Camtasia Studio8: Rendering so slow!. 8min webinar recorded as WMV file - in 2 days only 65% rendered. I have tried rendering to 720 and also keeping the final size the same as the recording (1366) but it doesnt seem to speed it up. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
The issue is related to your WMV file; webinar services like GoToMeeting, GoToWebinar, Cisco WebEx use proprietary encoding information for their videos and editors like Camtasia are unable to decode for editing/production. Please use the free tool Handbrake to transcode the original WMV file, then once a new MP4 is created, open your project and right-click on the WMV file in the Clip Bin and choose "Update Media." Select your newly-created MP4 file; Camtasia will attempt to replace the WMV file with the MP4 file and apply any edits. Once that is done, try producing once more.
