Hello,

Is there any way to record a secondary monitor with presenter video express 11?  I am recording a power point and software simulations and I would like to do so on a secondary blank monitor rather than having my desktop show every time I need to make a transition between programs during recording.  I cannot find any options within video express 11 to select which monitor it is using for recording, and when I record with my desktop extended to 2 displays it will only record the main monitor.  Please let me know if there is any way to have video express 11 record the second monitor instead of the main monitor, and thank you in advance.

Hi Brian,

Sorry for the delay in responding.

Video Express doesn't support recording of secondary displays at the moment. This is something we are currently investigating, and I'll keep you posted with workarounds or updates as we have them.

Thank you,

Is there a way to pick which monitor the software records if we have multiple monitors?

Hi Brian,

Sorry we do not have this feature at the moment, but we are planning to add it in a future update.

Please be advised that you have posted this message on the wrong forum.  This is the Adobe Captivate User Forum, not the Adobe Presenter forum.  The people on this forum have no control over what the Adobe software company decides to include in any of their products.

Rod, there is no Presenter forum anymore. I got a message that Presenter questions have to be posted in the Connect forum. 

You comment is to the point, most users do not realize that staff members rarely are around to answer questions.

I think it's safe to say that PVX will not be updated in the future. You may wish to switch to Adobe Captivate or a competing product like Camtasia.

Well, you can always move the primary monitor. On Mac, at least, you can open System Preferences, select Displays, then click Arrangement. Drag the blue bar at the top of one of the monitors to the one you want to record. Then, start Presenter Video Express. It will screen record that monitor.

I use this technique to record PowerPoint decks. I set up the presentation so the Presenter Tools are on my big monitor, and the presentation runs on the smaller monitor. I also move the primary monitor to the small monitor so that PVE will pick it up.
