Zooming leaves media transparent...

I have been using Camtasia 9 for awhile now and had little to no problems... But just recently I have been getting this odd problem where when I zoom all the way in my Media files become somewhat transparent to the height of the Audio. It causes me grief trying to edit with it there and it's worse with groups, making them see-through and being able to see the audio files behind it mixing the waves up. I zoom in a lot to sync and fix problems and this makes it much harder to do that.

From the images above it appears they are all audio tracks can you verify that ? I see no video at all so could you be more specific and let us know what you are recording for example your screen/software/PowerPoint, etc. ? I have tried to recreate this issue with no luck as it did not happen when I tried this myself.

Sorry for your inconvenience so let us know so we can try to help more and get more feedback from other users also. If worse comes to worse you can contact TechSmith Support and find out if this is some kind of bug or not which I cannot say it is as I did not get the same results as you.

Thanks for posting and have a great day/night.

Cheers ~ Fred.

The bottom one is video the top two are audio.

I was recording a game with a recorder called Dxtory, but what I record with has nothing to do with the problem seeings how this problem happens with any and every file of audio which it didn't before.
It was fine a month or so ago and then started to do this with no warning of any sort. It doesn't affect the audio itself, but like I said it makes it hard to do stuff like precise fixing.

I've noticed that it doesn't happen all the time. I could be editing something and nothing is there, then go to edit something else and now it's there... Or even edit something and then save it, the very next day I open it the problem might or might not be there. So it's not consistent, but it does happen more then it doesn't.

There isn't much else to say other then what has already been said. I didn't change any settings, nor do I do anything different from where the problem started, so I really don't know why, where, what or how it happens.

Thank you for your time.
