(This idea comes what what we’ve heard here in this community as well as from other customer feedback methods we utilize. The feedback we gather here will help us gauge how well it fits our users’ needs. Please let us know what you think)

The Problem:

When I add behaviors or animations, the video doesn’t play back smoothly, and I’m not confident the resulting video will be smooth. 

Potential Solution:

Improve the smoothness / power of the editor so that animations are rendered smoothly, so that what I see in the preview window will be what I get when I produce

We're currently evaluating render preview window performance. Camtasia 2018 made some adjustments pushing toward using GPU based rendering to improve performance. Unfortunately, not all machines / GPUs are created equal, so this failed to have the overall impact we had hoped for.

We're continuing to look at how we could hand preview performance. If you continue to experience issues please contact our support staff and let us know as many details about your experience as possible.
