CMPROJ - Camtasia Project File

What is a CMPROJ file

CMPROJ files are created by TechSmith Camtasia, a screen recording and video editing program for Apple Mac computers. All media files and information needed or used during the editing, are saved in the CMPROJ file, including video, audio, transition effects, different settings, and more. Since Camtasia is mainly a screen recording software, the CMPROJ files are typically used to produce demonstrations or video tutorials based on the screen recordings. For Apple Mac, these raw recordings are saved as CMREC or TREC files.

CMPROJ files are actually ZIP folders that contain other files needed for the video editing project. Thus, editing the file extension to any other character “e.g. filename.a” enables a user to manually open the folder and view the contents. In Camtasia, the files can be opened by clicking on “File” and choosing “Open Project”.

Here's a small, but not exhaustive list of programs that can open CMPROJ documents:

  • TechSmith Camtasia (Mac)
