Video production runs out of memory

Hello,

I have been working on several videos in Camtasia Studio 7 and I have confronted and issue several times. When you start producing the videos, the resources (memory) allocated to the compilation is not free when the video is finished. This becomes an issue when you are producing more than one video because the computer starts to get slower to the point where it runs out of memory.

Thanks,

Hi Christian,

Couple questions --

Does the memory usage drop when you restart Camtasia Studio? Are you able to make multiple productions if you restart CS in between?

Also, the suggestions mentioned in the following article might help, if you haven't tried them already: http://techsmith.custhelp.com/app/ans...

Hello,

Great news! We've just released Camtasia Studio 8, which we've redesigned from the ground up for better stability and performance. We think there's a good possibility that this particular issue has been resolved in the latest version.

Part of the re-write includes a brand-new rendering engine that takes advantage of GPU acceleration for fast decoding and rendering. It has been designed to be much more robust than in previous versions of Camtasia Studio.

You can download a free, fully-functional 30-day trial of Camtasia Studio 8 here: http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia-wha.... There's no need to remake the project files -- Camtasia Studio 8 will upgrade projects from version 6 or later.

Thank you again for your feedback!

It's a living nightmare to try and produce a one hour video with Camtasia 8.6 crashing every 3 minutes.  I suggest you get to root cause.

these issues can have many causes; perhaps provide details about the project so we might try and assist
