the sound is chopping

I have problems. Played my meditation and it sounds nice. When I then render it (done 4 times now), it gets hacked in the meditation at just the same place every time. How can it be so when it sounds good before?

I presume by hacked you mean that the sounds is messed up?  And that inside Camtasia, it sounds good, but when you render it, it always sounds bad at there same place? 

I'm going to take a wild guess, (so only use my advise if you don't get some other feedback) that there is something at that place in the video where it gets "hacked", maybe a change to a different video, some text, transitions or objects at that point on your timeline.  I would try saving the project under a different name and simplify it by removing everything except the video and audio.  Please remember, this is a wild guess without seeing your project.  I hope someone comes up with something really good for you!

Thanks for your reply. Yes, you are right that I mean. I use translate;) No, there is nothing else that disturbs, has checked it now. so I do not understand why it is right there.

Do you have just one audio and one video (on two tracks) for this project?

No, but there is no brake right there, so how can it messed up just there?

Is it an mp3 file? Because unfortunately, Camtasia is notorious for having difficulty with MP3 files. It's the variable bit rate the trips them up primarily. But the reason why is really not that important.
The best solution is to convert that file to a.wav file. This tends to alleviate all audio rendering and playback problems. This is a problem that is existed for years and why they have never been able to correct it I cannot tell you.
The best audio settings to use are as follows. I created this image in Photoshop for Camtasia 8 at least five years ago. That should give you some indication as to how important it is to convert MP3s to this format.


So hopefully after all that information. Were actually talking about an MP3 file.

There is an online audio converter if you need one.https://audio.online-convert.com/convert-to-wav

Sounds like Joe may have a better way to approach than me.  I was really "shooting in the dark," as we say here in the US.

I normally record all my stuff (voice, music) in wave format, but then export to mp3.  I'm going to try not exporting to mp3 anymore and just use the wave file.  I was afraid it would make the video too big, but it would be worth the cost if the sound is smoother.  

Thanks for the post and Joe for the good tip.
