I make 12 hour long videos on youtube. It's usually the sound of rain or crashing waves. Anyways, sometimes I have video of rain or crashing waves, other times I use a photograph and I add audio via an audio editing program like camtasia studio 8.4 or sony vegas pro 12. When making a video by using audio plus one photo for the entire duration of the video, is there a way I can create these videos with only one frame for the entire duration of the 12 hour video in order to save disk space? Is there software out there that can do that? I was able to use 1 frame per second in camtasia studio 8.4, which came out to about 1.5GB to 3GB in size (otherwise the size comes out to just over 20GB, which is a bit much when it comes to uploading to youtube), which is very manageable for 12 hour long videos, but unfortunately camtasia keeps crashing on me, multiple times per day, and thus far I have not been able to figure out why. It works fine on my laptop, but keeps crashing on my desktop. Naturally, my laptop isn't exactly powerful enough to render 12 hour long videos in a timely fashion, but my desktop is, as long as camtasia isn't crashing. Any ideas regarding software that could either render videos, or convert videos after rendering, to either 1 frame per second, or ideally, one frame for the duration of the entire 12 hour video? Alternatively, what could be causing camtasia studio to crash so often? How do you troubleshoot something like this? How do I find out which piece or hardware or software on my computer is causing camtasia to crash? Any ideas?

 

I recreated camtasia crashing and recorded a video screenshot of it here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2QTL61Pc2UVVDFmRFNJLXZaN1k/edit?usp=sharing

That's a perfect example of what I'm talking about (although that particular video/channel isn't mine). It's great for calming the mind (sleeping, doing homework, and so on).
