This Software is Utter Garbage

I've had Camtasia for years, and have used it to start up my YouTube channel, so I guess that in a twisted way, I should be thankful, but then I look back at all of the painful hours and days spent having to deal with the constant lagging, crashing, and glitches, and it makes me pretty pissed. I purchased this software years ago with the intention of producing films and videos, and it's been one hell of a bumpy ride. This software is obviously not intended for advanced use as it is incapable of smoothly editing larger videos. It freezes up, glitches and even occasionally crashes when performing the most basic functions like moving elements around, typing in a text box, and dragging clips to different areas of the timeline. Not to mention, it ends up rendering my videos with crappy quality despite the fact that I use pretty decent equipment and have a high-end pc. I've spent way too much time messing around with this software and dealing with TechSmith's bs tech support team than I should have, especially considering that this is more or less an established company. This is NOT a problem on my end, and never was, despite what tech support says. The problem is TechSmith's inability to develop a decent software that can smoothly edit a video longer than fifteen minutes without overheating my computer and crashing. And I know I'm not the only one experiencing these problems. People complain about this constantly, and what does TechSmith do? Nothing. Well, they technically do something... They charge a hundred bucks for a new version of Camtasia and spam my inbox telling to to upgrade to "Camtasia 2019". Yeah right, as if I'm gonna blow another hundred dollars on a "new" version of Camtasia. At that point I should just consider moving to Premier Pro and call it a day.
