Lots of folks use Camtasia Studio and Camtasia:mac to record their screen, but want to edit / composite the recording inside professional tools such as Final Cut Pro, Premiere, After Effects, or Vegas. The rub has always been that in order to get the footage into these tools you first needed to transcode the video from the proprietary recording format to a supported container / codec. Oh and by the way, you’d like to retain the lossless quality and small file sizes found in the original, but proprietary codec. Fat chance, right?
Not so fast. I’m here to tell you that its not just possible, but downright simple to directly import and edit screen recordings made by Camtasia:mac in the video tooling of your choice on the mac. You heard that right – direct import without transcoding the video. No long wait times. No bloated file sizes. Lossless footage. For realz. It’s the shiznit. Check it out.
