Recording resolution

Video recording resolution capabilities are ultimately determined by the camera you use during recording, as well as the desktop resolution of the screen you record.

For example, if you set your recording resolution in Descript to 4K but use a camera that can only record up to 1080p, your recording’s video resolution will be 1080p.
