Transition Lag in Preview Screen

  • Updated 2 months ago
In Camtasia 2020, when the Preview screen plays transitions connecting 2 different clips, it lags ONLY on the Transitions why?

This is the only part I am having an issue with. The video clips play fine other than what I have said above. My PC specs are not the issue, I am certain of this.

You can try disabling your graphics card, see if that helps.
Transitions require some horsepower to play smoothly. Do you mind posting your specs?
Do you run a discrete graphics card?

I really don't think it's my specs since I already said it's the only thing with the software I'm having issues with but here they are:

Intel i7-8700k
16GB RAM
RTX 2080 graphics card.

Also I have no idea how you would disable a graphics card and it doesn't sound like something I would want to do.

Is there anything in the software itself that can fix this?

Otherwise I would still be using Camtasia Studio 8 if it didn't crash when rendering.

Those are nice specs.
Better than mine.
I don't encounter transition playback problems unless I've got effects applied to the clips.
Standard transitions playback smoothly.

You can disable the graphics card as a test. See if its creating a problem.



If it is, check it for updates.

Either way, you eliminate it as suspect.

I was talking about the transitions. Also I tried what you suggested before posting my issue and unfortunatly, that didn't work.
