What a product man?
Literally, I think that I wasted my money!
My problem is, that videos appear choppy in camtasia 2019 at timelime playback, whiles the same video runs smooth on camtasia 8.
How could this be possible?

I have a dell Inspiron 15 5558.
4gb graphics.
Intel graphics.
8 gb ram.
1 tb hdd.
Windows 8.1 64 bit.

Please don't advice me to update my drivers, because for this software, I've clean reinstalled windows and all drivers updated.
I've searched everything, and
Done everything.
But couldn't find a FIX for my problem.
File size threshold FIX was of no use.
USE Software-only mode FIX was of no use.
What should I do?

This issue is mentioned so often that it is one more reason I have stayed with v8.6.  Good luck — and please post if you find a solution!

just curious, but have you tried the 2020 trial to see it those issues continue?

I don't have them myself

Have you tried "Software Only" rendering? It fixed me.

You tried everything? But not an OS upgrade to Windows 10. Current version (1909)  is 5+ years ahead of 8.1 and it's still free.  - OR - waiting updates (Windows 10) may be punishing you for not upgrading. If you insist on not upgrading do a "System" "Clean Disk".

You mean that if i'll upgrade to windows 10? Then I can successfully use camtasia 2019 without LAG?
But what if the problem persists then also?

No, I won't say that  windows 10 is a panacea,  buuuut . . . if you upgrade then 93% of this community can play the same game you're playing and one of us may have great advice.

If Windows 8.1 is a loser, why keep re-installing it ?????

Click "Search" and type " Clean Disk" a 1st window will appear, click "OK".  On the 2nd Window bottom-left, click "Clean Up system files".  When the next window appears put a check mark in every box - then Click bottom left "Clean up system files". It may take a while but Windows will allow you to work (for a limited period) without interference. HTH
