I made an intro video for my school approx. 14 minutes long.
So far I have tried 14 times and almost everytime I tried to produce it it crashed somewhere around 25,4%
It finished once.. but I had to edit some things and ever since camtasia has not been able to finish the production.
Incase it is important these are my specs:
Camtasia 30 day trial
Core I7 3630QM 2,4ghz
Nivida Gefore GT 650M 2gb video card.
Can anyone help me out please?
Thanks in advance.
Edit: I tried making it in different qualities too, mp4 with video player up to 480P and 720P.
I even tried producing it with custom settings.
I also tried updating camtasia, and updating xvid as windows suggested.. but nothing
We want to thank you for your patience while we worked to improve Camtasia. Camtasia 9 is a 64 bit application and that has substantially helped us to improve performance, stability, the ability to work with more complex projects, and allows Camtasia to take advantage of more resources if you have a more powerful machine. Most of these benefits will still only be noticeable on stronger machines (see our system requirements). Video editing and rendering is a very computationally intensive process unfortunately.
We have found having access to more computer resources has resolved many of the issues we saw in version 8.x, especially when working with large video files. We don't expect this to fix codec issues, but if the productions were failing due to file becoming too large, being a 64 bit application has helped in a lot of those cases. If you're running 64-bit Windows, you can download the free trial here.

Apologies for the inconvenience and the wait,
Senior Software Engineer, Camtasia Windows
I'm working with mp4, and the videos are only a few minutes long. My C drive where I'm rendering has plenty of space, and it's locally. I'm using Camtasia 9 purchased. I get no errors of "stopped working" or anything else, it simply freezes. And I have... a VERY POWERFUL machine (a gaming rig).
Also, the entire project gets deleted and I had to recreate the project again. To avoid this, I had to close Camtasia, make sure I saw the project in the folder, opened it again, and tried to render. It crashed, but the project was not deleted.
I also was having huge problems with Camtasia crashing while rendering. I ended up narrowing down all clips and annotations to find the problem. The problem was happening with annotations that had zoom effects on them... I removed the zoom effect and BOOM!! Problem Solved.
When I move the files to my older and poorer PC, it produces fine but won't produce on my core i7 8gb ram PC and I remember it worked on this new PC when I was running windows 7 but started when I upgraded to windows 10.
