Just recovered from this "Camtasia Studio has stopped working" stuff, so thought to share the solution for the benefit to all. By the way, I'm using Windows 7 64-bit. Do the following:
1- Right click My Computer > Manage
2- Event Viewer > Windows Logs > Application
3- Level (tab), find the latest Error (red) log and click to see the details beneath
4- Find the "Faulting Module Name" and check which application is causing error? In my case, it was:
Faulting module name: QuickTime.qts_unloaded, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x5180f322
So, I uninstalled "QuickTime" application from PC; and that worked!
So, the punchline is, locate the application that is causing the error, which can be seen from Faulting module name. Simply copy that error log line and paste into Google to get an idea.
She contacted TechSmith support and the solution they sent worked:
1) First, save your project and close out of Camtasia Studio.
2) Open Camtasia Studio on it's own with a blank project, then go to Tools > Sharing > Batch Production.
3) Click on Add Files/Projects..., locate your .camproj (project) file and open it. Click on Next.
4) Choose the production option you would like (such as MP4 with Smart Player (up to 1080p)) and click Next.5) Finally, choose a local C: drive destination to produce to and click finish.
She had been running it from a network share and saving to same network share. Also, she had never done the Tools > Sharing > Batch Production before and suspects that is what fixed the issue for her.
So, the Batch Production may be worth trying for anyone else encountering this issue.
* That Flux Capacitor line above was a joke. Never use one of those unless you are in a Dr. Brown approved DeLorean DMC 12 or a late 1880's steam powered locomotive.
I recommend you contact our technical support team for help. Please see this topic for more information:
