Replacing watermarked audio

I have a piece of watermarked music that I want to work with in my video. Once I have the purchased piece, I'll replace the file in the library with the purchased version. Will I have to re-do all my edits? If so, I won't waste my time until I have the purchased piece, but that will put me behind schedule. Are there any assurances that I can do this?

Hi there

It should be as simple as replacing the audio. But if you aren't certain, you could easily test by just loading a different clip and replacing it and see what happens.

Cheers... Rick :)

Thanks Rick! I did a test (right-click, Update Media...) and it works just fine. Thanks for the suggestion. You have a good day.

Assuming the paid for track is the same length, duration as the watermarked audio track, its a simple matter of right clicking on the audio track from within the media bin and choosing 'update media' and then browsing to the desired audio track on your hard drive. Camtasia will 'find and replace' it wherever it exists in the project.
