The Quick Recorder is Descript’s standalone recorder, allowing you to make video or screen recordings without opening the main app. The Quick Recorder has most of the functionality that the in-app recorder does, but there are a few crucial differences between the two recorders:
- Quick Recordings automatically publish when you stop your recording, so they’re ready to share earlier.
- 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 file that includes both audio and video.
- 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.
