I am the only one at my school flipping---I got a Bamboo tablet and Camtasia recently--It works great on the computer I have at home--A lot slower at school--my assumption is that I have a better processor at home? Any way to adjust the school computer?

You are talking about Camtasia Studio recording performance on the two different computers, right? What exactly is occurring?

Overall, performance in general could be impacted by the difference in the computers themselves. Here are the recommended system requirements for running Camtasia Studio to the best of its ability:

It may be that your school PC is a bit out of date. This list gives you a way to check it out.

Thanks for using Camtasia Studio,

Recording speed is strongly affected by the processor. But there are other factors as well... dimensions of the capture area, disk I/O speed, how many other programs are open and competing for CPU and RAM, and even the content being captured.

If I had to guess, I'd say the Bamboo tablet is less powerful than your home PC.

One way to check your processor speed on your computer is to click on your Start button and just above it you can type in "dxdiag.exe".

It will run a little app on any windows computer to tell you what kind of processor you have, how much RAM, etc. Kinda cool. :)
