I have a project created in Camtasia 3 which I need to send to my colleague to complete. He is using the Windows version of Camtasia 2018. He has been unable to open the project. I have now tried to open it on a Mac version of Camtasia 2018 and that won't work either. It is supposed to work. Does anyone know how I can solve this problem?

That's interesting. I can confirm that in my tests, I can open Camtasia 3 projects without problems in Camtasia 2918, both on Mac and Windows. In my case, a dialogue appears that says that the project needs to be converted, and an automatic backup is created (without overwriting the original file as to not make it incompatible with Camtasia 3).

If you can, send the file I question to the TechSmith team, you may well have discovered a bug.

I agree with Jay; normally a camtasia 3 for Mac project can open in Camtasia Mac 2018.
