Can I set Camtasia to start recording as soon as I open an application? The option described here sounds perfect but doesn't seem to exist in Camtasia. I'm using the latest version.

I see that is for using Morae and if memory serves me right I remember a post from quite awhile back as to where for Camtasia Studio there was a way to schedule a recording to automatically start and stop. The post with that information is below and I am not sure if it works or not in Camtasia 9 as I have not tried it.

I am not sure if this is what you are looking for or not but hope it helps a little. If this is not what you are wanting then you may consider contacting TechSmith Support with a support request to ask them about what you want to do and find out if it is possible which in Camtasia I am thinking to have it automatically record when an application is opened is not possible but I have been wrong before. The information for Support is below and it is a free service.
