Recording Scenes 1 and 2 simultaneously - process

Local recording uses system resources. The stability and performance of your simultaneous recordings will depend on your computer's Processor, GPU, RAM. Too many simultaneous recordings may cause lag and crashes.

Accessing Your Recordings

Each scene will generate its own local recording file in your computer. To access this, go to File > My recordings.

Highlighting My recordings via the File Menu

In the My Local Files window, click the OPEN FOLDER at the bottom right. This will open the folder in your computer where the video files are located.
