Batch Production Bug

  • Problem
  • Updated 2 months ago
When running a batch production, a nice dialog appears and presents the progress of the production.



 There is also a Camtasia icon on the Windows taskbar that appears to indicate progress:



These are mismatched. I suspect what the taskbar icon is depicting is the progress of each individual project that is part of the batch. 

In my view this is a bug and the taskbar icon that is presented for a batch production should reflect the overall batch progress and not the individual project progress.

Kayakman, do you have a video on how to run a batch production?
I've created (and rendered) 43 videos of lectures and demonstrations, but it turns out that YouTube doesn't like the 3 seconds of "Dust in the Wind" that I used in my intro. So I have to re-edit the Intro.
No sweat, I delete first Intro, "delete unused files" in the Media container, insert my new Intro with Camtasia copyright-free music (ho-hum but safe), re-align the content with the Intro and ... wait until the project renders. Usually that gives me time to wash the dishes or fold the laundry (good thing I work at home), but I'd love the ability to re-edit 10 clips and go to bed while they each take an hour to render - I could wake up in the morning to fresh coffee and new appreciation for Camtasia.
Strange - YouTube had no problem permitting 3 seconds of Daffy Duck doing a hula-dance in the old Intro, but it caught up with a snippet of Dust in the Wind. Not simultaneously - I had some other copyrighted hula music that YouTube also missed.

Just to expand a bit on what Bob Lewis has posted.
Once you've made an edit to a project and save the changes. This updates the project files.
So you can do this with as many videos as you like, loading the project files into the batch converter as Bob mentioned. Presto

Heres whats occurred at U-Tube in a nut shell.
People started uploading copyrighted  material many moons ago. They were collecting royalties by allowing the videos to run You Tube sponsored advertisements. You can disable or enable advertising in account settings.

The owners of this copyrighted material  started screaming piracy many moons ago.Which to be fair it was.
Stopping people from doing this proved to be a daunting task for You Tube. My guess is they didn't want to put themselves out of businesses by deleting the accounts of offenders. Should they Accidentally or "Purposely" uploaded copyrighted material. I think this was being done by the bulk of their customers.

So they came up with a system. Its not perfect, as no process usually is {:>)
However, you tube has created a system that detects copyrighted audio about as fast as it gets uploaded.
I uploaded a Video/Tutorial on the best way to record a Google Earth video using their screen recording engine. I Uploaded it April 13 / 2014. So almost 6 years ago.
It received a copyright strike at some point quite some time ago.

I don't have advertising enabled.
Plus, even if you did. You Tubes created a system that allows owners of this content to file claims against their material. When You Tube catches it, they funnel any advertising profits to the rightful owner.
YT informs you of when you've violated a copyright.In most cases they state something along this line........You've uploaded Blah blah blah., it doesn't mean you have to remove this video but a copyright claim has been filed against you.
Most owners are happy to collect royalties you've generated for them.End of Story/Concerns.

If the claimant demands you remove the video or audio.You must comply or risk endangering your account.
You even have the option of editing the video through the content manager using You Tubes video editor. So you have options if things get dicey.

Aside from that,  a copyright strike is not a big deal. I currently have 4.

The Google earth video has 380,000+ views. The bulk of those views occurred after they issued the copyright strike. I quit worrying about the issue long ago.

Its probably best to avoid these conflicts. Stick to content that haven't  drawn strikes.

Yes, I've heard that after a certain number of strikes (or arbitrarily), YouTube will "strike the channel," i.e., remove it. I work for a non-profit medical society, so that wouldn't be too nice. I'm sticking to the clean route, with no chances of copyright infringement (at least until they start monitoring every single image loaded into the MP4 clips. I assume that's coming....

I'm not suggesting that erring on the side of caution isn't the best approach. That was not my intention.
I will say this, I've had infrequent contact with this woman for years..........
She has over 700 music videos uploaded at this time. Practically all of her content is copyrighted.
  

Shes also located in Italy. I don't know if that effects her or not.

The main point I was attempting to get at? 
When you receive a strike you can edit the content on you tube.
Saving you the trouble of re-editing in Camtasia.
Without uploading it again, which can be much easier to do.

Heres a screen shot of the editor.



If You Tube says take this video down.
And you ignore their demands. 
Yeah, they will only tolerate your flagrant attitude/violations for so long. That's also on you

It's fairly simple. Click  File Menu  then  Batch Production  and follow the prompts.
ADD only the Project files,  Not the original unless you have made No Edits.
