TechSmith's Camtasia Studio & 60 FPS

  • Question
  • Updated 3 years ago

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Camtasia 60 fps


As part of our continuing conversation about the future roadmap of Camtasia, we want to let you know that 60 frames per second support for screen recording, timeline editing, and video production are a high priority on our backlog for a future release of Camtasia (after the next major release – not included in the next major).

Due to the increasing trend of devices supporting higher frame rate video recording, video hosting sites supporting higher frame rate videos, and higher frame rates in high motion screen recordings, TechSmith is committed to supporting all necessary aspects of “60 frames per second” functionality.

We don’t have a date for when this support will be released. At this time, we want to focus on getting the UI, performance, and workflows correct versus committing to a release date.

We would appreciate any feedback you care to leave within this post to let us know of your specific “60 frames per second” needs including general ideas, workflows, processes, hardware and software you use, etc.

Thanks so much.

Then I will probably look for another video editing software, since 60 fps is kind of important to me.

60fps is a bit late. especially with so many action camera footage nowadays capturing at 120 fps. I am certainly going to need to look at another editing software if this is not remedied soon. Sometime in the 2nd or 3rd quarter of 2016 would be nice!!

This is getting a bit beyond a joke now, you guys should have implemented 60 FPS a while ago, why is this taking so long? I only use Camtasia because of its simple interface, but I will be moving over to another video editor soon if this isnt sorted out soon.

Thats why i have moved to powerdirector. Quarter of the price, and much more functionality. I have been with Camtasia for several years, but now its outdated and overpriced.

I'm in the same boat. I use After Effects when I need 60 FPS or anything above the basics.

I use Camtasia only when I need to quickly get something out the door.

Hi Richard,

Would you mind giving us some insight about what types of projects you would find 60fps support useful for? What are you hoping you will be able to accomplish with this type of feature?

With the release of Camtasia 9, I am so aggravated to find out that we cannot render in 60fps!
