time limit on camera record?

  • Updated 5 years ago
I've been bouncing between screen record and camera record all afternoon doing recordings of just a few minutes.  However, I just spent the last 40 minutes on one camera record, and when I clicked stop recording to save it, I got a message that said there MIGHT be another program open that is trying to use this file (bogus)...close that program and try saving again.  Needless to say, I clicked retry to no avail and am now rerecording the last 40 minutes.  Is there a limit to how long or how big a file size can be?

I'm actually getting this message on much shorter recordings now.  Like fewer than 3 minutes!  I just can't record this one particular section of my video now.  I have closed all other applications that were open except a word doc which is my script.  I've ended ended unnecessary tasks to free up memory.  I even ended the Windows Indexer and my antivirus search in case they were "looking at" my file.  HELP!!!

Hey Jessica,

What version of Camtasia are you using? What OS?
