Screen refresh of audio waveforms slow

I hadn't used Camtasia in a while, but recently opened it to edit a project and it asked me to update. I now have version 2018.0.0. (Build 3358)

I noticed a big change in the speed of the refreshing of the audio waveforms. But it is constantly refreshing, but slowly, with a delay of 1-3 seconds. It is frustrating because I have to constantly stop play in order to get the waveforms to refresh.

When editing, this is time consuming. Not sure what changed in this version.

Is anyone else having this issue?

Hi Dave;

What version of Windows are you running? Does it happen to all waveforms, or just waveforms for non-TREC files (WAV, MP3, MP4, etc.)?

I'd recommend updating Camtasia first (go to Help - Check for Updates in Camtasia), and if that does not work, please open Camtasia and go to Edit - Preferences - Advanced and set hardware acceleration to "Use Software-only mode" then restart Camtasia (required) to see if that helps.
