Creating a 1024x768 Video On A High Res Monitor With Macro Express Pro Helping

Updated: at 02:12 PM


I’ve recently started my journey as a Pluralsight author and, as is know surprise, I’m spending a lot of time getting my tools set up.  Regardless of what video editing tool you use, you need to record both screens and voice.  I believe most video authors at Pluralsight have a dedicated monitor running at 1024x768.  They simply record this windows.

Unfortunately for me, that does not work so well because I’m doing all my work on a MacBook Pro with just two external monitors (neither of which run correctly at 1024x768).  So, my process is to create a 1024x768 window in the upper left hand corner of my Thunderbolt monitor (resolution 2560x1440).  I’m going to run camtasia recorder in a custom region sized 1024x768.  The challenge now becomes you have to align exactly your apps.  You’ll see from the video I’m attaching below that my steady hand is not so steady and I would never be able to achieve this exact positioning.

So, just a couple notes
