24 FPS question

  • Updated 2 years ago
Hi guys, could someone please help me on this...

I want to "screen record" a video shot in 24 fps playing in the background, with my audio narrated on the mic.  

However, the Camtasia 9 recorder doesn't record the video in 24fps but in 30fps nor when i import the .trec file into Camtasia 9.  I can't change the production settings to 24fps in Camtasia (it defaults to 30fps).  So my problem is... recording the audio is fine, but as soon as I record the 24fps background video and try to produce it to a new video, the background video comes out choppy and laggy but my voice recording is fine.

Any ideas on this? Thank you

Hello there l_raath,

You can set the recorder to record at 24 fps. Just open the recorders tool bar and highlight the frame rate by double clicking inside the box and type in 24 .

Hi Joe, thanks for the reply, i have tried that, the problem is when you produce the video in Camtasia 9. The Camtasia program is set to 30fps by default. You cant change the production settings to 24fps. So the output file is choppy.

Great point Rick,

So l_raath .
As it turns out, all video added to the Camtasia timeline is converted to 30fps and there's nothing you can do about it.I just tested for it and can confirm it.

Record the screen at 30fps without the other video.
Then, brought that 24fps video into Camtasia and added it to the timeline. Use it as a  picture in picture effect it might help but I wouldn't count on it.

I've always known 60fps footage was down-sampled to 30fps.
I didn't realize it up-sampled frame rates to 30fps as well.

Frankly, it's kind of ridiculous from my stand point.
Not only does it pretty much guarantee choppy video output.The conversion process must slow rendering times as well.

If you come up with a setting or process that works/ Or nothing works.

Please post back with your results.

Regards,Joe
