NEED 64bit version or won't be upgrading

The limited memory capacity for a 32bit app is killing me, over here!!! I've been fighting tooth and nail trying to get a training video done and Camtasia Studio has been crashing left and right. To try and get around it, I'm having to do all kinds of time consuming and frustrating work-arounds.

I have had problems of this sort many times in the past. It's why I have to keep my training videos below 10-15min. I make a lot of edits, and Camtasia starts to really bug out when I get to a certain threshold. This 32bit limitation was a problem 10yrs ago, and here we are in 2016 STILL stuck on outdated, 1990's technology.

This was the last straw for me. I'm going back to editing in Adobe Premiere Pro, where I don't have to worry about this crap, and can make as many edits as I need. I have 32GB of RAM and can only use 4GB of it with Camtasia Studio. It's ridiculous. Won't be upgrading unless there is a 64bit version that helps alleviate these constant problems.
