I have a 2018 Macbook Pro with Camtasia 2019 installed. Rendering a 35 minute 4K video. Looking at Activity Monitor, Camtasia is taking 4.3% of CPU, 5.52GB Ram.  Just 4.3% CPU with 90% of my CPU idle looks like Camtasia is not taking advantage of as much CPU as it can to render the video.    Why cannot Camtasia thrash the CPU to get the job done quicker?

Same issues on my 2019 MBP Pro, with i9, 32 GB of RAM, and upgraded Vega GPU. If you run a program like MenuStats, you can see poor CPU utilization, and iStats shows poor dedicated GPU utilization. Product Management, you need to fix this.

Matter of fact, rendering a client file on Camtasia 2019 with Windows Insider 18392 build, on a 9900k, 128GB of fast RAM, RTX2060 card, and I am falling asleep watching the slooow progress. No matter what I do, this program gets slower, while my machines and DaVinci Resolve get faster.

This used to be my favorite editor. Tiny, paid upgrades and slow performance are pushing me away.
