Screen recording is a vital feature for gaming videos, as well as many types of tutorials and presentations.
Note: this feature is only available for the Windows version of FilmoraPro.
In the media panel, click on +New and choose Recording.
A window like the one below will pop up after you click Recording.
On the left of the Screen Recorder Window, you can choose between three recording modes by clicking the drop-down arrow.
The recording modes are Full Screen, Custom, and Target Window.
Full Screen: Records your entire screen.
Custom: Lets you choose a customized region of your screen to record. You can either drag the edges of the selected area to re-size it or enter a custom resolution into the W (width) and H (height) fields.
Target Window: Lets you choose a program, internet browser, or other windows to record.
Choose whether or not to record system audio by toggling the speaker icon on and off.
You also have the option to record from a microphone. You can either turn this option off by clicking on the microphone icon or select the dropdown menu underneath it to choose a mic connected to your computer.
If you’re using more than one monitor, click on the icon that looks like two screens to choose which one you want to record.
Click on the gear icon in the lower right of the recording window to see more options.
To begin recording your screen, click the red ‘Record’ button.
There will be a brief countdown before the recording starts.
By default, you can press F9 to stop recording (unless you changed to a different key). Or, you can find the recorder toolbar by clicking on the red recording icon among the system icons in your computer’s taskbar. It will look like this:
After you’ve clicked that icon, choose Open recorder.
In the toolbar that opens, click the stop button to stop your recording or the pause button to pause it.
