    I’m working on a project where most of the content will be cut from Zoom conversations/monolgue segments. How do the Zoom mp4 captured records compare with something you’d capture with OBS Studio or Camtasia? Or will I get tangled up in a lot of windows and only complicate things with a minimal improvement in capture quality.

    I’d welcome hearing about what people feel are the best practices for this. I would be editing the selected material on Premiere. Thank you for input!

    All i can say is, we have a client that uses OBS sometimes and it is nothing but a hassle, lots of hiccups and freezes and crashes, and that’s on one shot, not a group of them. I’m thus not a fan. I suppose a lot depends on the specific hosting PC and the quality of net connection.

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for you response. I just discovered this link. I’ll report on what I finally decide on using.

    I would suggest using Zoom local or cloud recording. There are options in the ‘recording’ settings to save higher quality videos, and also to save both spotlight and grid view (as well as screen shares). These separate videos can be multi-cammed in post to create whatever you want.

    We have done OBS captures as well, but it includes all the menus, clag and other bits you may not want to see.
