What is an .CMPROJ file?

.CMPROJ is Camtasia Project File

Project file created by Camtasia, a screen recording and video editing application; contains all media files, video edits, timeline settings, and project settings; often used for constructing software video tutorials and other demonstrations.

CMPROJ files are actually folders that contain several files, including the .CMREC screen recordings. To view their contents manually, remove the ".camproj" extension and open the resulting folder.

NOTE: While the Mac version of Camtasia uses the CMPROJ and CMREC extensions, the Windows version, called Camtasia Studio, uses the .CAMPROJ and .CAMREC extensions. The file formats are not transferrable between Windows and Mac platforms.
