Key differences

It’s important to note a few differences between the two recorders:

  • Video recording or screen capturing in the editor will record separate video and audio tracks and create a multitrack sequence with them, whereas the Quick recorder will create a single video file containing both video and audio tracks.
  • The Quick recorder is generally known to be less labor-intensive on your computer than the Editor recorder.
  • If you use the Editor recorder for a screen recording with your camera enabled, you will not see your camera feed during the recording.
