This error is caused by the clip indicated in the error message. To fix this problem, do the following:

1. Download Handbrake, a free open source video transcoder by clicking here

2. Once the download completes, run the installer.

3. Click on the Handbrake shortcut on your desktop and wait for it to start.

4. Drag and drop your .avi file into the work area of Handbrake and click "Browse".

5. The default location is "My Documents". Type in the name of the file and click "Save".

6.  Click the green "Start" button and wait for the process to finish (the progress indicator is in the lower left corner).

Now you have a file that you can use in Camtasia and finish your project.
