Camtasia. Lately every time I "produce" my video it becomes blurry. It's fine in raw recording form. When I produce, the video becomes impossible to see what's on the screen.  I do have the latest version of Camtasia. I run windows 10.  How do I resolve this issue in producing?

You want to record, edit and produce using the same dimensions.So whatever dimensions you used to record the screen is what you want to stick with.
Is this by any chance a ultra HD monitor that you are recording on? Because that requires different techniques.

what dimensions are the "raw" recordings?

what editing dimensions are you using?

what are your production specs: file type, dimensions, etc

blurry productions are often caused by significant re-sizing of productions from the recorded size

best practice is to record, edit, and produce using same dimensions

Thank you both! I see where to adjust dimensions and the default that was coming up when I produce does not match my settings. So I'll produce now with adjusted settings. Consider this resolved unless I write back that I had further challenges. Appreciate it!
