Acting as a professional screen recording and video editing software, Camtasia Studio and Camtasia for Mac are not only a screen video capture software but also video editor software which also allows the user to record audio from a microphone or speakers, and to place a webcam’s video footage on the screen. We may choose the generally used Camtasia Studio (7, 8) to merge, split, trim, crop, edit and create videos.
Besides directly editing the recorded file, Camtasia Studio can also support to edit the videos people import.
When we want to edit our AVCHD camcorder recorded videos in the file extensions of AVCHD (*.MTS or *.M2TS) through Camtasia Studio (7, 8), it fails. Why? Because Camtasia Studio do not support AVCHD MTS/M2TS format as the input.
