ScreenFlow terms

Frame Size

The dimensions of the video frame in pixels.

What is the frame size in ScreenFlow?

ScreenFlow does not have a specific "frame size" in the traditional sense, as it is a screen recording and video editing software. The frame size in ScreenFlow typically refers to the resolution of the video you are working on, which is usually determined by the size of the screen you are recording. For example, if you are recording a screen with a resolution of 1920x1080, then your frame size in ScreenFlow would be 1920x1080 pixels.

However, you can adjust the canvas size in the editing process to suit your needs. This can be done by going to the properties panel and adjusting the canvas dimensions. This will effectively change the frame size of your final output. It's important to note that changing the canvas size can affect the quality of your video, so it's recommended to keep it consistent with the original screen resolution whenever possible.

How to adjust frame size in ScreenFlow?

To adjust the frame size in ScreenFlow, you first need to open the project you want to work on. Once your project is open, navigate to the top menu and click on "File". In the drop-down menu that appears, select "Document Settings". This will open a new window where you can adjust various settings related to your project.

In the Document Settings window, you will see an option for "Canvas Dimensions". Here, you can adjust the width and height of your frame to your desired size. Simply input the values you want in the provided fields. Once you're done, click "OK" to save your changes. Now, your frame size has been adjusted according to your preference.

Why is my frame size not changing in ScreenFlow?

There could be a few reasons why your frame size is not changing in ScreenFlow. One possibility is that you may not be using the correct method to adjust the frame size. In ScreenFlow, you can change the frame size by going to the "File" menu, selecting "Document Settings", and then adjusting the "Canvas Dimensions". If you're trying to change the frame size of a specific clip, you need to select the clip and then adjust the scale in the video properties panel.

Another possibility is that there might be a software glitch or bug preventing the changes. Make sure you are using the latest version of ScreenFlow, as updates often include bug fixes. If you're still having trouble, try restarting the program or your computer. If the problem persists, it might be worth reaching out to ScreenFlow's customer support for further assistance.

What is the default frame size in ScreenFlow?

ScreenFlow does not have a specific default frame size as it automatically adjusts to match the resolution of the screen or device being recorded. When you start a new recording, ScreenFlow will capture the full screen of your device by default. However, you can adjust the recording area to a specific size or area of your screen if you prefer. After recording, you can also adjust the canvas size in the editing process to suit your needs. The flexibility of ScreenFlow allows you to customize the frame size to fit your specific project requirements.
