Everywhere you look nowadays, the ‘standard’ in terms of high quality video is definitely 1080p Full HD. Although technically higher resolutions (such as 4k) are possible, most platforms and displays nowadays support 1080p Full HD – which makes it the resolution that you should be shooting for when recording videos too.
When it comes to recording videos using screen capture, you essentially need to set up the screen capture software to record at 1080p. Assuming you’re using Movavi Screen Capture Studio, that is actually relatively straightforward:
- Open up the ‘Select Capture Area’ and select the 1920×1080 preset to record in Full HD quality. Alternatively select your monitor’s name to record the entire screen if it is 1080p to begin with.
- Go to ‘Capture’ and select ‘Preferences’ and the ‘Video’ tab. Find the ‘Maximum capture frame rate’ and set it to 60 if you want the smoothest playback.
- When you’re ready, click ‘REC’ to start recording.
- Stop the recording when you’re done by clicking ‘Stop’ and click ‘Save’ to save the video.
If you would like to record in lower resolutions that are still high definition (but not Full HD) then you could opt for 720p or 480p by selecting a resolution of 1080×720 or 720×480 respectively. Sometimes these resolutions may be more appropriate, particularly if your monitor is 1080p but you don’t want to capture the entire screen and would rather simply record a certain region.
Also with the assistance of some of the other features in Movavi Screen Capture Studio you’ll be able to improve the videos that you record in a host of other ways. For example, you could enhance the quality of your videos, cut out any unnecessary footage, combine video clips, or even apply special filters and effects to transform the appearance of your video. In fact, you could also add audio tracks, customizable text fields, and transform he frame and orientation if required.
Because of the intuitive nature of Movavi Screen Capture Studio, it should be easy to grasp all of these features. If you spend a few minutes trying each one out, you’ll soon find that you can make full use of it – and you may even start to see just how it can help to improve your videos too.
At the end of the day regardless of whether you want to record screen capture videos in full HD or at some other resolution, Movavi Screen Capture Studio is definitely the best way to go about it. The features that it has will give you everything you need out of a HD video recorder, and will also give you the means to make sure your videos look great too.
