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, along with the edits and effects applied to the project. The Windows version of Camtasia saves projects as TSCPROJ files by default, while the macOS version saves projects as .CMPROJ files; both versions can open TSCPROJ files.
Camtasia can create various types of videos, including tutorials, video game recordings, training videos, and webinar recordings. TechSmith introduced the TSCPROJ file type when it released version 9 of Camtasia for Windows, replacing the .CAMPROJ file type used by the Windows versions of Camtasia. While the macOS version of Camtasia saves projects as CMPROJ files, it can also export them as TSCPROJ files.
How to create a TSCPROJ file with the Windows version of Camtasia
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 and re-open it for further editing. To create a TSCPROJ file with the Windows version of Camtasia, follow these steps:
- Select File → New Project or New Project From Template... if you have not yet started a project
- Select File → Save or Save As...
- Name the project, choose the save location, then click Save
How to create a TSCPROJ file with the macOS version of Camtasia
You can create a TSCPROJ file with the macOS version of Camtasia by selecting File → Export → Project for Windows. This workflow creates a .ZIP archive, which contains the TSCPROJ file.
How to open a TSCPROJ file
You can open a TSCPROJ file with TechSmith Camtasia in 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.
Opening a TSCPROJ file with a text editor
You can modify the TSCPROJ file's properties when opened in a text editor. 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 several file types, including the following formats:
- .MP4 - MPEG-4 Video
- .GIF - Graphical Interchange Format
- .M4A - MPEG-4 Audio (Windows only)
- .MOV - Apple QuickTime Movie (macOS only)
You can also export a TSCPROJ file as a .CAMPACKAGE to back up or share resources with other Camtasia users. To do this, select File → Export → Package.
