Thanks for your question. You can easily separate the audio and video to separate tracks. Just right click on the media clips you want to separate the audio from, and select separate video and audio from the context menu. This works in Camtasia Studio 8 and Camtasia for Mac.

I hope this helps!

Hi Shane,
I have used this a lot in the past and found it to be a great feature.  However, I am using a new installation of Camtasia 8 and I do not have that option on the clip.  I am able to change the audio to silence, but I want to use the audio, just timed differently on the timeline.  Is there another way to separate audio and video other than the right-click method?
Thanks.

Shane - I have been editing a video lecture and working on using closed caption for the first time. When I played it back I had just audio. When I click tracks the video1 track is greyed out. I can't figure out how to get the video back (trying not to panic!). Thanks for any advice.

Thanks, I'll go give it a try. Seems that I was getting separate tracks when recording, but now it's on the same track. Win7 64 appears rather confusing to me and I do not understand yet how to configure it so I have consistant results.
Will let you kknow how I make out.

Regards,
Griz

If you record system audio and microphone audio, the microphone audio will be combined with the video on one track, and the system audio will appear on a separate track.

When I record system and mic, both are joined into one track. How do I make them each be in their own tracks so when I do a white noise removal it don't also badly muffle the system sound?

Thanks Shane, looks like that did the trick. And thanks for answering the next question I had (about the third track) before I even asked it. I may get the hang of this program. I'm really pushing because I need to show real progress before my trial runs out and make the justification for my purchase.

Thanks again.

Umit, In Camtasia Studio 8, just Group any arbitrary tracks you want to combine.

Camtasia Mac 2.x can have any number of tracks, with audio and/or video on any of them. You can also name the tracks (Hooray!)

Umit, put any audio clip on a track, then use the audio editing commands like SPLIT to cut it into pieces. You can then move the pieces on the timeline.

Watch the tutorial videos, read the help files, and try it for yourself. This is very basic.

Well thats the oposite of my question... I learned macs do not have this option. I wanted to put the audio from a DIFFERENT record to video from a DIFFERENT record and put them back together.

1. Add the first recorded video to the timeline.
2. Separate the audio and video tracks in that audio.
3. Delete or move the video track.
4. Add the second recorded video to the timeline.
5. Separate the audio and video tracks...

You get the idea. Try it, and also watch the tutorial videos.
