  • You just need to change this version as per your Camtasia version, in my case I am using Camtasia version 2018. So, change “version” : “5.0” to “version” : “2.0”

  1. When I try this and change it from 2022 to 2018 (6 to 2), it removes all by clips/cuts from the timeline, so I have to start over. Any recommendations?
