Camtasia Latest Version feature question

Hey Guys & Gals,

I am running the latest version of Camtasia with all updates and i have a question about features and recording.

If there a way to record a game with audio and 2 different microphones all at same time so each audio would be in its own track?
So game audio in track 1 mic 1 in track 2 and mic 2 in track 3.
I know after I record mic one and game I can then add a narration track but was looking for a way to record multiple devices at same time.

Please let me know.
Thanks in advance

Unfortunately there is not a direct way in Camtasia to do what you are wanting. Without spending extra money on other equipment to have this ability it is not possible to do live in the Camtasia Software. Camtasia will allow as many tracks you want or need to add but it will not do Mutli-Track Recording Live in one shot wit 2 mics. It works the way you stated above but that is not what you were wanting so I hate to be the bearer of bad news. Hope this helps a little and thanks for posting. Have a great day/night.

Hi Drauka....I tried your suggestions, and the audio works on my internal Lenovo webcam, however, I'm recording using my external Logitech camera and that continues to have the sound problems in recording.

 It begins to record my voice, but almost immediately the sound gets quickly distorted, and then completely cuts-out, NOT RECORDING ANY VOICE....

Thanks for your help but it seems that I have isolated the problem to the USE of the  Logitec camera coupled with the sound......Not sure where to go from here?

Hi Drauka...quick question, in your response, the first suggestion in Device Manager,
 
-----1st open device manager and when issue happens see if there is a conflict with the device or other devices.

NOT SURE WHAT THIS MEANS?  I discover the problem when I SAVE and PLAYBACK the recording.....Should I be testing something else?

Hey sorry for poor explanation.

When device manager is open start your program that you use that gets the distortion.
Start recording and then once recording is started look in device manager and see if any of your devices shows up with a red x or other symbol. So while the recording is running for if you see no conflict in device Manager you can rule out a conflict.

At that point once you have recorded enough (as much as you normally do) to see if the recording you just made is distorted. If it is distorted you can rule out a conflict.

Then you can do the other steps:

2nd option i would try is unplug the webcam and plug into a different usb port as it will install on that port fresh.

If that does not work you could force the usb to reload the drivers.
Open device manager and go to Universal Serial Bus controller and right click the webcam item and uninstsall. Then go to  Sound, Video and Game  controlles section and find webcam there and also uninstall it.

Once that is done unplug the webcam and restart.
Wait till system is fully restarted and plug the webcam back in.
It will reinstall the drivers and you should be good to go.

Hope that makes sense now.
Good luck.

Thanks for the explanation. It's been frustrating, so temporarily I recorded using the Logitech software instead, and audio and video were fine.
I'll continue to try to solve Camtasia issue, but I think I've isolated it to an audio setting on either Camtasia or Logitech because audio and video working fine on Logitech platform.

And I didn't consciously change any settings so it's a mystery to me....
Thanks again
