There is problems with bitrate kbps inside Camtasia video setting results (production wizard) before file
production I choice 16701 kbps bitrate but inside Windows for ready file
after production for all completed files inside Windows properties there is complete other result only 9947 kbps. Also other completed video file inside Windows properties  is only 2831 kbps but should be 16701 kbps there is no 16701 kbps bitrate for completed files (Camtasia production results is 16701 kbps bitrate. Last 6 month there is not anymore 16701 kbps correct bitrate kbps results. When you check file (right mouse click and file properties) There is no more correct bitrate result for ready files after production. When production is completed in Camtasia they show always 16701 kbs bitrate but in Windows 10 there is completed other kbps bitrate inside video file properties there is much much less kbps completed other results 3x 4x 6x less kbps bitrate. Only sound kbps bitrate is always correct but video results bitrate kbps is wrong. That problem start exist only 9 month ago before all files looks like pretty correct 16468 kbps bitrate for 16039. I reinstall Camtasia problem is still actual and not resolved. Now for all completed video files inside Windows properties bitrate is 3x 4x 6x less than 16701 kbps shown in Camtasia. Camtasia shown kbps wrong. How to resolve this problem?

Camtasia renders with a variable bit rate.
The bit rate setting is a limitation. Not a constant bit rate setting. You can set to 20,000  and get the same results.

You can render using a higher Quality setting to increase bit rate. But this to has its limitations.

Very strange when for 16701 kbps is only 2831 kbps bitrate 5x less than expected but for other video files 1 year ago was  about 16444 kbps I think in logical thinking bitrate should be about 16000 not less bitrate. Kbps should stay in that direction but not 5x 6x less, it is logical thinking and software quality.

Its a maximum bit rate setting. If you set it to 1000 kbps. The video would render around 1000 kbps.

It has to do with content and size of the video.
If you were working on a 4K video with a lot of color and activity. The bit rate might reach 1644 kbps.
A similar video at 1280 x 720 would render at a much lower bit rate.

You can chose the 100% Quality setting.
Or the maximum bit rate setting or 20,000.

Camtasia will render at the maximum bit rate of its choosing. Unless you've set the rate lower than Camtasia would have.

My content is high bitrare kbps video files from video camera all video files is higher than 22158 kbps and I need high quality HD video with good kbps bitrate. I choice 16701 kbps in Camtasia always not less than 16701 kbps and it should stay always in that direction for ready completed files 16701 kbps but not 2831 kbps what is 6x less (Why Camtasia show wrong completed results?). Why there is such difference? One file is with high bitrate 16335 kbps other file is with low bitrate 2831 kbps or less but Camtasia always telling when bitrate is 16701 kbps but its wrong the bitrate is much lower kbps 2831. Source files in video camera I have always high bitrate kbps more than 22158 kbps and I need that bitrate because in Camtasia options production wizard I have selected High quality bitrate more than 16701 kbps but not 2831 kbps whats is 6x less than other completed files. Each time new bitrate? Like I told bitrate should stay around 16701 kbps but not 6x less. It is logical thinking and options what I choice inside Camtasia high kbps bitrate, bitrate cannot drop 6x less if my Camtasia settings is 16701 kbps or more 20000 kbps. It should stay always around 16701 kbps or 20000 kbps It is my choice. Why Camtasia lie inside production wizard after completed rendering? There is no 16701 kbps bitrate but much much lower 2831 kbps, low quality video.
