This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Camtasia 60 fps

Hi! I recently recorded with my phone (iPhone 6s) in 60fps. The problem is that Camtasia (studio 8) when I overview the 60fps footage Camtasia starts lagging up the video in canvas. I really need help, please leave answer as soon as you can! Thanks.

Camtasia Studio is not designed to support 60 FPS media; 30 FPS is max recommended

Hey Erik Granlund,

Just to expand on this a bit. Camtasia will actually discard frames of footage placed on the timeline as well.So, it's not just a playback issue with Camtasia.

The footage will be reduced to 30fps as soon as you place it on the timeline.SO if your looking to edit and produce 60fps videos. Camtasia won't do it.TechSmith has said they intend to add 60fps support footage in the future.When is still in question.


If your looking for a cheap video editor with a lot of features and in the USA. Corel Video Studio 9 Ultimate is on sale at Amazon for $30. That's giving it away.Video Studio 10 is due out soon but it will be at least $100 when it comes out.
Video Studio was one of the first editing programs I switched to  when Windows movie maker no longer met my needs.It's still a fairly simplistic program to work with and has more features and effects than necessary.It even has a screen recorder.However, Camtasia's screen recorder is better by comparison.
