Learn tips and tricks to free up computer processing power, optimize Camtasia, and create a frustration-free editing experience.
- [Instructor] Even if you have a beefy computer,…you may run into some sluggishness…during your project editing.…Camtasia is a CPU-intensive program,…so you want to free up as much…processing power as possible for your PC.…Let's look at a few ideas.…First off, close out any apps you're not actively using.…Less apps running means more processing power…can be devoted to Camtasia.…Run some sort of de-junkifier to get rid of,…or at least turn off, unneeded background programs.…
I like CCleaner, it's free and it works great,…but use whatever works for you.…If you have a troublesome track,…say some 4K footage or a track with…a lot of animations and effects,…temporarily disable it while you edit…so you can focus on the other parts of your project.…Then enable it before you render.…Edit your project at the native video resolution.…What I mean by this is, if you have a 1920 by 1080 video,…set your project settings to 1920 by 1080.…
It takes more processing power for Camtasia…to downscale footage than to play it…at its native resolution.…
