Camtasia 8.4.1 crash Editing and Producing

  • Updated 6 years ago
Since I have updated Camtasia to 8.4.1 it has crashed on me during editing. Now it has crashed on me twice attempting to produce a video MP4 with Smart Player (up to 720p).  The first few crashes Camtasia was able to recover my edits.  I had to reboot the computer before I could use it again.

Now it's crashing attempting to produce.  Below are the Crash Details:

Since it didn't fix the Noise Reduction issue (the reason I updated), I regret updating to this new version. The next time it crashes on a edit, I will capture the "Crash Detail" and report it here.

Castasia 8 has been stable up to this release.

I suggest you revert back to the version that was stable for you.

You can download and install a new or an older version from this link.

Similar problem here. What are the older versions like? Which one was more stable for you? What would NOT be there on the older versions?

I've reverted back to 8.3.0 and everything works fine. No crashes anymore.

If I revert back to older version, will I loose my render PRESETS? I assume I have to uninstall 8.4.1 first.  I have 8.3.0 in my downloads folder which never crashed, but does not have some of the newer features however.  I also can't use Noise Reduction, sounds like I'm in a hollow tube. I want to redeploy 8.3 but don't want to lose presets. Any Tips?

BubblyBibleGirl 8.3 won't let you temporarily MUTE the track (If I remember correctly), als the Smart Player won't let you speed up a video (a feature I just deployed).  But you can edit without crashing, and Noise Filter works.
