I have tried this on 2 computers and it seems to stop around the 24%. I have looked at other people with the same problem but still cannot fix this. All I need to know is either how to convert camproj to cmproj so I can render it on my brothers mac which should work (cause its a mac with high specs) or if someone could render it for me and I send you the download link for the clip bin and the camproj.

your image suggests that a 2nd app's process was active at same time; what app is this?

Same problem with mp4, but when i render with AVI, the audio quality is shit. No matter what encoder i put it on and what quality i put it on, it's simply shit. It sounds fuzzy and robotic

That is called Steam. Go to store.steampowered.com for more info about it. I also tried rendering on a better pc with better specs and the problem I now have is that when it is rendering it will crash without any message boxes.

OK

can you render if Stream is not running?

where did the source project clip[s] come from; did you capture them with Camtasia Recorder?

describe the project [clip dimensions, editing dimensions, type of edits made, etc]; a full-screen image of the project at ctl-F9 zoom would help

I suspect a possible project corruption at 24%, or you are running out of memory during render

can you render a small timeline selection [right click, produce selection as]

also, I do not believe there is a way to convert a windows project file to Mac version

Hello. It will not render when *Steam is running. I recorded one of the files with camtasia studio and the rest are mp4, wmv, mp3, wav and jpg. I will get a picture when I am on the computer as I am on my iPad right now. At the moment I have Mike S rendering it for me. Would it work if I rendered half the video then rendered the rest and put the halts together.

first, projects made from a mix of media types can be problematical

re rendering in 2 parts .. that may well work; perhaps give it a try ...

make 2 MP4s [no player], combine those 2 MP4s into a composite project

I'll give it a try. If it doesn't work, like I said, I have someone else rendering it for me

Just tried to render a 3rd of the project and it randomly crashed.

It seems to crash when I get to the part with lots of layers/tracks. The reason for this is because it is an mlg parody. I really need help cause I need this by tommorow!

only remaining suggestion I have is that you simplify the project; large number of tracks and large numbers of objects on timeline [including cuts and splits] can be a problem; the Library can help you accomplish this

also, grouping tracks together can sometimes help

if you still have some time, perhaps try the techniques described in this tutorial to simplify your project so that production might be possible ...

Exact same issue here. Was rendering a bunch of MP4 files that were rendered previously in Camtasia Studio. Simple project - just a bunch of MP4 files with some fades inbetween. Fixed the problem by rendering to an uncompressed AVI file and then using Adobe Media Encoder to convert that to MP4 outside of Camtasia Studio.
EDIT: This was with v8.6. I've had similar problems in the past as well, though persistence got me through that by trying over-and-over again.
