Video Recording Dimension

Jan 26, 2016

Hi there, I am using Articulate Storyline 2 using Windows Desktop on a Mac. I want to use the full screen option within the video recorder. However, I do not see that option in the recorder dropdown. The only options I see are Select window, 4:3 and 16:9.

Did anyone face similar issue? Any help or suggestion is appreciated. Thank you.

Hi, Aditi -- Thanks for reaching out with your question! My apologies if I am unclear, but please see the following as it appears here in this tutorial on Recording Screencasts

Step 3: Size and Position the Recording Area

To adjust the size of your recording area, drag the sizing handles on the dashed outline or use the drop-down list on the control bar to select preset dimensions. To adjust the position of your recording area, just drag it to a new location on the screen.

Here are some helpful tips for sizing your recording window:

  • To optimize your screencast so it fills the entire slide, be sure the size of your recording window matches your slide size.
  • The largest screen recording area that's supported is 2046 pixels by 2046 pixels. 
  • Multi-monitor recording isn't supported.
  • If you're recording a web application, we recommend using Internet Explorer. It sends the richest data to the Windows Accessibility API, so Storyline knows what to record. Firefox also works well. Google Chrome reports little information, so caption details will be missing and some steps could be omitted entirely.

Please let us know if you still need help!

Hi Aditi!

Based on that image, it looks like you may need to adjust your DPI.

Articulate Storyline requires Microsoft Windows to be configured with 96 DPI (dots per inch). If Windows is using a different DPI setting, you may experience erratic behavior, such as:
*  Elements of the application are misplaced or distorted.
*  Objects are misplaced or distorted when previewed or published.
*  Zoomed images don't work as expected.
*  Font sizes are incorrect after using the translation features.
