The record function records the composition output to disk and immediately imports this movie into Resolume as a new clip when you stop recording. All this is done without interrupting the video output.
Before you start recording, you need to go to the General tab of the Preferences window and select the folder that you would like recorded files to be stored in and whether you would like to record video, audio or both.
By default the files are stored in Documents/Resolume Avenue/Recorded
To start recording press the 'Record' button on the toolbar. To stop recording press it again.
That was pretty simple huh? The movie you just recorded is saved to disk and inserted in the first empty clip on the bottom layer so you can directly use it again in your mix.
Note that recording does not interrupt your mixing or the video output so go ahead and go crazy on the effects and layers while you are recording.
The recorded video files are Quicktime with the Photo Jpeg codec at 100% quality. The audio files are in uncompressed WAV format.
To 4K and beyond
The recorder has been rewritten and is super fast now. Of course it still depends on your hardware and what you're doing, but generally you'll have to push it pretty hard to make it run out of memory or get it to stop otherwise.
This bad boy will keep on trucking, even at 4K and beyond.
