Camtasia Studio records in one of two file formats; as a CAMREC or AVI. By default screencast recordings are saved
as a CAMREC file.

The CAMREC is a custom file container that holds more than just a video file. Other video editing software can't read
or open a CAMREC file. The data contained in the CAMREC allows you to edit your video within Camtasia Studio
after recording is complete.

The CAMREC file may contain:

AVI screen recording

Webcam video to use as a Picture-in-Picture
Cursor data
SmartFocus zoom and pan keyframe data
Keyboard shortcut data
Audio from a microphone
System audio
Marker data

To Change the Recording File Format

Camtasia Recorder, Tools > Options > General tab > Saving group box > Record to option.

Select one of the following formats:

Camtasia Recording File (.camrec):

Default recording file format. Proprietary TechSmith file format used to store screen and
camera recording plus metadata about various streams into a single package. To add
markers, apply SmartFocus, or record a Web camera, you must record with this format.

Audio Video Interleave (.avi):

Use .avi files to share the recording outside of Camtasia Studio.

You cannot add markers, apply Camtasia SmartFocus™, or record a Web camera
with the .avi format.

Extract the AVI or WMV from a CAMREC Recording

The Extract Camrec Contents option allows you to extract the screen (.avi) and camera (.wmv) recording files from
the .camrec file. Use this option to edit the main video and Picture-in-Picture (PIP) clips separately.

Or, use the AVI file extracted from the CAMREC with a third-party video editor as long as you have the TSCC or
EnSharpen codec installed on the computer. When installing Camtasia Studio, the TSCC codec is also installed.

If you don't have Camtasia Studio installed on the computer you use to edit the video, you can download the TSCC
or EnSharpen codec

To Extract the AVI or WMV:

1. In Camtasia Studio, right-click on a .camrec file in the Clip Bin.
2. Select Extract Camrec Contents from the context menu.
3. Select the destination and click OK.

The .avi (screen recording) and .wmv (camera recording) files save to the directory selected.
