Have you look at Bill Hunt's suggestions for working with Camtasia video in the Premiere Elements Tips & Tricks forum (located by clicking the link to the right on our main forum page)?

Here is the link to that ARTICLE.
Most of the material in that article comes from Jeff Bellune, who creates a lot of tutorials with Camtasia, though he uses PrPro for the editing. For what he's doing, and what he outlines, PrE will do almost everything, with one exception - the Custom Frame Size of the Project's Preset. However, with the 1080, you should find just what you need in PrE.
Hope that helps, and good luck,
Thanks for the links. They will be quite helpful and should help me improve the final output of my screencasts and the tips for codec settings etc when capturing will be very good. However most of the information linked is dealing with making the final export from PrE have the highest quality possible. My problem relates to how the captured video looks in PrE once imported. The video is jumpy and distorted and makes it very difficult to edit...I don't even get to the export settings before I give up.
I will make the changes to the capture codecs etc and see if that helps. Will report back what I find.
Have you had any success figuring this out? I am having the exact same problem and this is the first instance I've been able to find anywhere of someone else having the same "breakup and distortion (images from one frame "leaking into other frames")"
SO frustrated and need to find an answer! I already have all the software, so it's not a decision of to buy or not to buy...
Welcome to the forum.
Did the Camtasia link that I provided help in any way?
Yes I did. Capture to AVI or camrec with camtasia, import into camtasia studio and encode to AVI ( no need to do anything else). Import to elements.
