grainy blurry square things that show up in editing

I've run into a problem that has halted my video uploads, and I don't know how to fix it. I use OBS to record(and if it's an OBS problem instead of a Camtasia one, pleases tell me), and during editing, some grainy obscuring squares appear over intense action or quick lighting scenes that don't show up while I'm playing. It's happened in Battlefront 2, Republic Commando, and Bayonetta. I have a reference for it here, around the 3 minute mark.

I have no idea what this is called, how to fix it if possible, if it can be fixed, or where to fix it. Please help.

Not long ago Camtasia couldn't even import OBS recordings into the editor.So it might be associated with Camtasia. Can you play the recording on you desktop with a media player to check the video for errors?Before importing it into Camtasia.

So, it's baked into the recording then.

So I can't fix it in Camtasia? Should I change the recording data from flv to something else?

This guy is using a vastly different version of OBS than I am, possibly an older version. I couldn't follow him exactly, but I was about to adjust the bitrate as he said. The option for the UCBR is completely absent in my version, and I'm worried if that's the primary issue. I'll see what I can get after testing with a higher bitrate. Otherwise, I'll take my issues to them.

Raising the bitrate has improved it greatly, almost to the point I'd call it fixed.
