1080p resolution not possible?

I need to publish videos at 1080p resolution - our media streaming service will then downgrade if needed. We've found that videos at 720p, which seems to be the default resolutions for both Replay and Blink, look slightly fuzzy/distorted when put in fullscreen mode, since most users nowadays are on hidpi displays.

Is it possible to record and publish at 1080p using Replay or Blink?

Thanks, but unfortunately that doesn't really work well from a practical standpoint. When resizing the recording area via the handles, it doesn't show the size until you release the handles. So it becomes a guessing game and almost impossible to get it exact. I searched the forum for more about this as I'm shocked it's not a more common question and the consensus answers are to just use a different tool, such as SnagIt or Captivate, to do this.

Here is a Peek recording of me trying to record a Replay capture : )


As you can see, the recording area size values do not scale/change while dragging the handles - they only get updated once I let go of the handles.

I'm using Replay 360 and I always keep the 360 apps up to date. It's currently v 2.17.xxxxxx.xxxx etc.

Mark, any progress on your test to get 1080p? I had a Replay 1 recording done by someone where we did the resizing manually with the dotted outline then after publishing, I noticed that the 1080p was not an option in the gear settings when watching the MP4 in Windows Media Player.

So, I upgraded the video to Replay 360 and 1080p is not an option. Only when I create a new project straight from Replay 360 do I see 1080p as an option for the user to adjust.
