Camtasia doesn't detect multichannel audio from Fraps recordings... ( was working, but now it doesn't)
If I just set my Fraps settings to stereo and record a game the audio will show up from the recording in Camtasia, but when multichannel is set on no audio shows up... This is really really frustrating I want to upload some game footage to youtube but I can't because I will not have the games audio...

any help?

Hi Alan,

I think technically we don't support more than 2 channels in audio clips. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. But we only export mono or stereo, so either way, you're going to get audio that has been mixed down. So, in the future, setting Fraps to stereo is a good choice.

If you already have a clip with multi-channel that you need produced, you may want to use a converter to squash the audio down to 2 channels. The best way would be to find a program that can do "pass-through" conversion that will leave the video untouched. Alternatively, you could make a copy of the clip and convert it to audio only. Then you can bring the video into Camtasia Studio, separate/remove the audio, and then bring the converted audio-only clip in under it.

I know that's a little annoying and it would be better for us to just handle multi-channel for you, but that should at least get you producing to youtube.
