i am experiencing lower export performance compared to the older Camtasia for Mac. It seems like there might be some optimization issues considering the newly added 64bit support. 

I am currently exporting a 1 hour long video that would normally have taken Camtasia for Mac roughly 25 mins has just now reached 65% on the new Camtasia 3.

Activity monitor shows:
Camtasia 3 15% CPU and less than 300MB RAM use
CLExporter 500% CPU and roughly 300MB RAM use

I am exporting to Relay self hosted. Everything is up to date including OS at 10.12.1

Computer specs:

Mac Pro (Late 2013)
Intel Xeon E5 6-core
AMD FirePro D500

Data stored on thunderbolt RAID.

just wanted to share and see if anyone is seeing slow export times on fast computers

I'm getting substantially faster render times on Camtasia 3 vs Camtasia 2 for Mac. I render to local files.
