I took some videos with Camtasia Studio 8 and I want to play them on my iPhone 6Plus. The output files are in .trec format and can be only played using the same program. How could I transfer the files to mobile phones or to other more common video formats?

If you are suffering from the same issues: have a collection of TREC files created by Camtasia recording software and want to smoothly convert TREC to MP4, AVI, MOV and other different formats as well as transfer them to your portable gadgets and even smart TVs, you have come to the right place. Here I want to share you a free but awesome method to convert TREC files to popular video formats.

What is TREC?

Actually a TREC file is not a video format but a rare project file. It is created by Camtasia which is the popular screen recorder and video editor. And a .trec project contains video data, audio data and other user settings. So this kind of file cannot be directly played by Windows Media Player, VLC, let alone mobile phones and only Camtasia Studio can read it.

So if you want to easily share your interesting recorded .trec files that you have spent a long time working on, you need to first change the file into a normal video. That is, you must convert TREC to MP4, convert TREC to AVI, MOV, MKV, WMV, FLV, WEBM, HTML 5 video, MTS, VOB and many more to resolve incompatibility troubles. Now follow the steps below:

Step 1: Save TREC to MP4

Open Camtasia Studio 8  now. > Click on “Import Media”, you are able to import .trec files from hard drive, Google drive. > Add the selected media onto timeline and press “Produce and share”. > The Production Wizard window pops up. Click the dropdown list and choose MP4 with Smart Player (up to 720p). > go the next step: type a name and select the output folder. TREC to normal MP4 is done.
