Share to Vimeo: Advertised but not present

Just paid for Camtasia3 Mac. The Products page for Camtasia3 states: "3) Create your video:
Anyone can make and share engaging videos with Camtasia. Upload your videos to Youtube, Vimeo, Facebook, or Screencast.com. " Since there is an explicit Share menu in CT3, the assumption is that when you buy it you'll be able to use the Share feature to access all the listed sites. I mean, otherwise, you folks could either drop the list of 4 sites from that page, or add every video sharing site on the Internet to your advertised list of "Upload to..." sites!

But the Share menu as of 3.1.2 only has Local File, Screencast, Youtube and GoogleDrive. Can we assume or at least hope that Vimeo and Facebook will be added (or re-added, according to some of the other posts on this topic) to the Share menu soon, to make it reasonable to use these services? I assume that the SC and YT entries provide video format presets that are appropriate to each particular service, and would prefer to use Vimeo with the same level of convenience.

In the meantime, much manual work for Vimeo users. Please hurry!

And if it's not coming, this seems to border on false advertising...

No, it doesn't, but thanks. I am logged in to my Vimeo in Accounts, and it was always checked in the Share Menu. BTW I am using Camtasia Mac, that link is for Snaggit.  Are you saying it is supposed to work in 3.1.2? Does Vimeo appear for you in the Share Menu on Camtasia Mac?

No, there isn't (currently) a share directly to Facebook or Vimeo. However, there isn't anything special about the format of video that is shared to the built in sites. It is the exact same video in all cases that you would get if you produced it yourself. They are just built for convenience to upload there in less clicks. 
It's good to know that if we built a Vimeo share destination, you would make use of it, so thank you!

I have Camtasia myself It doesn't have direct support for Vimeo but you still can still use vimeo.  in Camtasia you must convert to mp4 first and save, Then you use the Mac's own support for Vimeo  and share to vimeo, or you can go into vimeo, and upload the  the mp4 file. It's a pain.  Of if you don't want the hassle Get Screenium and you can share  direct with vimeo.

Thanks for the reply @pjonesCET. It's a shame that people would have to move away from Camtasia and advise my friends to do the same just for lack of one little feature that I'm sure the TechSmith developers could implement fairly easily, given that their Snaggit already has this feature! @paul_middlin please feed this back to Those In Charge. Thanks.

Don't get me wrong I'd still rather use Camtasia. But sometime you have to bite the bullet. It's shame just because  TechSmith  say Apple supports it they can't either. Neither Vimeo nor YouTube competes against them yet they allow importation to YouTube but not Vimeo

Apple does let you Share to Vimeo from the file explorer or finder so IDK why it won't be supported by Vimeo. I don't think Apple blocking it, I think TechSmith has to implement some code to make it work.

For now, this might help save you a few clicks?
Right-click on your produced video, and choose "Share->Vimeo", as seen here:

Indeed, Paul, that is exactly what I meant when I said above: "Apple does let you Share to Vimeo from the file explorer or finder". Thanks for illustrating it. HOWEVER, when trying to replicate it, I stumbled over this, which ONLY appears in the "Export Finished" dialog, and which will save even more keyclicks. "Well, I'll be jiggered!"

Well I'll be jiggered too! Why hasn't anybody surfaced this before? The Vimeo requests have been coming for a couple of years!

Uh, because the button is SO SMALL? Because it's in the dialog instead of the Share Menu where it belongs? That, at least, is why it took ME so long to find it :-) Still, glad it's there, and 'better late than never" :-) Cheers

SUMMARY
So to pretty much conclude this thread (and I'm sorry but the forum won't let me edit the title or anything like that), the functionality is there, and seems to work, but it could be made more obvious (e.g, change the tiny icon button to the word Share), and it could be packaged a bit and put under the Share menu. Plus, it seems like FB is in the same category.
