Customer Area provides a flexible way to record videos in any size you like on your desktop. And this guide is to show you how to record custom area with RecMaster.
The Custom-Area Mode is one of RecMaster’s multiple fundamental recording modes. And it generally allows users to capture customized areas of their desktops with any size they like. In the meantime, it’s very easy to operate. Just within several draws and drags, a customized area can be successfully made. And then RecMaster captures everything happening in the dragged area. And you can record in rectangles or squares as you like.
Well now, let’s get through the details about how to record custom area with RecMaster.
By pressing on the Custom Area options, you can launch the Custome Area recorder.
Don’t worry if you can’t choose a precise size by dragging. After the area is chosen, you can either choose a size and resolution in the resolution list or drag the edges to get the exact size.
You can keep the default settings if you are not sure what parameters to set. And you can find some more details in the screenshots below.
While on the Windows version, you can set it to record the system sound, microphone, and webcam on the main interface. To do more settings, you can go to Menu> Settings, or Menu>> Auto Recording.
While on the Mac version, you can choose video quality (Original/HD/SD) > FPS (20-60, normally 30 FPS will be good enough) > Turn on the webcam or not depend on you > Audio sources (system sound and microphone sound).
But if you don’t know how to configure it, you can totally use the default settings as the picture above suggested. The reason is that RecMaster will provide the best quality with the smallest size.
In the process of recording, users are allowed to add annotations to their videos. And RecMaster provides users with a series of useful annotations including arrows, graphics, texts, whiteboards, etc.
After the recording, hit the red square button on the status bar to end the custom-area recording.
Other than that, you can use Alt+2 hotkeys on Windows to stop the recording.
And the recorded video footage will be stored automatically in their local folder. You can also find the recordings on the Recording List. On the list, you can playback or edit the footage.
