Tech about TREC Format

TREC, a container format, is used for storing content for tutorials and demonstrations by Camtasia Studio which is a video recording and video editing software for Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS X operating systems. TREC file can include video, audio data and other user's settings. TREC format is compatible with both Microsoft Windows and Mac versions of Camtasia.

TREC format was released with version 8.4.0 of Camtasia Studio (Windows version) and version 2.8.0 of Camtasia for Mac. It replaced the previous .CAMREC (for Windows) and .CMREC (for Mac) extensions for screen recordings. These two old formats are not compatible.

TREC files are not compatible with any popular software, players or portable devices. That means you can't directly play TREC files on Windows Media Player, iTunes, QuickTime, iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, Android, Xbox, etc. What if you need to view TREC videos on the above mentioned players and devices? What if you want to edit the TREC files in Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere, and Final Cut Pro?
