What is a CMPROJ file?

A CMPROJ file is a project created by the macOS version of TechSmith Camtasia, a screen recording and video editing application. It contains all the imported media files, video edits, timeline properties, and project settings. Camtasia users save projects as CMPROJ files when creating and editing their videos, then export them to other formats to share them.

Camtasia can create various types of videos, such as video game recordings, tutorials, training videos, and webinar recordings. While Camtasia is available for macOS and Windows, only the macOS version of Camtasia saves projects as CMPROJ files.

The Windows version saves projects as .TSCPROJ files (replaced the .CAMPROJ file type with version 9 of TechSmith Camtasia). If you are using the macOS version of Camtasia, you can also create TSCPROJ files by selecting File → Export → Project for Windows.
