Screen Recording

I'm building a simulation (try-me) for an application using Storyline.

The aspect ratio of the monitors for the end users' are 4x3 (1280x1024), where as the application is wide (mostly 16:9 ratio).

The application consists of a lot of field entries. So if I zoom out to fit the entire screen, the quality is compromised and is hardly legible. 

I want to know what is the best canvas size I can use so that, the screen recording can fit without having to compromise on quality or scroll or zoom in/out. Also I want to make optimal use of the white space around.

Any suggestions?

Hi Bhuvana,

Great question! The best rule of thumb is to match your story size to the screen recording size; that way you can avoid scaling.

This article here gives some excellent tips and additional resources for screen recordings. Take a look and see if it helps! You can also check out this superb discussion here on recording bigger than the story size while keeping the aspect ratio the same.
