When you finish your recording and open it in the Video Editor, it will default to the recording size that you selected. You can change this size under Canvas on the right.
When using the Video Editor, you can edit videos at any resolution by selecting the Canvas size.
Again, if you are a Free user, or you have a Solo Deluxe or Solo Premier plan, when you select Upload to ScreenPal as the publishing option for your video, your video will automatically be uploaded to your Hosting account in 720p.
Note: Regardless of which plan you have, when you create a story by clicking the Story button in the Project Manager, the size of your canvas defaults to 720p. Select a difference size if desired.
Sharing and Uploading
When sharing a completed video from the Video Editor, our Solo Max and Team Plans support up to 4K resolution uploads to screenpal.com. Free, Solo Deluxe, and Solo Premier plans support uploads to screenpal.com up to 720p. Users on all plans, including free users, can upload videos to YouTube at 1080p.
The same rules apply when uploading existing videos to your account using the Upload Videos page (accessed by clicking the Upload button in the top right of your Content page in Hosting).
Free users, as well as Solo Deluxe and Solo Premier users can upload videos up to 720p. Solo Max users, and new Team Education, and Team Business Plan users can upload videos up to 4K.
Is there a way to change the framerate (fps) that the Recorder uses to capture the screen?
Our Screen Recorder will capture at the highest framerate possible. There is not currently a setting to customize the framerate setting.
What if my video is higher resolution than my plan allows?
If you have a 1080p or 4K video, for example, and your plan only allows up to 720p, we will accept your video. However, it will automatically be transcoded down to your plan's maximum allowed resolution when you upload it to ScreenPal.
Which video resolution is best for uploading to YouTube?
The standard aspect ratio for YouTube on a computer is 16:9. For the default 16:9 aspect ratio, you can upload at these resolutions: 360p, 480p, 720p, 1080p, and 4K. If your video has a different aspect ratio, the player will automatically change to the best size to match your video and the viewer's device. For some video and device aspect ratios, YouTube may add more vertical padding for optimal viewing.
Which video format is best for Vimeo?
You can upload videos to Vimeo in both standard definition (360p, 480p) or high definition (720p, 1080p, 4K). However, the more pixels there are, the clearer your video will be.
