I'm overlaying a second audio track to an existing low resolution video (a drumless track) in Camtasia 8.6

Having been doing it for years with no issue but in the last month or so I've been getting this odd problem.

When i play from any point in the track (except the start) the audio matches up perfectly, but when I drag the playhead right back to zero - there is a lag on one of the tracks and the audio doesn't match up.

Have re-installed Camtasia and tried on a faster desktop (using laptop) and problem remains.

Tried to open the project on Camtasia 2019 demo and video doesn't appear at all (working with tech support on that currently)

Any suggestions - need the track done in a few days

Thanks in advance

Audio anomalies like that usually occur with variable bit mp3's.

Camtasia 8's favorite audio codec is.............................


If the audio isn't of that flavor. If you convert the audio to it. That should alleviate the problem.
