When your done editing do a Custom Production and when you get to the player options under the Video Settings tab type in 24 in the frame rate field

Here is the info of a test video I did

Hi Dubie,
Thank you for your reply, I want a video file with 23.98 fps not 24 fps, there are few videos which are 23.98 fps. Do you have any idea how we get 23.98 fps files ?

Camtasia won't get that precise. At least that I can determine

I can understand why you would want 23.98 because of timecode/sync.

Wish I had a better answer :(

Its okay Dubie, thank you for your kind reply. I wish Camtasia will update to have an option to export videos to 23.98 fps.

Is this actually a separate standard from 24 fps? We're talking a difference of 0.02 fps, which seems ludicrous.

Here's what you need to understand. It's important.

Camtasia doesn't handle most video that isn’t 30 fps properly in the first place.

 Camtasia 8 and 9 converts video to 30 fps as soon as you place it on the timeline.

Camtasia 2018, can handle 60fps video natively. If you chose the 60fps setting. Other than that. Same story as with version 8 and 9. Other media becomes 30fps.

So, 24 or 25 fps footage picks up additional “Repeat” frames. Or doubles up frames if you will.

And when you render/produce these videos to 24 or 25 fps. These Repeat/Doubled up frames don’t go away. They might not jump out at you but they exist.

I took a 25fps Amy Winehouse music video.

The repeated frames created on Camtasia’s timeline for the first 2 seconds were 1, 6, 13, 19, 25, 1:01, 1:07, 1:13, 1:19 and 1:25.

I rendered the first 2 seconds of video.

I placed that video in Premier Pro. It respects frame rates. I created a 25 fps sequence with the Camtasia rendered video.

Camtasia’s 25 fps video had repeated frames at 1, 6, 11, 16, 21, 1:01, 1:06, 1:10, 1:16 and 1:21. 

I placed markers at all the repeated frames.

So here's the reality, 5 frames are repeated every second. And 5 original fps were  dropped and tossed away during production by Camtasia.To maintain 25fps.

So,It doesn’t matter what production frame rate you chose.

Odds are, you’re better off rendering at 30fps and that’s my recommendation.WHY???


A few rapid repeated frames at 30fps is better than

>>>Slower Repeated frames Coupled with Missing Frames at 24fps with regards to overall smoothness.

Dropped frames containing movement are more likely to produce a jittery effect than the repeated frames.In "Most cases" {in my opinion}.

However, the source media will matter and dictate the final outcome.
