What is a TSCPROJ file?

A TSCPROJ file is a project created by TechSmith Camtasia, a screen recording and video editing application. It contains the locations of all of the .TREC recordings and media files included in the project. TSCPROJ files also store all of the edits and effects applied to the project.

Camtasia can create various types of videos, including tutorials, video game recordings, training videos, and webinar recordings. TechSmith introduced the TSCPROJ file type when they released version 9 of Camtasia for Windows, replacing the .CAMPROJ file type used by the Windows versions of Camtasia. The macOS version of Camtasia still saves projects as .CMPROJ files, by default.

How to create a TSCPROJ file

When saving a video with the Windows version of Camtasia, the application creates a TSCPROJ project file to store the contents. After saving the TSCPROJ file, you can close it, then re-open it for further editing. To create a TSCPROJ file with the Windows version of Camtasia, follow these steps:

  1. Select File → New Project or New Project From Template... if you have not yet started a project
  2. Select File → Save or Save As...
  3. Name the project, choose the save location, then click Save

If you save a project as a standalone project (selected by default in the Windows "Save As" dialog) with the Windows version of Camtasia, the app creates a file folder with the .tscproj file extension (bears the same name as the project). You can open the folder by double-clicking it. Then, you can view the project's contents, along with the actual TSCPROJ file.

If you are using the macOS version of Camtasia, you can also create TSCPROJ files by selecting File → Export → Project for Windows.... This workflow creates a .ZIP file, which contains a TSCPROJ file.

How to open a TSCPROJ file

You can open a TSCPROJ file with Camtasia (Windows and macOS) by selecting File → Open Project.

NOTE: If you saved the project as a standalone project with the Windows version of Camtasia, you need to double-click the file folder with the .tscproj file extension (bears the same name as the project), then, you can open the actual TSCPROJ file.

Since TSCPROJ files store information in plain text. Therefore, you can open TSCPROJ files with text editors, such as Microsoft Notepad and Apple TextEdit, and view their information and metadata.

When opened in a text editor, you can modify the TSCPROJ file's properties. However, remember that if you incorrectly edit the file, you may inadvertently corrupt the project.

How to convert a TSCPROJ file

Camtasia can convert a TSCPROJ file to the following formats:

  • .MP4 - MPEG-4 Video
  • .GIF - Graphical Interchange Format
  • .M4A - MPEG-4 Audio (Windows only)
  • .MOV - Apple QuickTime Movie (macOS only)
