Hello,
I write here because I have the following problem. Exporting a video from Camtasia 2 this video has a weight of 45mb, but exporting the same video again from Camtasia 2 but on another computer a little more old as model, the video has a weight of 20mb. Why is this happening? I would like to use my new computer because the videos are being exported much more quickly but the size of these videos is much more large. What can I do to solve this problem? The color depth and screen resolution on the two Mac computers is the same. The configuration of Camtasia on both computers is exactly the same. One of the laptops is model 2009 and the other is model 2013.

This could be caused by a few different things.
First, make sure you really have the same version of Camtasia on both machines.
Second, if the OSX on one computer is different, it may use a different encoder.
Lastly, check the export settings to see if they match.

Yes, In the both computers I have installed different operating systems, but the same version of Camtasia and export settings on both machines.

That could be the cause, then. Something you might like to try is an "Advanced Export" and choosing another encoder, the "MainConcept" encoder, as seen here:
