SnagIt records at the same resolution of your monitor. It only captures the area of the screen that is defined by. You make that selection before you start recording.
So if you are recording full screen on a 1920 x 1080 monitor.
 You will capture that monitor at "1920 x 1080 / Full HD Quality"
If you are recording a portion of the screen like 640 x 480 then it will not be HD. It will just be 640 x 480 as defined by you.

SnagIt is currently limited to 1920 x 1080 max resolution while recording.
If you are running a Ultra HD monitor at resolutions exceeding 1920 X 1080 the recorder can only capture a portion of the screen up to 1920 x 1080.
 

SnagIt 13 is coming very soon and will have the ability to record UHD monitors without limitations.
