Can Camtasia Studio support all MP4/MKV/MTS/M2TS/MXF/MPG videos? The answer is NO. Check the solution here.

In Camtasia Studio editor, you can import multimedia objects of various formats into the clip library and arrange them in time order and stacked tracks using the timeline form of user controls that is so common among video editors today. Overlays of various types may be added including user-defined settings, such as when and how to display the cursor, pan-and-zoom effects such as the Ken Burns effect. Sometimes when we want to edit MKV, MP4, AVCHD MTS M2TS, MXF, H.265 videos through Camtasia, it fails. Why? Because Camtasia Studio and many other video editing programs do not support these video formats as the input. What are we supposed to do then?

Camtasia Studio Supported formats

The following formats are able to be imported into Camtasia Studio for editing & production:
  • AVI
  • WMV
  • MPEG-1
  • MP3
  • WAV
  • WMA
  • MP4 (AVC/h.264 at no more than 30 frames per second)
  • MOV (QuickTime for Windows must be installed for MOV import.)
  • MTS and M2TS files. (Version 8.4 and later). You will need the AC-3 Filter if running Windows 7 or Winodws 8.0.
