I'm using camtasia studio 8 and I was going to make my second speedpaint with the Clip Speed feature but I speed it up to about 450% and the video and audio both got super choppy. The video was only about 40 minutes long. Any way to fix this?

Is the video playback choppy in the Editor?
 Have you tried to produce the video?
Camtasia can only increase clip speed by 400% if there is audio attached to the video clip.
Is your audio file separate from the recorded video clip?
 If so is the audio clip a mp3?

No
How do you produce it?
I've tried lower than 400
Yes
Yes but i've tried mp3's with my other speedpaint and it worked fine.

Producing it is just another way of saying "Render the Video"

Some Mp3's create problems for Camtasia. Especially variable bit formats.
Try this. Export the audio as a .wav file. See Image Below.



Then delete the original audio file and replace it with the new .wav file.

Does this solve the problem?
