Hi. I just started using the latest version of Camtasia to record gameplay with a face cam. It was working fine when I was recording google chrome but when I try to record minecraft gameplay the face cam works but when looking back to edit minecraft is just frozen on the loading screen. I can hear the minecraft but the picture freezes after three seconds.

Is Minecraft set to play in fullscreen mode?

Camtasia cannot record games in full screen mode.You need to record in Windowed mode.

Camtasia is not capable of recording a full screen application unless it is in Windowed-Fullscreen. They refuse to fix this.

It's not actually broken. It's the way the recorder functions. Which is less than ideal and I don't know why they designed it that way?

Corel Video Studio's screen recorder is the same way.

If TechSmith ever makes the recorder capable of recording at 60fps. And they don't address windowed mode. I think 60fps will be a flop with gamers. I know I wouldn't want to play in windowed mode so I could record using Camtasia.
