Just a quick question. If I create project files in Camtasia 7 on a PC will my coworker be able to open them on his Mac?

thanks!

Hi JMH,

Currently, the project files are NOT portable across platforms. It's certainly a desirable feature, and one we may explore in the future; but no such luck for now.

There is some compatibility of the source recordings, or you can produce (a.k.a. export) your project to a video format that is compatible on the other platform. More details can be found here: http://techsmith.custhelp.com/app/ans...

Hi JMH, great question and one we hear frequently from customers.

The program feature sets and media frameworks are quite different between Mac and Windows so the answer unfortunately is that project files are not cross-platform.

We do have some workarounds to make it easier for you to collaborate, please check this article on our support site.
