Hi there,
I believe you are asking:

If I use the animated backgrounds that come with Camtasia, in my video, do I have the rights to upload that video to YouTube?

And, the answer is yes - with a couple of exceptions that are laid out in the Camtasia End User License Agreement, namely section 11.
I would refer you to that document in you Camtasia installation program file.

One of the exceptions to using the content we provide for you is it MUST be used to create a Camtasia video. You cannot use that content with other software programs or in a standalone manner. Nor can you share or redistribute it to others.

Here is a bit of the breakdown of correct usage of the content supplied to you by TechSmith:
11.2.3     Library Content Restrictions.
Notwithstanding the non-exclusive license to the Library Content granted in 11.2.2above:

(a)  You shall not resell, market, distribute, sublicense, lease or rent the Library Content on a stand-alone basis (i.e.other than as part of your Content created in connection with your use of the Software) in any manner, including, without limitation, online auctions or on any other online or mobile or wireless or other storage media devices;

(b)  You shall not use the Library Content other than in connection with the Camtasia® software program or any upgrade or later version of the same.

(c)  You shall not use the Library Content or any part thereof, as part of a trademark,service mark, trade name or logo;

(d)  You shall not use the Library Content to compete with TechSmith;

(e)  You shall not use the Library Content as part of a product, program or service o rany electronic format intended for multiple distribution or licensing,including, without limitation, templates for web sites, software programs or services, video games and game consoles, etc.;

(f)  You shall not use the Library Content in any way that may be considered defamatory, pornographic, libelous, immoral, obscene,fraudulent or illegal, infringing upon any intellectual property rights of others or rights of publicity, an invasion of privacy or that would be reasonably likely to bring any person or property reflected in the Library Content into disrepute;

(g)  You shall not remove any notice of copyright, trademark or other proprietary rights and/or notice embedded in the Library Content;

(h)  You shall not install or download the Library Content on a stand-alone basis (i.e. other than as a part of your Content created in connection with your use of the Software), in more than one location at a time or post a copy of the Library Content on a network server or web server for use by others;

(i)   You shall not display the Library Content on a stand-alone basis (i.e. other than as apart of your Content created in connection with your use of the Software) in an electronic format that enables a Library Content to be downloaded or distributed via mobile devices or shared on a peer-to- peer or similar file sharing arrangements;

(j)   You shall not use the Library Content in any manner which would give a false impression that TechSmith somehow endorsed,sponsored, approved or co-authored your Content; and

(k)  Any and all rights not specifically granted herein or in any additional terms,conditions or restrictions as referenced in this section, section 21 and the Addendums set forth below, are reserved by TechSmith and/or its suppliers or licensors.

I hope this helps!
