When i moved on over to Adobe, just for that little while, i discovered how adobe can rendere more than over 6 or more (depending the pc's processing power) video projects all at once. So it would be totes awesome if the Camtasia team were to implement a feature sucha s that!

Put all you videos on the timelines in Camtasia.

Then add a "Marker" at the beginning of each video.

Click Images to Enlarge:



Then do a "Custom Production" with No Controller
and under the "Video Settings Tab" checkmark "Multiple files based on markers"



Then finish the rest of the render options and produce.

Camtasia will create a separate video for each marker.

Hi Dubie! I always jump in on questions like this, because as a decade long Camtasia owner, and as someone who frequently recommends Camtasia as a user friendly, affordable tool, I think it is important to point out the need for Camtasia NOT to be more like Premiere. Premiere Pro is a dedicated video editing program with a pretty steep learning curve and price that reflects its full range of capabilities. Camtasia is an affordable, user friendly screen recording program with a nice variety of video editing capabilities. Many of us use Camtasia and Premiere, each being appropriate for certain tasks. (You can’t screen record with Premiere, remember) The majority of my Camtasia using peers don’t have the computer specs, tech savvy, or need for anything as robust as Premiere. Please consider that there is a great need for Camtasia to remain simple, affordable, and mid-range specs friendly. For those of us needing more, Camtasia and Premiere do fit very nicely together in an advanced workflow. Have a happy and creative New Year!

I often wonder who coined that term "steep learning curve"? Because when you pick it apart, it actually conveys the opposite of what the writer intended. Sure, by saying "steep learning curve" what is meant is that it isn't easy to learn. It takes time. Patience. Effort. But when you ponder that, wouldn't that make for a much flatter curve? Whereas a steep curve should indicate you ramp up very quickly. You learn it fast!

Just pondering words... Rick :)

Are you a flat-lander?LOL

It's very difficult to climb a steep hill.Once you reach the crest it becomes easier to reach the top.
Ponder that.

I totally agree susannemistric that Camtasia should not be like Premier or Final Cut etc.

There are many posts here of those wanting the moon from Camtasia and most I hope never happen.

I would like to see some much needed improvements of the functions that are in Camtasia already
and admit there are some functions that would be nice to be added just to round out or enhance Camtasia
but they are few.

I try as with most of my posts,  to just offer a method that can be achieved in Camtasia if possible or a
possible "workaround" (cringe)

Best of the New Year too you!!

Adobe Premiere doesn't render multiple projects simultaneously.

What you do is add multiple project to  Adobe's Media Encoder and it renders them one at a time while you work on other projects.
It's best to run Media Encoder at night when your not editing so all system resources are available for editing.

you can do what Joe says [above] in Camtasia by using Batch Production; and there is no need to build out a single large project

Good point. I forgot about batch production as a option also.
