  • Why do I hear an echo or noise with the recorded file or exported file?

    The problem might be caused by recording both system audio and another source such as a microphone or stereo mix simultaneously. If you only need to record the audio coming from your computer, select “Capture” under Computer Audio and select “Don’t Capture” under Microphone.

  • Is there a limitation on recording length?

    Actually there is not a limit on the duration of a recording. However the recording could be limited by the capacity of free drive space where you save the recorded files. Also, be aware that a longer recording time period will create very large files that may reduce system performance while working with them during editing and exporting.

  • Can I capture two PC display screens simultaneously?

    Currently Filmora Scrn only supports to capture the main display screen only if you have two PC screens.
