Camtasia Studio 8 Rendering Issue?

  • Updated 3 months ago
So I've been having this issue with Camtasia Studio 8 regarding rendering. I tried looking for solutions here on the support page, but everyone seems to be having a different issue entirely. I have a video I've edited that's about ~17 minutes long, and when I tried to render it...it wouldn't get past 0.0% and after about a minute, the rendering dialog box would close and bring back up the Camtasia Studio 8 project window. When I went to find the file in the folder it was to be rendered to, there was nothing there. I at first thought it was just my copy of Camtasia, so I tried to render a different project, and it worked. So then I thought that maybe it was a problem with the project itself, so I copied all of the material from the previous project into a new one, and tried to render it under the same settings (MP4 with a bitrate of 1600), and again, it didn't work. I tried decreasing the bit rate, but to no avail. I've been using Camtasia for about five months and have rendered numerous videos much longer and larger than this one with little to no problems. Any help would be appreciated!

Same problem, word for word. Has anyone looked into this?

I found if I delete four tracks I can get it to render. I'm not sure what the problem is, but if anyone finds out I'd appreciate some feedback.

Wow is this problem not even being looked at? like how are we meant to produce our videos if Techsmith are not responding to forum help requests.

Okay after looking more into the subject of this issue I have found if in Camtasia studio itself you go to the top right hand corner where you see the dimensions of your footage and that will be what it will get rendered to, you need to either change the dimensions (near where it says shrink to fit, to the same dimeansions that your file will then be produced > rendered in. For example I changed my dimensions in Camtasia Studio itself ontop of the preview box (top right) to eg, Automatic 720p then when hitting produce and export I made sure the file was made to the same setting mp4 - 720p, This worked for me. Try for yourselves.

I will try it. I did get my earlier video to render by removing 4 tracks, rendering, importing the rendered clip back in, editing, and rendering again. Not very convient.

Hi,

I stumbled over the exact same problem described in the original post a few days ago. In cooperation with the techsmith support I found out that Camtasia obviously has problems with very big video source files, which is of course inconvenient, but avoidable if known.

I had a 40G video source file, of which I used only a part in seperate smaller projects. Behaviour as described above. Then I tried it with <4G video source files, adding them up in the timeline, and the rendering at least started, though I didn't take the time to let it finish, since my projects are 90 mins each and I need to recut first.

All in all, I really think this was the problem, even if the original big file was handled, cut and treated perfectly in the timeline view. The rendering routine however seems to need smaller source files. The techsmith guy said something about <10G, but I tested with <4G and since this is a comprehensible 32bit barrier, I think you should be save with that.

Best Regards and good luck!

Hi Christian and Samo,

There have been some changes to the rendering over the past year, so the new issue might not be the exact same as the original post.  Please open new support tickets for personnel to look at your project specifically.

Thanks and regards,

Hi all

We want to thank you for your patience while we worked to improve Camtasia. Camtasia 9 is a 64 bit application and that has substantially helped us to improve performance, stability, the ability to work with more complex projects,  allows Camtasia to take advantage of more resources if you have a more powerful machine, and allows Camtasia to edit and produce larger video dimensions.  Most of these benefits will still only be noticeable on stronger machines (see our system requirements). Video editing and rendering is a very computationally intensive process unfortunately.

We have found having access to more computer resources has resolved many of the issues we saw in version 8.x, especially when working with large video files. If you're running 64-bit Windows, you can download the free trial here.

Please feel free to post your feedback and feature requests here in our Community forums and remember, all technical support-related inquiries should be directed to our dedicated Technical Support team at https://support.techsmith.com/


Apologies for the inconvenience and the wait,

Scott Schmerer

Very frustrating!!! Cannot render - stays at 0.0% forever. I am using Version 0.0 with Windows 10. I used to love Camtasia, now it crashes and locks up all of the time. Cannot even test on the timeline anymore for fear it will lock up. This is very unacceptable - how can we get any work done??

possibly a corrupted project, at or near T=0?

perhaps remake it from scratch

or cut off the 1st second or two, and try render again; if it renders, issue will be at beginning of project
