Can you separate left and right audio within the same track.? I.E. When I record an interview/conversation between two people I will put separate wireless lapel microphones on each of the subjects.  One mic will be routed to Channel 1/L on the camera the other to Channel 2/R. The camera sums the two audio channels up together as a binaural track. During the editing process I will typically switch back and forth between the two mics so that I only have one microphone up at a time. Thus reducing any extraneous ambient noise such as cars going by coming in from the second microphone.

Camtasia doesn't have the capability of separating the left and right audio tracks.
You could export the audio from Camtasia. Open it in a program like audacity. Exporting each track individually.
Then import those tracks back into Camtasia and treat them as you wish.

I think you'd just get  mono? maybe times two?
To get two audio tracks, you need 2 audio sources, like 2 mics.

Camtasia exports audio in stereo.
The poster is recording to stereo utilizing 2 mics.
1 is captured to the right channel and the other mic to the left channel.
I don't see any reason it shouldn't work.

Adobe's Audition let's you import videos these days.You don't need to export the audio from Camtasia unless it's a .trec. You could even  extract a .trec if you wanted to. But thats actually a longer way around. And another story.

I think Audacity might support video import these days? Don't use it, I don't know?
