What is a LIBZIP file?
A LIBZIP file is a zipped library used by TechSmith Camtasia, a screen recording and video editing program. It contains media assets such as intro titles, presets, and themes. Camtasia users export and import libraries as LIBZIP files with the software to share assets with other team members or Camtasia installations on other computers.
Camtasia is a Windows and macOS app that captures screen activity, such as a software demonstration, how-to tutorial, webinar, video conference, or online gaming session. The software includes resources, such as title clips, callouts, and transitions, for enhancing videos (you can also create your own).
You can access the libraries that store resources in Camtasia by selecting "Library" in the left pane, then clicking the dropdown menu next to "Library:" in the pane. In this menu, you can manage and create new libraries.
