1. Does anyone know how I can convert a video, so that it will work with this feature?
2. Also, it would not let me import a .mov file, is that something new or something I did wrong.

Put together 5 video tutorials regarding tracks mattes, and how to use them.
Complete with exercise files. If you want to wrap your head around track mattes.
This is a great place to start.
As far as .mov's go. A lot of mov's are not supported by Camtasia.
You could convert them in a program like handbrake.
Since I wanted to use that particular video, I didn't know if there was a way to convert it. The Techsmith written tutorial (which includes a download) said it had to be an alpha channel. I wanted to see if I could convert an already created video to that alpha channel, so that it would show.
