I am using camtasia 8 on amazon rdp windows server 2016 R2 1 gb ram 1 core proccessor.
The problem is when I render a video its going well but after 9% or 10% it becomes too slow even snail is much faster.I rendered 1 hour 480p video which takes a weak to finish rendering. I have restarted rdp many times and using different clips but the performance is still same

I am surprised it even worked. You would need an Enterprise Internet connection.
The biggest barrier is probably the uploading bottleneck. If you are going to edit online and truly take advantage of using multiple computers to speed rendering, then your source material needs to be uploaded into the cloud. Due to the large file sizes created by pro video codecs, upload times could be prohibitive for all but the simplest of projects. Ingesting footage already takes long enough on a local computer without having to wait for hours for it to upload and process.

watch Task manager during the production process

I too am experiencing very slow production times, especially when compared to same project produced by CS8

in my case, I've found that CS9's CPU usage during a production will start off at a high rate, like 90%, but after a while, the CPU utilization drops way off to maybe 25%

this behavior occurres in almost every production; it also can be triggered by browsing a news web site [like CNBC, CNN] that serves up a lot if embedded ads; streaming some types of content [like Comcast TV] also kills off CS9 CPU usage; apparently, CS9 CPU utilization is being adversely affected by certain types of other processes.   But streaming Netflix does not  seem to be a problem?

This slowdown in production was not the case with CS8

I've filed bug reports and hopefully it will be addressed

My only viable workaround is to essentially do nothing else with the PC while producing CS9 videos

CS9 productions also seem to be working my CPU very hard, as my laptop now runs very hot during productions, so much so that I now have to use a external fan to blow across the laptop to try and keep it somewhat cool
