Recording Control Dialog

Using this dialog, a video file can be set up and recording can be started. The dialog works in a very similar way to the Recording Bar, but provides a little bit more information.

The dialog can be displayed using the Toggle Recording Control Dialog command.

Record

This button initializes the video file and starts recording after initialization is completed. The Initialization may take a few seconds. Therefore, the first frame stored in the video file is delayed by the initialization time. If you want the recording to start right after a mouse click, you should click on the Pause Video Recording button. This initializes the video file but does not start the recording. A second click on the Pause Video Recording button will start the recording immediately.
