Camtasia 8 and 9 Minecraft not Recording

When I was using Camtasia 8, I was able to record Minecraft in fullscreen with no problems.  I upgraded to Camtasia 9 and recorded about 5 hours of gameplay.  I went to edit to find that NONE of my gameplay was recorded.  

My recordings show that I load the game and click around Minecraft and Minecraft screen doesn't move.   Cam 9 tracks my mouse movements, but it shows me clicking in thin air.  I AM SO DISSAPOINTED THAT I PURCHASED THIS SOFTWARE!

How do I fix this?

Hi Jay;

Are you recording in Windowed mode (as is required for Camtasia when recording gameplay), or do you have Minecraft running in fullscreen mode?

Hi there!

I am not sure I understand as I am able to run Minecraft in windowed mode, see:

In fact, Minecraft opens up in Windowed Mode and I need to manually maximize the window in order to get full screen. Note that there is also an option to turn fullscreen on or off in the game (most games have that ability) as seen at:

Changing that Fullscreen option should give you a Windowed version of the game.
