Camtasia doesn't actually utilize the GPU all that much to begin with.Not in my experience.

Camtasia 2018 and 2019 are pretty much the same program. I haven't done any render tests on 2019.

Camtasia 2018 only utilized 60% of my Nvidia graphics card for rendering proposes and it was in spurts, rarely hitting 60% and dropping to next to 0% at times.Fluctuating during the entire process.
The GPU is not the primary render engine for producing the video.It's a GTX 660.

This image is a screen shot I created using Camtasia 2018 and a 1920 x 1080 video.
 
If your 4 GPU's are recognized , The CPU will be a bottleneck. In my opinion.

The render is assisted by the GPU, with the  CPU running the show.
So even if you had 8 GPU's. They can't force the CPU to process the frames any faster. Leaving them with nothing to do.

I could be wrong? You could contact tech support. See if theres a way to increase  GPU usage and boost your render times.
I'd like to hear if it's possible as well.Let us know what they say if you contact them. We'd appreciate it.
