Edited an hour long video down to 30 mins but when I went to export it and shared it the file still is an hour long 30 mins of my video and then the other 30 mins is black. How do I delete unneeded timeline? I must of missed something in my training.

  • Unprofessional as I was asked to edit and I said I knew what I was doing and then to come to find out I don't!

Scroll to the very end of your timeline. Something remains there to make Camtasia think your video is still 60 minutes long. It could be an annotation or a clip. Delete it and resize the timeline a couple of times, you should now see a 30-minute timeline unless something else is still there! 

Another hint: right-click on the name of one of your tracks, select "Delete Empty Tracks". If any unexpected tracks remain, your culprit is likely on that track.
