Significant Differences Between Mac and Windows Versions of Camtasia 2019

The Mac and Windows versions of Camtasia 2019 are significantly different, especially when it comes to visual effects. When, if ever, will TechSmith balance out this imbalance. For someone who uses both, it would be very helpful to know that if I need to use a certain visual effect, I can rely on it being in both versions, rather than having it only in one. Thanks in advance for a reply.

I am,

Hi Paul,
We're sorry for the frustration on that. Camtasia used to be quite different between platforms; completely incompatible, in fact. However, over several years we've been striving to bring these together such that now recordings and projects are compatible across Mac and Windows. However, as you point out, there are still some things that are not available cross-platform. 

I'll mention to the team that it would be helpful to make it more clear before you use something that isn't cross-platform compatible.
