      Video and audio don't appear to be synced.


      You can notice a little jump in the video right at about 21 seconds in that beings the desync.

      Thanks Merick! Good catch. I think I found a Camtasia bug, I have a theory about what happened here.


      I'm exporting again now but I spot checked the video and it appears to only be off by a second or two so it should still functionally all be accurate in the meantime.

      Nope, not a Camtasia bug - apparently this is an error that Windows Live Movie Maker introduced when I first converted the file. Sad


      It's going to be way too much work to fix it at this point since it's embedded within the larger project, but since it's only a lip sync issue the video should still work ok.

      You're right, I also think that it's only a file problem and not a camtasia bug.  Much better if you could replace it with a better version.  Otherwise, your statement in here is enough to prove that camtasia is working well as expected.

      Done! New version uploaded, I pulled out my "talking head" after the sync issue. Sorry for those of you who were looking forward to seeing my smiling mug for 10 minutes, you can always catch me on This Week on Channel 9 instead. Wink

      Why don't all the 10-4 shows have got tag "10-4" assigned? It makes searching them more difficult.
