"screen Capture" Recording Terminates Too Soon

Question

Hi Everyone!

 

Is there an option to force "Screen Capture" recording to continue even when the active window is motionless? That is, let me decide when to stop a recording?

 

NXT4 Videos/Movies - Import - "Record your Screen" - "Screen Capture" (In an application window) works great as long there is motion in the window, but recording stops when there are several seconds of non-motion.

 

My work-around is to keep tabs in the recording window active with mouse-clicks, but, is a bit tedious.

 

Thanks in advance

I just recorded a "motionless" screen for 41 minutes without doing any mouse clicks, etc.

 

I don't see any settings for setting the capture duration

I also recorded a "motionless" screen for 15 minutes without doing any mouse clicks.

 

There is no option for capture duration.

Hi again.


Digital Guru, thank you for commenting on my question.


Windows 7 SP 1 clarification . . .


While recording a CSPAN video playing in a screen, using "Screen Capture," at times audio is playing while the screen is motionless.


When that screen-motionless happens, the video/sound capture stops but the Screen Capture recording pretends to continue recording.


It is at playback of the captured recording that it is clear the the recording terminated too soon. (Same results using other web sites.)


And, true, have no options to force recording through video pauses.


Windows 10 clarification . . .


Have an older Dell Inspiration 660S desktop @ Windows 10 connected to a TV for displaying slide shows.


Loaded Creator NXT4 on the Windows 10 Dell to see if NXT4 behaves the same: Yes it does.


Thanks in advance, Tony

What else might be running at the same time on your PC?

Interesting question, about what applications are running: None but a browser and the recording app.

 

Tried both the Microsoft IE browser and google Chrome: Same terminate-too-soon results.

 

And, recorded youtube video:

 

With the bottom moving-red-slider hidden: Same terminate-too-soon results.

 

With the moving-red slider visible, the Roxio recording works great. But, I do not want to record that moving-red slider.

I am trying to replicate this without success.

 

Of course I have to try reading between the lines since you really haven't supplied any detail as to how you are going about this. I tried earlier using this PC and no freezing present. Nor have I ever seen any captures up to 2 hours and more.

 

I am presently trying the video you have in Post #6 - Full Screen (YouTube) and with Record Your Screen set to YouTube in Edge.

 

PC is a Dell 530 with Win 10.
