Hi TechSmith Team,
There are workarounds, be it Audacity or VLC Player. This isn't a big deal for one-off MP3 production.
This issue is producing dozens or hundreds of long duration MP3 files. Workarounds double the production time. It's a time tax. One Camtasia customers didn't have to pay before.

It'd be great to have the feature back.

Hi TS-Team,

MP3 would a great but missing feature to me and my work. I dont understand that is more important to discus whether a dark or a light UI is better (offer them both, Adobe offers 4 possibilitys).
MP3 is still a very popular file format for audio and very usefull, not just for me.
Itsn't it much easier and better to save audio files in one program (Camtasia) than to convert them in a 2nd one like Audacity?
Proposal, add a posibility to use "lame" with Camtasia, like in Audacity.
Think about your customers.

I have a tool I use for converting video and audio Called AllAVsoft .
May not be the best solution, but it's been very useful for me.
