Unfortunately there isn't any option I'm aware of to do that.
I suppose you might use something like Macro Express to create a macro that would stop the recording and save it in those intervals, but you would also likely miss bits of whatever you were recording while those processes were occurring.

If that's what they want, why should you get bent out of shape over it?
Camtasia is perfectly capable of recording for 12 hours straight.As long as you have the disk space.
If they want a 12 hour test, I say test away. Let them buy you a Bigger Badder Computer while their at it.
Do you have a computer with a NVidia GeForce graphics card by any chance?
Shadow play is a program that runs on most of them. NVidia GeForce Experience to be exact.
It records the screen, game play, etc. You control the quality settings. Bit rate 10 to 50 mbps , Frame rate 30 or 60 fps. Plus it's a free recorder.
It also records on the fly. You start and stop recording with a keyboard short cut.
I was playing around. I can stop and save a recording. Plus, Start a new one in about 1⁄2 a second.1 second tops.
I watched the files being created in the save folder.
Technically, you could do a quick save and start. Miss next to nothing. For what your doing, it sound like it wouldn't matter. At 10mbps the video looks pretty darn sharp as well.
The graphics card does all the recording. No strain on the CPU, you can actually keep using the computer as if it isn't even recording.If you have another monitor.
The graphics card is pretty well tied up for other functions. But the CPU is ready to go.
I'm adding a screen shot showing the cards that are supported. System requirements. If your computer doesn't have one your out of luck.
However, down the road someone else might see this thread. Shadow play has been available for 3 or 4 years now. So it's known to a lot of people.
No frills, just a decent recorder.Geared for gamers and streaming Head to Head video game play.
