Is 64 Bit coming in any of our futures

  • Updated 5 years ago
Most computers nowadays are 64 bit The old 32 bit we can ascribe to old gaslight days perhaps.

And most pro video programs have 64 bit as standard, 32 bit is for older out of date computers

With large modern video files 64 bit can utilise the processing power of our computers, Camtasia can't do that hence the poor quality and poor rendering many are complaining about.

Is anybody going to actually to update Camtasia to be able to utilise the power of current day 64 bit computing?

We are currently working on a 64 bit version of Camtasia Studio. While I can tell you this is in the works, I cannot say when that release will be out since I do not know.

I know this doesn't help you out right now, but, hopefully knowing it is coming soon ( not this year) might help a bit.

Thank you for using Camtasia.

I don't think so.

If you are experiencing crashing, we recommend you go directly
over to our Technical Support site and open a ticket. We don't have the
tools in this forum to assess or diagnose your PC system to see what
might be causing this issue.

The problem could be antivirus
software running in the background, encryption software blocking a file
from running, a bad installation, missing media files, operating system
updates, missing drivers, etc. and technical support is equipped to help
you sort that out. Those of us working in this forum are not able to
run necessary diagnostics or analyze project files for errors.

TechSmith technical support is a free service and you can submit a ticket here:

Well, I think it's better than being left in the dark. 64 bit is coming is something to hold on to if nothing else.
