Variable FPS is no good We Need Standard FPS for captured videos

Standard FPS is a must for external edit/export file integrity. Pros will never prefer size over frame rate which I see as your explanation of why you just don't duplicate frames where images don't change. I know this seems inefficient to keep all frames but it in fact is practical to do so for people needing a serious tool. Look into screenflow by Telestream for Mac for ideas. If you cant lock the frame rate at industry standards then this product wont be an ideal choice for Broadcast companies and similar. Make it standard frame rates so that further editing can be done with out complications. Do this an your product will be solid. Preferred FPS -- 29.97, 59.94, 24,30,60 -- All at 1080 or 2160. Consumers can utilize your current way of recording video on screen but pros need specificity for reasons you may not care to understand. Let me know what you can do.

All good points, except that video in SnagIt is not a Pro tool.  For that you need Camtasia.

Point me to the solution to my issue solution in your Camtasia manual. Or is this information not available? I did not see where it specified this but am happy to take another look. Further We don't need to edit the videos just capture them like many studios we have far more advanced editing platforms. As I understand it we aren't the first to post this issue but just take a moment and think about the request. Much thanks for any help you can provide.

Hi Thomas

Just to clarify.  I am not a TechSmith employee.  I am a long time SnagIt user; and this is a Users' Forum.  TechSmith employees do occasionally monitor and respond to  questions here but the vast majority of replies come from users.

If you have questions about the capabilities of Camtasia, your chances of an answer will be improved if you post to the Camtasia section by selecting the Camtasia checkbox when submitting a new thread. 

Unfortunately I do not use Camtasia so I am unable to answer your request.

You know that kinda gets me. Seen this more than once.

Why does Techsmith even have support if they just pass the buck off to the forum?

It's Like... I don't know I just work here. Try the forum.  Maybe someone there can help.

How do I get that job?

Oh wait... We have that job,  we're just not on the payroll.

Hi Dubie;

I think what may have been "missed in translation" is that TechSmith Support does not take feature suggestions from users; they offer technical support for issues at hand and if the user makes a suggestion for a change, Support points them to the forums. Technical Support is for technical support where the forums primarily focus, for now, on user-to-user support, product feedback, and feature suggestions.
