Sharing project with more than one computer

I frequently work on my projects with multiple computers. Since I am using Camtasia for my job, some of the work is done on my work computer. But since my most useful tools are on my home computer (e.g. audio editing tools) I also work on the projects at home. I synchronize my files to both computers using my home NAS. But since the folder paths are different between the two computers, I have to remap the media elements every time. In the beginning it's not too bad, but after the project is developed a bit it's really a pain. I'm not sure what a solution could be (...relative path...?) but I would really like to see this addressed somehow...

The easiest thing to do is export the project as a zipped project.That folder will contain all the media as well. So the file size can be large.
Then, you just unzip the project and carry on.

Re-zip to move back to the other computer, rinse and repeat as necessary.

In case you don't know where to find the export  options.

Joe's suggestion is how I would also do it.

I like to record on one computer with a good microphone and sound damping and send it to my laptop for editing.  While the second computer is compiling/exporting, I go back to the first computer to make the next video. I can do that in Camtasia 8 but I understand I can't do that with Camtasia 9, so unless that changes I won't be upgrading.
