Audio Skips and Repeats

  • Problem
  • Updated 1 week ago
I have Camtasia 2018 and I've noticed that it still has the same problem with parts of audio files skipping and sometimes repeating parts of the audio.  This problem has existed in all versions of Camtasia that I've owned.

The audio tracks (MP3 format) are separate, ie. they are not part of recorded video.  The video is actually animations I have created and I'm adding voiceovers.

Parts of the audio will often skip, and repeat the last second of the audio.  The audio files themselves were converted from VBR to CBR.  They even exhibit this behaviour with the Media Bin preview mode.

The exact same audio files play perfectly outside of Camtasia.

The only one sure fire solution I'm aware of. And its been the exact same thing through all versions of Camtasia.

Convert the mp3's to .wav using these settings.
I made this image many years ago.

You can covert them in the free program Audacity.

Or chose some other technique. I use Adobe Audition.

There's free online converters and many other options. Do a Google search.

Thank you for sharing this solution -- the audio skip/repeat was driving me crazy! Converting to .wav works perfectly.
