I’ve used camtasia to record my tutorial videos, only to edit though. From my understanding of your question, you are going to need to export the video instead of just saving it.

But it is somehow difficult for a newbie when facing so many options and parameters. Another thing is its output CAMREC and CAMPRO, which cannot be directly played on Windows Media Player or VLC. You must firstly convert it to common formats. The weird thing is that I found an instruction article (, I did what it told me, but after I stream the output mp4 file ( which is from camtasia) to my Windows Media Player, the screen get black and a sign " unrecognized" emerged. Camtasia is an excellent, but still, many bugs need to repair.
