It sounds like some process is pegging your processors and/or RAM. I suggest opening your System Monitor app to see what processing are running.

Processes such as dictation/speech, search indexes (such as Alfred), many games, and even Chrome tabs can really eat up resources. See what the big process hog is and shut it down.

Generally speaking, Camtasia is rarely the problem in the situation you described.

Definitely not normal; I agree with bobby.lester on trying to see what's spinning hard (whether it is camtasia or something else). A reboot would also be a good idea.

If these things don't help, I'd suggest contacting Tech Support so we can take a deeper look at what's going on with your system.
