Well, I may have found a combination that works.
I used Camtasia's own codec, TSSC, and then applied the Interlace Consecutive Frams processing option.
I'll try it with another clip to see if this is a solution or just a fluke.

I don't know if this will help you or not, but I remember a few years ago working on files from Camtasia that were flickering in PPro CS3. What I found is that if I put the Camtasia files in AE, and then created a new DV AVI file, it reduced a lot of the flicker...I'm not sure why, or if this would work in CS5, but I remember having to do it in CS3. Might be worth a try if you can't get anything else to work.
Nevermind, I still got the flicker with the TSSC codec and Field Processing.
I'll try converting to a new DV AVI like you suggested. Thanks.
I use Lagarith and drop the avi in a non field sequence.
If i drop the avi in an interlaced sequence I get the flickering.
Thanks Eric, your answer led me to converting the Camtasia AVI in Adobe Media Encoder. It took a few times, but here are the settings that worked best:
I converted the AVI to Uncompressed Microsoft AVI
At first I thought Frame Blending was the key to removing the flicker, but after doing a few more tests, the flicker is gone with the above settings with or without Frame Blending.
This works on 15fps and 30fps Camtasia Uncompressed AVI clips.
Thanks Ann for your response, too. I neglected to mention my sequence is interlaced because I also have 60i footage in there as well. But dropping Camtasia video in a non field sequence would make sense, and would probably work. Thanks.
Great! Glad you got it worked out. I remember it driving me nuts until I nailed it.
