Hello, I've got a big problem, recently i've recorded a video on minecraft with camtasia 9 in .trec but when I gone to look the recording file size in my documents I saw the enormous size of it. So I would like to know if you have an idea to reduce the file size (3 minutes = 700mo). Because I've searched to modified the video setting like ine camtasia 8 but we can't we can do it just with .avi (Excuse me for the english if is bad i'm french)

Edit the video by deleting what you don't want.  Specifically from the beginning and end.

Do any or all of the following.  Others will give you better advice.  Try different settings and, of course, use a small sampling for testing!

Reduce the screen resolution but keep the same ratio.  For example if you recorded at 1920x1080 then lower resolution to 960x540.

Unless you want perfect sound, lower the sound quality.  I have used as low as 64kbs (but typically used 96kbs for voice only)

Lower the video quality.  Even try 40%.  If you use bitrate try under 5000.

Multiple tests will show you which give you the smallest file while retaining the quality of other settings.
