Transcript:Camtasia Movie ExportHi. I'm Don Schechter for About.com Computing.
Today I'll teach you how to your Camtasia projects into a movie.
Choose a Camtasia Project to ExportI've already got a Camtasia project open with clips on my timeline. You can create a new project and import clips to put on a timeline for exporting.
Camtasia Export SettingsTo export my footage I'll go to File, Produce Video As.
Camtasia Export and Production WizardThis brings up the Production Wizard window. You have a couple choices.
If you click recommend my production settings Camtasia automates the export process by asking you questions on what you want to export too.
You can select custom production profile and create your own export settings.
I'll click on MOV since I want to export a Quicktime movie, and I'll click Next.
Camtasia Export Encoding OptionsThe Quicktime encoding options windows comes up. I'll click on Quicktime options to adjust settings.
I'll click settings, and change the compression type to H264. Frame rate on Current, Keyframes on Automatic, and I'll raise the Compressor Type to High.
Encoding quality is set to Best quality, Data rate, Automatic, and I'll click OK. And I'll click OK again.
I'll click size, select custom under dimensions, and I'll type in my screensize, 1280 by 1024 and click OK.
I find it useful to export at fullscreen in case I need to zoom in when making tutorials. I'll click Next, and click Largest Video Size and click Next.
On the video options screen I'll leave all the settings unchecked and click next. I wont change marker options and click next instead.
Additional Camtasia Export SettingsI'll name this screen fullsize, I'll click the Browse icon and choose my desktop and hit save.
I'll uncheck Organize Produced Files Into Subfolders. I'll click Show Production Results, and also check Play Video After Production. And Ill click Finish.
It takes a little time to render so be patient. And there's our exported file. I'll hit the play button. I'll close it and hit finish when I'm done.
Camtasia Export for WebIf you want to export at a web friendly size you can follow these steps change the custom dimensions to 320 by 240, or whatever size you wish.
