(This idea comes what what we’ve heard here in this community as well as from other customer feedback methods we utilize. The feedback we gather here will help us gauge how well it fits our users’ needs. Please let us know what you think)

The Problem

Some applications have rich motion or animations. The recordings of these applications seem lower quality because the Camtasia recorder frame rate doesn’t keep up with higher frame rates

Potential Solution:

Increase the Camtasia recorder’s ability to reliably record at high frame rates such as 60 fps

We were a bit surprised that screen recording at 60 fps didn’t track a bit higher in the voting. As is mentioned in the Import, edit, & produce 60fps video idea, there’s similarly a point at which high frame rate video is an expectation for screen recording applications. There’s a compelling case that the time has arrived. Based on our research, we believe the need for high frame rate screen recording is most prevalent among those recording gaming. Recording gaming isn’t historically a segment that we have pursued. Understandably, those wanting to record gaming don’t typically choose Camtasia primarily because of price but also because of the lack of 60 fps recording. No doubt, we have heard use cases for 60 fps screen recording outside of gaming. At this time, those use cases aren’t prevalent enough to drive up the priority of this idea.


We will bring 60 fps screen recording to Camtasia but that time is a little too far out say it’s planned so we will leave it at under consideration for now. We’ll update this post when the priority becomes higher.

Hello All,

We've updated the status of the 60 fps recording idea to Not Planned. Some of the foundational work has been started and we do anticipate picking up this work again late in 2018. That said, we do not expect to have active development toward this in the first half of 2018. This only applies to the 60 fps in screen recording. 60 fps editing and production is planned and that idea can be followed here. Thanks!
