Why won't Camtasia accept my video file from OBS? To make it do I need to insert it to Avidemux to convert to something acceptable with the settings on the image. Can I change the settings of either Camtasia or OBS to accomplish that?

Every time I record a video I need to convert with this program, so imagine if it is hours long.

Unfortunately, unless the OBS recorder offers a standard recording format these days you will need to convert them in order to import them into Camtasia.

Here is a response that was posted by an official Rep for Camtasia.https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/cant-import-obs-into-camtastia?topic-reply-list%5Bse...

I researched this issue for a week now. It seems that the problem occurs because OBS records the video with a non standard codec (not H.264).
Fixed it using this tutorial -

I hope there was a more built in feature in OBS to fix this issue.
