Camtasia Essentials: Organizing Project Files

eLearning Brothers

However, bins are not available in Camtasia 9, so you have to come up with alternatives. In this blog, I’ll give you three ideas on how to organize your work so that you can keep your head on straight when using Camtasia 9.

But it doesn’t help you keep your files organized once they’re in Camtasia.
