Recorder overview

You can record audio, video, or screen capture in Descript. There are two ways you can access the recording features:
  • Using the recorder in the insert bar at the top of the app.


  • Using the Quick Recorder; this is a standalone recorder separate from the main application.


While this section covers using the recorder found within the main editor, it’s important to note a few differences between the two recorders:
  • Video recording or screen capturing in the main app will record separate video and audio tracks and create a multitrack sequence with them. The quick recorder will create a single video file.
  • The quick recorder is less labor-intensive on your computer than the in-app recorder.
  • If you use the in-app recorder for a screen recording with your camera enabled, you will not see your camera feed during the recording.
