Resolving the Camtasia-WMV Import Problem in Less Than a Minute

As a user of Camtasia Video Modifying Software application I have often times encountered a problem that cost me great deals of time. I expect if I 'd made the effort to go to the TechSmith understanding base or possibly searched for a service online I might have discovered a response to my issue immediately. Truth of the matter, I took neither of those choices. We'll simply chalk it as much as the male thing that belongs to not stopping and requesting instructions. I did create a work around technique to obtain past the problem however that technique is far from suitable.

I have no idea the number of individuals modify WMV files with Camtasia; I on event have the calling to do so. The majority of the time I handle the Camtasia file understood as.camrec or AVI files as the input source for a video job. These 2 kinds of input files work terrific in Camtasia and never ever trigger a problem. It's the WMV file type that has an incompatibility problem with Camtasia Studio.

The problem I'm describing happens when importing a WMV file that triggers the following caution message:

C:/ bla/bla/blablabla/ xx-xx-xxxx-xx. wvm has an unusual script stream which might trigger production issues.

For me there is no "might" about it, there is a production issue as well as in some cases a modifying issue. Exactly what I utilize to do to resolve this problem was utilize the Camtasia screen recorder to re-record the WMV video to the.camrec format. As you can picture this was incredibly time consuming and a gigantic wild-goose chase. You see there is another declaration in the mistake message that would have conserved me great deals of time if just I had actually acted upon it. It sounds rather made complex so I chose to discover another service-- my error.

"For finest outcomes, you might utilize the Windows Media File Editor to move this video's script stream to its header prior to importing into Camtasia Studio."

After a little poking around just recently, I discovered the Windows Media File editor on my PC. With a bit more poking around in the WMFE I had the ability to discover a one click command that resolved the issue. Under the File tab in the upper tool bar is a choice to "Move Scripts to Header ...". Needless to state I'm kicking myself for not a making the effort to take the action the caution message offers. Ideally this has actually not occurred to you.

Here's the actions to fix this problem in less than a minute.

- Open the Windows Media File Editor. In Windows 7 and Vista I discovered it in Start - All Programs-- Windows Media/Utilities/Windows Media File Editor.- Under the File tab, click Open to pack your WMV file.

- Once the file is open return to the File tab. Click the Move Scripts to Header ... choice.

- Once again under the Files tab, click the Save and Index ... choice.

Now all that's delegated do is to import the WMV into Camtasia to finish your job.

| I expect if I 'd taken the time to go to the TechSmith understanding base or possibly looked for a service online I might have discovered a response to my issue right away. Many of the time I deal with the Camtasia file understood as.camrec or AVI files as the input source for a video job. As you can picture this was incredibly time consuming and a gigantic waste of time.
