Possible to split up camrec file?

When trying to produce my project, the progress bar stays at 0,0% and eventually freezes. I think this is due to the file size of 1,4GB of one of the camrec files and I guess Camtasia can't handle this size.
Is there any way to split up the camrec file into two smaller parts? Just splitting sections in the project doesn't help, since it doesn't actually split the file itself.
Thank you

Hi Max,

We’ve vastly improved performance in the latest version of Camtasia Studio (version 8.0.0) that should be able to handle a production of that size without having to split up the production files.

In regards to your question about splitting the camrec into smaller parts to help with production we do have an option called “Producing Multiple Files Based on Markers” which I believe is what you’re looking for.

Here’s a small walkthrough of how you would go about doing this:

  1. Add markers to your timeline where you would like split the project up.

  2. When producing your video choose the custom production settings path.

  3. From there choose the recommended mp4 path.

  4. This is where it is slightly different depending on what version you are using:

  5. -- In Camtasia Studio 8, you will click the Video settings tab and enable Multiple Files Based on Markers

  6. -- In Camtasia Studio 7.1.1 you will have to enable Table of Contents, then click the Flash Options

a) ---In the Flash Options Dialogue, click the Table of Contents Tab

b) --- Enable Produce multiple files based on markers

This option will allow you to produce smaller files but the end result will still be one video with a table of contents.

Camtasia Studio 8 should be able to resolve your issue without having to produce multiple files. To try out a complete version of Camtasia Studio 8, free for 30 days, please head over here: http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia-whats-new.html
