I'd ready this is not possible with Camtasia. Is that true? Is it something that will be added?
I purchased camtasia studio because it ticks all the video editing boxes that I require, except for one. As stated above I would like the ability to alter the brightness, contrast, and saturation of a video stream before exporting it. If this feature was available it would turn Camtasia Studio into a one-stop-shop where all the required features are available, rivalling other video editing software like the Mac's Final Cut.
I do understand that Camtasia was never designed to be exclusively a video editor; but the prospect of pushing it in that direction, plus the popular interface and following it has built up amongst the video editing community, should make this a necessary feature for deployment as soon as possible.
An update on this situation, from the software guys, would be encouraging.
I would also like to have the ability to capture mobile video screens (i.e. Android and iPhone - good luck with the iPhone!) but that is for another topic.
Thank you and others for your comments on this topic.
We have identified this as a feature to be added in our next major release.
I would like to draw your attention to this post:
And in particular, video #6:
... that shows how this feature will work in the new version of Camtasia. I know this doesn't help those who need this feature right now, however, we want you to know we read these posts and understand our customers need for this feature.
We want to thank you for your patience while we worked to making changing your video brightness and contrast achievable. We are pleased to announce that we have just released our newest, most powerful version of Camtasia yet. This Camtasia release has a new visual effect for Color Adjustment.

Really sad to find out it's included in the paid upgrade.
My Camtasia install is from my employer's subscription/account. Apparently I'm the only one in the company who's still using Camtasia, so there's no way I'd get them to approve an upgrade just for me.
Is it possible that the subscription they have would automatically include 'one free upgrade' or something like that? I don't want to install 9 only to find out I love it but can't keep it.
When will Brightness and Contrast be available for Mac Users?
Shall we wait another 5 years like the Windows guys there?
No offense because I like Camtasia very much and I understand it was originally built as a Screen Recorder exclusively but also great chances are that the success of Camtasia is also because a lot of people like me use it as a quick video editor.
THANK YOU for providing these 2 (IMPORTANT) settings in Camtasia 3 for Mac!
PS: My current version is v3.0.6
The first thing that happens when applying the color adjustment filter................
Values become all blown out and it's a ridiculous place to start making adjustments from.
I've used a lot of video editing programs, I've never used one before that can practically blinds you a fraction of a second before you are expected to apply color corrections.
Why in the world would I want to destroy 3 color settings? Turn the canvas area "Stark White or Black". As a prelude to correcting "Saturation" as an example.
The logic is beyond logic.
So you need to set 3 values to "0" and let your eyes re-adjust . Then you can apply color correction.
Why oh why are these sliders not set to ZERO by default??????????????????
Can somebody please give me a logical explanation for that?????????????????????
