How do I work on Camtasia projects between different computers?

Create a Camtasia Windows Archive or Backup Project

You will learn how to work on your Camtasia project on different computers.

Use the Export Project as Zip option to create a zip file to transfer a project to a new location, save a backup copy of the project files, or to send the project file for collaboration.

Moving or deleting original files (for example, on a hard drive or network) that are in a video project can break that project. Before moving or deleting any files, open your video projects and export them as a Camtasia zipped project file.

Be sure to select the Include all files from the Media Bin in zip option. This creates a self-contained project with backed up Media Bin files.

1. Create a Zipped Project

Select Export as zip in the File drop down menu.

1.   In Camtasia, select File > Export As Zip. The Export Project as Zip dialog box opens.

Set the file name and location, make sure include all files from Media Bin option is selected and then click okay.

2.   Choose a new name for the file, if desired.

3.   Click Browse to select a location.

4.   Enable the Include all files from Media Bin in zip option to include a copy of all media files in the Media Bin within the zip file. If this option is not enabled, only the media on the timeline will be included in the zip file.

5.   Click OK.

2. Import a Zipped Project

Select Import Zipped Project from the File drop down menu.

In Camtasia, select File > Import Zipped Project.

If you receive a warning notice about incompatible media in the project, click OK/Continue to open the project.
