Key takeaways from this video
When starting a new video project, it's best to create a standalone folder to hold your Camtasia project, Camtasia recordings, and other media. Common media file types include:
- TechSmith Recordings (.camrec or .trec files) These files contain screen video, microphone audio, webcam recordings, and cursor data
- Images (.png, .jpeg, etc.) Often used as title slides or other visual flair.
- Audio (.wav, .mp3, etc.) Background music tracks or narration recorded outside of Camtasia.
- Camtasia Project (.camproj) References all of your other media files. Open this file when you want to continue editing your video project.
