Camtasia does not prevent Mac going to sleep

This is a super annoying problem because Mac goes to sleep while rendering and/or uploading.

Some programs handle this correct - some do not.

Unfortunately, Camtasia also does not.

What is pretty bad, because the OSX and macOS API are offering a standard function for that. My workaround is to use "caffeinate" in a terminal session - but this is of course only a very inconvenient workaround...

The screenshot was made while Camtasia 2019 rendering. So, I must guess how long it takes. If it's more than 7200 seconds, I have to start all over :((((
