Sorry, Sendi. I have no experience with this. Perhaps someone else could comment?

Camtasia is Try before you Buy.

Note: The trial version is fully functional but will watermark your videos.

I looked at the specs for a Microsoft Surface Studio. Both versions, and they have fantastic specs.

Surface Studio

Surface Studio 2

There both excellent computers that exceed Camtasia's needs.Microsoft has a 30day no questions asked money back return policy, if you purchase the Surface from the Microsoft store.

Camtasia doesn't always work as it should with other hardware. It Took TechSmith almost a year to fix an incompatibility issue with my GeForce graphics card. Theres a new unresolved issue with audio when I use it.

So if you haven't purchased a Surface  Studio yet. I thought you might like to know about this option.

You can run a trial of Camtasia at the same time, there are no restrictions, aside from a watermark on produced videos.That are not supposed to be shared. They allow rendering for evaluation purposes.

So a test drive may be your best option.

Thanks for responding, Joe.
Interesting that you should mention GeForce and audio. I just got my new computer with nVidia p4000 GPU. Now, every single video clip, whether video (.MTS) or audio (including Camtastia's audio library) takes a second to kick in before I hear audio, and that is what it also renders to an MP4 file. I have to start my timeline at +11⁄2 seconds in order not to miss the first beats of the audio track.
Is this to what you are referring? Or, in poorer English, is this what you're referring to?

No, in my case a 52GB recording using Nvidia's shadow play. Deletes the audio wave form from the beginning of the the video to the point I do a ripple delete.

I reported it to tech support.They said they cannot reproduce the issue without the video.
Smaller ShadowPlay recordings I possess don't have this issue. They want me to send them the video so they can test it.
I have a slow internet connection because I live in a rural area with no fast internet options to subscribe to. It would take me a week or so to upload 52GB.So I won't be doing this. I have clients and more impotent matters to attend to.
So this may or may not effect others?

Hi @sendi2005,
I can confirm it does work on the Surface Studio very well.  We are currently utilizing one in our training studio.  If you'd would like I can get the full specs we have on our model.
