I believe Camtasia requires 8 GB of RAM and recommends 16 GB and you at most have 3.2 GBs that is usable. So your computer will always have problems with modern programs that require more than you have. Sorry.

Camtasia version 8 32 bit couldn't have required 8 gig; a 32 bit OSĀ  itself can only access 4 gig and unless you faff around with physical address extensions (which would need to have been supported by C8 anyway, and I doubt it was), any given process could access only 2 gig of that. Requiring 8 gig for that version therefore would have been pointless.

But I would agree that a 32 bit platform in general is too restrictive for video editing. You can do it. Back in the C6, C7 and even early C8 days most of us older hands almost certainly HAVE done it, but it's not recommended and does your blood pressure no good at all. Unless someone has an archaic piece of hardware with only 4 gig of RAM on board, I can't think of a good reason for being on Windows 10 32 bit. If the hardware DOES have only 4 gig, it is IMHO time to upgrade if you want to do things like video production.

The other thing to be aware of is hard disk space; if this is an old 4 gig machine then it may have a very cluttered hard disk drive, and if there isn't enough space there may be problems when it goes to virtual memory, especially if there are a bunch of other applications running.

if that's causing the problem then an aggressive hard disk cleanup coupled with running NOTHING but Camtasia when you're rendering may help alleviate the problem, but the real solution is a hardware upgrade. Something as intensive as video rendering simply isn't a good fit for a 32 bit / low memory environment.
