Camtasia (Windows): Capture Frame Rate and System Performance

Problem

How can I get the best capture frame rate while recording in Camtasia?

Solution

Basic Tips to Improve Recording Performance

The frame rate is the number of frames captured per second. By default, the Camtasia Recorder captures video in 30 FPS. The recorder will drop frames if the computer becomes overburdened and cannot keep up. There are some options to improve the recording performance:

  • Record a small, single screen. Recording full screen is harder than recording a single screen.
  • Close applications you don’t need.
  • Change the Power Options to High Performance. Some users have reported that changing the power option resulted in being able to record with better performance.
