How to Edit DVD clips through Camtasia Studio (7, 8)

Where gives you a solution of Camtasia Studio DVD importing problems that DVD fans often meet while playing or editing DVD clips in Camtasia Studio 8/7/6 etc.

Acting as a professional screen recording and video editing software, Camtasia Studio and Camtasia for Mac are not only a screen video capture software but also video editor software which also allows the user to record audio from a microphone or speakers, and to place a webcam’s video footage on the screen. We may choose the generally used Camtasia Studio (7, 8) to merge, split, trim, crop, edit and create videos.

Besides directly editing the recorded file, Camtasia Studio can also support to edit the videos people import.

When we want to edit our DVD videos through Camtasia Studio (7, 8), it fails. Why? Because Camtasia Studio do not support DVD format video as the input.

If you want to import some footages from DVD into Camtasia Studio, you must convert or re-record them into one of Camtasia Studio supporting formats, like AVI, mp4/h.264 (AVC) or WMV formats.

When doing Camtasia Studio DVD conversion, you will need a Camtasia Video Converter. Users will recommend Brorsoft DVD Ripper.

This software works very well and operation is simple. It can generates more optimal editing formats/codecs for you to use in different NLE apps, such as Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, Premiere Elements, Sony Vegas Pro, Windows Movie Maker and more. Personally I am very pleased with the product. As I have only used the product a few times so far it is difficult to give any constructive comments at this stage but all my conversions were done successfully with stunning image quality – I can hardly tell any quality difference.

For Mac users, please get Brorsoft DVD Ripper for Mac.
