How do I record a screen capture video in Canvas Studio with a Chrome or Edge browser?

Canvas Studio Capture for Chrome and Edge browsers is an integrated screen capture option currently available to Canvas customers using Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge browsers.

Canvas Studio Capture for Chrome and Edge browsers integrates with your existing webcam and eliminates the need to download a separate screen capture product. It is currently supported on Chrome and Edge browsers only.

Canvas Studio Capture for Chrome and Edge browsers has expanded recovery features to save partial recordings that are interrupted by a browser crash or power outage, and to continue recording in the event of a loss of connectivity. Learn more about Canvas Studio Capture recovery features.

Notes:

  • Studio Capture is optimized for Full-HD recordings, with a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It performs best when your screen matches or is below this resolution. If your screen has a higher resolution, you may experience performance issues during recording or a decrease in video quality.
  • Screencast-o-Matic remains available as a third-party screen capture recording option for users with Chrome or Edge browsers.
