SmartPixel game recorder has three recording modes: area recording mode, full screen recording mode as well as PIP mode.

Area Mode: You can only record the Minecraft video within the red box area. You can randomly adjust its range.

Full Screen Mode: You can record the video in full of your computer screen.

Picture-in-Picture Mode: This mode allows you to capture your webcam video and microphone audio simultaneously while playing Minecraft.

Usually I use full screen mode to record Minecraft gameplay videos. Sometimes I try PIP mode to show my face in front of my friends. At the bottom the the recording window, there are 4 functional buttons:

Record Button: You begin to record your video by hitting the Record Button.

Mark Button: You can mark the exciting moment by clicking the Mark Button.

Stop and Save Button  : Stopping and saving your video by hitting it.

At the bottom right of the recording window, you can click the record setting panel to set the game recording resolutions, framerates, brightness etc.


Once you have captured the Minecraft gameplay videos, you can switch to SmartPixel video editor to edit Minecraft gameplay videos. In the editing window, the Minecraft gameplay video is on the left of the window. You can drag it to the video editing window to edit it.
