Advanced Settings
  • Show Cursor shows or hides your mouse cursor in your recordings.
  • Frame Rate determines how many frames are captured per second.
    • 30fps and 60fps are supported for 1080p and below; 30fps for 1440p and above.
  • Video Bitrate is the amount of data per second allocated to video. Higher bitrate will improve video quality but take up more storage space. Higher resolution and frame rate demand higher bitrate. Do not worry about this field unless you want to improve quality or storage space.
  • Audio Capture determines whether your computer audio is recorded. This feature will record sounds from games, videos, and voice calls when enabled.
    • Audio Bitrate is data per second allocated to audio. Bitrates above 128 Kbps are rarely needed.
The Capture feature cannot record audio from your own microphone yet.
