Unfortunately, animated GIF files can't be added into Camtasia. Sure, you can import the file, but it will be as a static image. There is no animation at this point. I have checked the official forums and the answers is the same. The latest version of Camtasia doesn't support animated GIFs to be embedded into timeline. I have tried adding a GIF image (as shown below), but it's static. There is no setting to make it animated. Camtasia only allows you to EXPORT to GIF.
