Camtasia Studio 8.0.3 - Data rate for Vimeo upload not high enough?

When uploading to Vimeo it says "This video's datarate is only 383kbps, which is lower than what we recommend and means your video might not look as nice as it should. For HD video, we suggest you use a higher datarate, typically 5000kbps."
But I can't see in Camtasia Studio 8.0.3 how I can specify a higher data rate. ???

In Camtasia Studio 8.6 we added Vimeo output directly from Camtasia Studio.  The settings it uses to produce are stored in a file called Vimeo.xml which is a Camtasia Studio production preset.  However since this file isn't stored in your typical production preset directory but rather in your install directory you will need administrative rights to edit/replace this file.  This file is typically found at the following location: C:\Program Files (x86)\TechSmith\Camtasia Studio 8\Media\Studio\Images\Vimeo.xml

As a Camtasia Studio production preset it means you can replace it with one of your own if you would like.  This hasn't been tested!!!  But you should be able to replace the file with a production preset with the settings you desire.

The settings used are:
MP4 output at your editing dimensions,
Baseline profile,
Bitrate average of 800kbps
Audio bitrate of 128kbps

I hope this helps!
