Step 4: Export and Share Video

Once your recording concludes, stop to end the recording using the Stop button. This will make the video ready to be exported. The available options enable exporting the video to a preferred video format or you can share it online.

The video exporting options include MP4, MOV, MKV, AVI, WEBM, and GIF. You can also export the recorded content as an MP3 audio file. Unlike most other screen recording tools, Movavi Screen Recorder has quite an impressive rate of rendering the video using the Superspeed option. It uses hardware acceleration to speed up the time needed to render the video recording.

The Advanced options can be used to adjust the resolution, frame rate, sample rate, and channels. Once you are satisfied with the settings, click Export to save the video to your device.

You can also save your videos via link, WhatsApp, Telegram, Email, Google Drive or upload them to YouTube. This feature enables directly saving and uploading your screen recording to the cloud for instant sharing.

Take Screenshots, Record Webcam or Audio Narrations

Other than video recording, Movavi Screen Recorder also provides the option to instantly take screenshots, recording webcam video, and audio narrations.

Take Scrolling Screenshots

Using the simple option given on the menu button or by using the F8 hotkey, you can instantly take a screenshot of a selected area of the desktop. Once initiated, the screenshot tool enables you to select an area via drag and drop to instantly grab a screenshot. The screenshot tool is unique because of its ability to take scrolling screenshots to capture content that you might require scrolling down to capture. This enables capturing more than just what is immediately visible on screen.


Record Webcam and Audio Narrations

You can also quickly record a video message by recording your webcam footage. This option is available via Widgets from Movavi Screen Recorder menu.

To record narrations and transcriptions, you can use the audio recording feature to grab mic input using Movavi Screen Recorder.

Movavi Screen Recorder Settings

Configuring the settings of your screen recorder to change the default hotkeys, file output location, effects, and other options can give you a more personalized touch when recording videos. This can also be helpful in improving productivity and workflow. To change Movavi Screen Recorder settings, click the Gear icon from the menu bar.

General Settings

The General tab in the screen recorder can be used to disable or enable the countdown, show/hide the recording panel, change the menu language, enable/disable frame blinking during captures, allow window panes selection, capture separate streams, and enable/disable sound notifications.

File Settings

To change the default location of the output folder, head over to the Files tab. From here, you can also delete the original recording after export, and change the screenshot format (PNG, JPG, or BMP).

Custom Hotkeys

To configure shortcuts for various functions you can make adjustments from the Hotkeys tab. This section provides default hotkeys for taking screenshots, as well as screen, audio, and webcam recording options.

Hardware Acceleration

If you intend to set a default framerate or enable hardware acceleration or speed up video conversions, the Video tab provides options to help you do just that.

Audio Noise Reduction

The Audio tab delivers options to help you reduce noise and adjust the audio quality.

Webcam Settings

If you’re having a problem with your camera, you might want to head over to the Webcam tab to make adjustments. There is also an option to switch between a rectangular and circular webcam frame.

Mouse and Keystroke Effects

Some people prefer showing the mouse pointer and highlighting certain aspects like mouse click in a video. These features can be controlled via the Effects tab. From this section, you can enable or disable the cursor during recordings and also highlight it by selecting a preferred color. Other options allow you to enable or disable the mouse click and keystroke sound.

Schedule Recordings

You can schedule recordings using Movavi Screen Recorder by using the Scheduler tab.  To schedule a recording, go to the Scheduler tab and select Add Task. Select the title, date, time, duration, and capture area to schedule your tasks. Additionally, the system can also be scheduled to sleep or shut down once the scheduled recording is complete. This feature can be particularly useful if you are waiting for an online meeting or webinar to start which you might not be able to attend but want to record.
