I own Camtasia Studio 6. I would like to also have Camtasia 8. I currently have 8 installed as a trial. The main reason I need to keep 6 is for conversion to .swf; I took part in an Adobe connect conference recently that wouldn't accept .mp4 recordings, only .swf. But 8 has some great features I'd like to use! If I buy the license for 8, will I still be able to run both without problem? I say they are running smoothly but I have had a few crashes that could be due to the dual installation or something else.

According to Techsmith, you can have multiple versions of Camtasia installed. Should run without a hitch, I know it does for me.

I would have to second what Mike has said. I would like to add that if you are running two versions you may need to change the Hotkeys for certain tasks as they could interfere with each other or another application. I hope this helps. I too run two different versions of Camtasia Studio with no problems yet.
