What is a CMPROJ file?
A CMPROJ file is a project created by the macOS version of Camtasia, a screen recording and video editing application. It contains all media files, video edits, timeline settings, and project settings. CMPROJ files are often used for constructing software video tutorials and other demonstrations.
To open a CMPROJ file, follow these steps:
- Open Camtasia
- Navigate to the location of the CMPROJ file and select it
CMPROJ files are actually folders that contain several files, which may include the .TREC or .CMREC screen recordings and media files. To manually view the contents of a CMPROJ file as a folder, replace the .cmproj file extension with any other character and open the resulting folder. You can change the extension to any other character, such as .a or .z.
Only the macOS version of Camtasia uses the CMPROJ and CMREC extensions. The Windows version uses the .TSCPROJ file extension, which replaced the .CAMPROJ extension with version 9 of TechSmith Camtasia. The file formats are not transferrable between Windows and Mac platforms.
