Question about TechSmith Camtasia Studio for PC

2 Answers

Extremely slow to update changes on timeline...

I'm using the latest version of Camtasia (5) on Vista. While editing a longer video (~20min), when I cut out a section of the video or edit the placement of the audio it takes forever for Camtasia to update the changes and gets progressively worse the further into the video. I've tried it on XP and get the same problem and the XP machine is well equip with the appropriate settings (memory, processors, speed, etc.). I've never had this problem with videos up to about 6 min - which is where my problems started. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

We are using the latest version of Camtasia Studio, which is 6.0.3, and its super slow once you get farther into the edits and we only have about 20 minutes of video and audio.

You still have to break up the video into ~5 minute chunks and then join them all back together at the end.

This is a known issue when too many edits are made. Supposedly Camtasia Studio 6 (recently released) will decrease your editing time by 30%. I have not been able to verify this yet. The best way to resolve the issue is produce what you have as an AVI and start editing that, and so on, and so on.

Issues after uninstalling microsoft office


There might be a possible malware/virus infection, scan your system with a good anti-malware software (I would recommend Quick Heal total security with latest updates), then try cleaning the registry using ccleaner (freeware) or any good registry cleaner software, Try installing Ms Office again and check if you can access your files.

Memory Problems


The clip can be recovered if you open the temporary directory where Camtasia stores the raw captures in AVI format. The path to the temporary directory can be found by opening the Camtasia Recorder > Tools > Options > Program > Temporary file folder (I'm using v.5 so it may be a little different in other versions).

I've found that there's a certain workflow that seems to work best and you can avoid accidentally erasing your temporary files and having to start your capture session over from the beginning...

  1. Stop Camtasia Recorder - Pressing the Stop button on the Recorder likely won't work, so open the Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DELETE) and select "CamRecorder.exe" from the Processes tab and click "End Process". Don't open Camtasia Studio right away after doing this step - You'll likely be prompted to recover the recording and in my experience Camtasia hasn't done a very good job at being able to do this successfully and you may end up losing your temp files.
  2. Recover your raw capture files - Navigate to the path where Camtasia stores its Temp files (look above for instructions). Typically, there will be a folder titled "CamCapture{random string of numbers/letters}" - look for a folder with a date modified attribute of the date/time you were working on your project. In that folder, there will likely be several audio and video files as well as an XML data file. The video files will all be 1GB apiece as Camtasia splits the capture into chunks and then pieces them back together to create one continuous file. Cut and paste the files from this folder into a new location outside of the Temp directory. The most important one is the FileWriter{random string}.avi as this is the pieced together file - It will have the largest file size.
  3. Add your media files to the clip bin/timeline - Start a new Camtasia project and import the FileWriter{xxx}.avi clip into the Clip Bin and drag it onto the timeline. Now all of your video/audio should be recovered and available for you to edit. If you have particularly long clips, you may want to check how the audio syncs with the the video towards the end of the clip. If it's messed up at all, you may want to try adding the smaller, chunked recording segments sequentially onto the timeline to see if that helps. If the FileWrite{xxx}.avi clip is good though, you can delete all of the other smaller audio and video clips associated with the capture from your pc to save space - just keep the FileWriter{xxx}.avi clip - the XML can be deleted too.
Good luck - We've had the same trouble here and we use Camtasia almost everyday. In my experience, this seems to happen more frequently when we capture larger dimensions - especially if the capture contains full motion video (as opposed to just screen captures of a product demo or something) and we always seem to have trouble when capturing things that play back FLV or SWF clips at a higher bitrate. This issue is also described in TechSmith's Camtasia knowledge base.

There may be no driver required for vista for the USB access to the camera.

However one of the manuals indicate Roxio may provide updates for photosuite. No assurances there are that either link to provided software is applicable to your version however generally updaters will not update the incorrect software. There is also no notation that these are or are not Vista Compatible.
