It's not an official feature as such, but it does work. Here's how: when you open a second project, Camtasia for Mac does not close down the first one automatically. Instead, it opens a second instance of the programme. On my Mac Mini from 2012 (quad core i7 with 16GB) I can open three projects comfortably and let them all render. It'll take time of course, because all projects are rendered simultaneously, but it works. It's not as elegant as a render queue or Adobe's Media Encoder, but does the trick. I suggest you open all projects first, then kick-off the render one by one (carefully I say, because Camtasia is using 100% CPU usage, so your Mac will be less responsive during such time).

I'm sorry, there isn't a batch export feature for the Mac yet. I appreciate you letting us know that this would be useful to you, though.

I'm curious about a little more background, if you don't mind- what does your process look like? What kind of videos are you making that leads to editing 50 videos then exporting all at once? Knowing more about the real-world use of this is helpful.

Hi Paul, what I do sometimes is edit several videos before exporting them. I don't have the time to have my computer sit there blocked and unresponsive, fans spinning like crazy, while Camtasia is using all its resources to render a file for 20 minutes or so. What I do then is to start editing my next video, and when I'm finished editing two or three, I let them all render for an hour or two simultaneously. Then I can either go out, or do something else on another machine.
 
An export queue would be nice because it means I can have the video render in the background while I keep editing - it's all about time efficiency. It's very different on Windows where rendering thanks to GPU acceleration is just so much faster and probably not that important.

Instead of a queue, you could also consider writing a standalone rendering app so that another machine (for example an unused laptop) could be churning away, while we important humans do more exciting "creative" work.
