  2. Enter a file name and location.
  3. Select a file type.
  4. Click Save (Windows) or Export (Mac).

Export Audio with Additional Project Information (Windows Only)

The Camtasia Production Wizard allows you to export .m4a audio file along with project, author, and iTunes details.

  1. Click Export Export button > Legacy Local File.
  2. Select Custom production settings from the dropdown and click Next.
  3. Select M4A – audio only and click Next.
  4. Step through the wizard to create your audio file.

Export to Audiate for Editing

Export audio to TechSmith Audiate to reduce the time spent editing narration.

  • Use text-based editing to quickly remove words or edit hesitations, such as “ums” or “ahs.”
  • Edit and correct the transcript to export as a script or captions.
  • Send the edited audio from Audiate back to Camtasia. Camtasia automatically syncs the rest of the media on the Camtasia project timeline.

To learn how to export to Audiate and then return the edited audio to Camtasia, see Edit Audio.
