When I'm working on a series of recordings -- e.g. a number of lessons on some topic -- it would be great to be able to group these under a single heading. borrowing from the way Visual Studio works, I'm calling it "Production" for the moment (similar to a VS Solution). The idea would be to add Camtasia projects to the Production. In the Production properties, we should be able to define things like:
1. Root directory for the Production (Each project could be a separate directory under the Production Root)
2. Common settings for the finished product (e.g. FPS, sampling frequency, video size and resolution, type of output)
3. Default location for clips (e.g. in project directory or production directory)
We would then need a navigation pane to show the Production and its projects, with the ability to quickly switch between projects in a Production by selecting them with the mouse.
Other things will no doubt come to mind, but this is a start.
PS. As an alternative to a Production set up like a Visual Studio Solution, consider a directory-based Production. e.g. I have:
etc. with a navigation pane to see them all and their contents with the ability to open anything and copy/paste between them
