I am using Camtasia to record webinars. I start the recording, and everything is fine with the "lock to application" enabled. However, when I turn over the presentation to a remote presenter, their resolution is often different than mine and when the window of the webinar program changes sizes, the recording area does not adjust to the new window size of the application.

But is there a way to have the recording area automatically adjust to the size of the application window, AFTER recording starts?

I know I could just record full-screen, but I'm interested in only capturing the application window (in this case, the GoToWebinar viewer window.)

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Tim as far as I know that is not possible using Camtasia Studio for PC. Once you have Locked that application it locks to what you are seeing and the resolution of the application window itself. You could put in to have this updated for a feature request in the future. It would be nice to be able to have resizing available when doing live recordings as it would then be easier.

The only thing I can think of at the moment to try would be to record at Full Screen and then when you are editing use Zoom_n_Pan and other tools to get the look you want. I know this is some extra work but, it is just a suggestion to try. I hope this helps. Have a great day and thanks for posting.

I guess I have the same question - but this one goes to Camtasia-for-Mac:
I want to record full-HD, I know I can choose it inside Camtasia - now I want to resize my app-window to Camtasia ́s green frame - but I can ́t without loosing the frame. Is there a way to lock the green frame to adjust my underlying app size window to match it up? Full screen recording is not an option here.
Thanks for your time.
