How to Make Blurry Videos Clear in Camtasia

Few things are worse than watching a blurry video when you know the quality of your viewing device is there, along with a high internet speed. When creating videos with any video production software, there are likely going to be problems along the way. A common issue is when videos come out blurry and you aren’t sure why. In this Camtasia video tutorial you will learn why your videos might be blurry and a few of the best methods on how to fix it.

Why is My Video Blurry? – TechSmith Tips


Everyone. And welcome to another episode of TechSmith tips today. I’m going to show you why your video is blurry. Now don’t get me wrong. There can be plenty reasons why your video may be blurry in this video. I’m going to cover a few things that may be the problem but also some terms that may help you understand what exactly is going on. Not postproduction begins in pre-production. So before you ever click the record button on your screen recorder or camera.

Ask yourself two questions. Where were my video end up being displayed. What resolution is my computer screen for. These are the first questions and ask yourself what ever you begin putting them in. I can’t stress this enough. You always need to be familiar with what resolution you are shooting with and delivering to you. But what is screen resolution exactly.

Screen resolution is the dimensions of your screen. Most commonly measured in pixels. High definition editing production mentions or KDP or 19:20 by tiny pixels in 720 12:30 by 720 pixels or whatever screen resolution having available. Always try and record in the highest resolution possible. We’ll get to the reason why it. For example here at Tech Smith you know we will most commonly be exporting videos to 720 for our YouTube channel website. So when we record our screen images are usually Teni. The reason we record in higher dimension is because when we add it it gives us flexibility in zoomie is dealing what his later. Life which becomes blurry when you zoom or scale is larger than what you originally recorded and. Depending on the content you can get away with scaling those in slightly larger numbers on the upper side.

Without viewers noticing. Just be aware. Nowadays there are ultra high definition monitors which are commonly referred to as for k k or even the retina display.

Unless you have a very powerful computer I’d recommend 10 ETP to get started because if you recorded these higher dimensions you’re going to end up with very large files. The slowing down your computer dramatically. The second set of terms I want to cover are vector vs raster raster are is made of certain number of pixels in vector art is based on mathematical calculations. So in other words raster art cannot be enlarged without losing quality and vector art does not use pixels and therefore is resolution independent.

If you are Achim taser sagot user you may have noticed that some of the call outs are in vector form. They can be scaled without losing quality.

There are stack in insites up there that often pull types for purchase. Finally the last time I want to cover this file format. This topic here. Very confusing very quickly. My main piece of advice is to try and use the data for file format. When ever possible. This ensures a high quality video and a low file size plus almost all web software applications except this as a universal format and play well on almost all devices. So when you can convert your footage to die before.

I know this is a lot to cover and can be confusing at first but once you start practicing and experimenting for yourself it’s going to start to make a lot of sense. Just remember. Record as big as possible. Then add it and smaller dimensions. Keep in mind waiting this video will be displayed as always. Feel free to comment and add your questions below. Thank you for your time.
