No lag on recording, much lag in video on playback.

I have Camtasia 7. Is there any way I can stop it from lagging on video playback? I have vidx as the codec, since DivX didn't work for me either. I've set the FPS to 120, 60, 50, but it never seems to change the performance of the playback video. I have windows 7 basic theme, with aero unchecked. I'm recording in windowed mode. I'm trying to record a game, which runs at 40-60 frames, even while recording. I spent quite a bit of time last night looking at videos trying to fix the problem myself, but to no avail. Thanks for your help!

Hey Rawnuld,

You are seeing the lag inside Camtasia Studio when playing it back? Have you tried producing it out locally, and seeing if it lags then?

Other options are to run it through Handbrake, convert it, than drag it back into the timeline, and seeing if that takes care of it.

Another option is to try the free, 30 day trial of Camtasia 8, and seeing if that solves the issue. We made many, many improvements regarding performance between 7 and 8. You can try the free trial here:

Let me know if any of these options work for you!
