    Is there a way to make the CURSOR BIGGER? On the capture video it appears to be super tiny.

    When I initiate a capture from my Dazzle DVC100 the capture screen appear with a “green strip” together with the image captured. I am using PAL M VHS tape on my VHS player. If I use NTSC it shows image without color, and capture ok but in black white.

    An Internet acquaintance is looking for a good screen capture program, but he wants to be able to save the captured video in a lossless format such as AVI/HuffyUV. I would recommend VideoStudio to him as it meets all of his other requirements, but I see no option for capture file formats other than .wmv. Is there any way to add support for other codecs or capture file formats to this module?

      Hello ehbowen,

      Currently, the screen capture tool only captures to WMV. Thank you for the feedback! We have passed it on to the VideoStudio team for their consideration.

    When I have captured my screen the view goes automatically back to VideoStudio, capture.
    I see the video but I can do nothing with it. When I click on edit, the video disappears. What goes wrong?

    As someone else asked, how can we hide the mouse pointer?

    I’m not talking about the mouse click animation, which can be disabled in the settings, but the mouse pointer itself. I still need to see it while recording, but I need it hidden from the video.

    Is there a way?

      Hello Rob,

      Currently, the only mouse-related recording option is the mouse click animation toggle – the cursor itself is always captured. We have passed this feature suggestion on to the VideoStudio team for their consideration, but we do not have anything to report there just yet!

      Hello Serghei,

      Were you looking to hide the mouse click animation? You can disable that animation from the Control Settings menu.

    Hi, I have a copy of this but it seems to be locked to 15fps (even though the options for 25 and 30fps appear in the drop down list) and the only file type it captures in is wmv. Is there a way to add support for additional file types and how do I unlock the fps setting?

      I’m having that EXACT same problem it won’t allow me to record nearly ANYTHING with the screen capture. Everything from other videos and opening new windows is stuck at 15fps, it’s frustrating.

        Hello Cora,

        Which version of VideoStudio are you encountering this issue in, and is it a trial version?

        Additionally, do you have multiple versions of VideoStudio installed on the same system? If you have multiple versions on the same system, we would suggest uninstalling each of them, and then reinstalling the latest version.

    Hey together,
    do someone know, if the capturing/video-length/file-size… (anything during capturing) is limited to an maximum?
    Or is it possible to capture screen content until the system disk is full? 🙂
    Thanks in advance!!

      Hello Jon,

      You guessed right! The only limit you will encounter is the space on your hard drive.

    Hey there,

    Purchase VideoStudio back in April but never have chance to play with it. Just started watching tutorials here.

    Can I replace/re-record/edit my voice on the recorded screen capture file? Sometimes we create tutorial but our voice not came up clearly.

      Hello Tony,

      That you can! You can use VideoStudio replace all of the audio in a video file, part of it, mute or change the volume anywhere in the file, multitrack your audio, and more.

      To help get you started, we would suggest checking out our Playing With Audio tutorial, here:

    Hi there,

    How can I zoom to the mouse cursor while recording?


    May 13, 2016 at 8:59 pm
    • Adam Reply

      Hello Lyes,

      While we do not have a tool for zoom-to-cursor during capture itself, this is generally done in post-production. The Pan-and-Zoom effect is a common method to focus on a specific area of your video. Alternately, here is a quick tutorial by Gripps on a quick zoom method using the Distort Mode tool.

      Hope this helps!

    This is a studio setup for making YouTube videos.
    My camcorder does not have an external mic jack.
    Therefore, is it possible to capture live streaming video from a camcorder while simultaneously capturing live audio from a mic plugged into the jack on the computer?
    Both video and audio tracks would be synched in their respective tracks.
    Can this be done, and if so, how?
    I have no yet purchased you application…

      Hi Leon,

      If I’m understanding it correctly, you’ll end up with one video clip and one audio file. In VideoStudio you can put the video clip on the Video Track and the audio file on the Music Track which should achive the result you want. You are free to move the video or audio forward/backward on their respective track to make them synched. We suggest that you download a 30-day free trial to give it a try! Hope it helps.
