Hello, I was recording a lesson with camtasia and when the record hit 2 hours, windows 10 send me a message saying that my pc was out of memory, but it still as 150 GB free. What do I do?

It might be easiest to break the recording into two separate recordings.  After doing both recordings you can then import both recordings into Camtasia and go from there.

fmella's suggestion is a good one but also, don't confuse "memory" and "disk space". Memory (random access memory, or RAM) holds data that the computer is currently working with. Disk space (which is what 150 GB would be) is how much space you have for long term storage of data. If computers run out of physical memory they can use hard disk space as "virtual memory", but there are limits to what they can do with that especially if you are working with 32 bit (older) software, which is what Camtasia 7 would be. There are limits to how much actual RAM a 32 bit program can access.

The message was therefore probably telling you that you were out of RAM, not disk space.

If you are working with larger projects regularly you should upgrade to Camtasia 9 which is a 64 bit program (and can therefore use more RAM) provided that:
(a) You are using 64 bit Windows (which most versions of Windows 10 are); and
(b) Your computer has a decent amount of RAM. For working with larger videos I would say that 8 Gb of RAM would be a minimum.

If you're working on computer with 4GB of RAM or lower, anything beyond fairly rudimentary videos will not be a pleasant experience.

Incidentally, 150 gig isn't that much hard disk space either if you are working with a lot of large projects; it will vanish painfully quickly if you are doing full high definition recordings. I know of what I speak.

Whatever you do end up going with make sure that it's not based on a Java Plugin or it will be going the way of the dinosaur sometime very soon (Chrome stops supporting this delivery mechanism this fall). Can't say I blame them, as it came out when Netscape was still a thing. Going here to know more about 1scasino.

We really need a spam reporting mechanism on this site... mods / admins, would you care to deal with this?
