Hi there and thanks for stopping by!

To clarify a few things; first, Camtasia Studio 8 did not have the ability to create a true 60 FPS video, nor was producing to 60 FPS an actual feature of version 8. Note that when you added any content that was greater than 30 FPS to Camtasia (current version, or any previous version), the Studio actively cut out any frames beyond 30 frames per second. This means that your 60 FPS content instantly because 30 FPS content by simply adding it to the timeline. The common "workaround" for producing to 60 FPS from Camtasia Studio 8 was to produce to MOV (which requires QuickTime) as QuickTime's plugin allowed for the altering of FPS. This does not take your 30 FPS content and instantly make it smoother, as it is simply doubling the frames from the Studio. Think of it like this, if you have 60 pictures that you took in quick succession, then throw away  every other picture, you are down to 30 pictures; when you are done looking at those 30 pictures and you want to get 60 pictures, you would copy your existing 30 pictures until you got 60 pictures. Camtasia does the same thing with high framerate content (the higher the FPS, the more frames cut).

With Camtasia 9 we no longer provide the option to produce to MOV (largely due to some incredibly heinous security issues with QuickTime, see: https://support.techsmith.com/hc/en-us/articles/218277178 ) Rather than force our users into installing a potentially massive security risk, we opted to remove the function altogether.

As we mentioned here, we do intend to add 60 FPS support, however we do not have a definitive release window for the update. A way to help move along the process would be to understand how, in a traditional business setting how high framerate recording and editing can improve your recorded presentations, tutorials, and other video content (or to know whether the desire for high framerate support is more consumer-based in nature). Any input on how you would use 60 FPS content would be great.

Camtasia studio 8 is better than Camtasia 9.
When i record & edit with camtasia software, they looks best quality but fact is that after rendering, the video decrease 20% & more .
Youtube recommend 45fps, 50 fps, 60fps video.
Everyone love Techsmith software, kindly produce a new version of camtasia studio.

Gamers who use Camtasia for editing would very much appreciate the ability to export to 60fps. And there are a lot of us out there. For that single reason alone you should add the capability to export to 60fps almost immediately. I don't get how you guys haven't realized this.

Dear TechSmith,

You say you want to "understand how, in a traditional business setting how high framerate recording and editing can improve your recorded presentations, tutorials, and other video content".  The fact you're asking this shows you're completely clueless.

Why would we want >30fps?  Smoother video, duh!  Why do you think video cameras and displays are going to 120Hz?  And you haven't even figured out the reason to go to 60Hz?

Haha total bullshit, I'd even pay 300 bucks for 60FPS/showing keystrokes/light motion blur just like ScreenFlow on OSX. But no, they don't want the money, gotta stay on OSX then.
