i need to discuss soe major things,
i use camtasia for making youtube videos using images and voice over narration like The Richest Channel. But its a complex process which include multiple layers of images (background blurred images + normal images) , voice naration, music clip, animations on images and behaviours+transitions on all stuff. Problem is that , when i produce all this complex stuff to make video, it takes a loooooooot of time for small videos of 3 to 4 minutes. I am using camtasia 9.0.3 on hp core i7 with 6GB of Graphics (4GB Intel Shared + 2 GB Nvidia Geforce). I have set camtasia to use NVIDIA card but still it is very very low. When i render video, it produce it fast but i am using multiple images ( a lot of images) instead of videos, it should process it faster than videos but not. Please do something about it. I am using camtasia for 2 years and has always faced this issue. If your reporting agents are lazy then please hire me so that you make quick fixes as soon as possible.

Check out this example video:  Biggest Animals it is made with camtasia studio 9.0.3 on Windows 10

I'm not using C9 but have you verified the production settings.  Perhaps the settings being used on C9 are higher than CS8.  File size is an easy clue.  (This happened to me when the default preset was used.)

You mean it renders slow when we use default presets? But it occurs on manual settings too

No, I mean if on CS8 you were processing with moderate sound and video settings but with high settings on C9 it will take longer and the resulting file larger.  This has happened to me when I used a default preset (don't remember which one).

My suggestion, while waiting for others to help, is to verify you are using the same settings on C9 you used in CS8.

If you are wondering why it takes so long, you pretty much gave the perfect reason: lots of things going on. A possible reason might have to do with the file sizes of images and such used in the video. Bigger file sizes can take a long time to process.

Before editing, you can always try to compress your images and such to a lower size. If you are afraid of losing quality, there are a few lossless compressors out there, which you can find by doing your research.
