Overwatch is one of the most famous FPS games around the world. Players can experience their past Overwatch games from a whole new perspective with the Replay feature, which available on the Overwatch Public Test Realm (PTR). It allows players to watch their previous matches from any vantage point. However, Overwatch currently does not have any function to save and convert the playback of the entire match into an MP4 format for sharing. To save the gameplay on your computer, you need the help of a powerful screen recorder – RecrdAnyVid.

Part 1. Best Game Recorder to Save Your Overwatch Highlights

RecordAnyVid is an assistant that can not only help players save Overwatch highlights, but also the whole gaming match from its beginning to end. In fact, RecordAnyVid is not a recording software specifically designed for games. It also provides audio recording, screenshots and other common functions to capture any screen activities you need.

RecordAnyVid is one of the best tools for recording and sharing what's happening on your screen. With a simple and easy-to-understand interface style and operating procedures, it becomes one of the most suitable recording software for novices. The main user interface is organized into only four sections: Video Recorder, Audio Recorder, Screen Capture and More. In addition, it has many small functions set up to provide users with a more customized recording experience.


1. Recording Area Customization

RecordAnyVid enables users to record the full screen. More recording area sizes are available under "Custom". Here, RecordAnyVid allows users to select the region flexibly by stretching the dotted rectangle with the mouse.

2. Mouse settings

Users can customize whether to show the mouse cursor, click, and area during the recording in this setting. It would bring convenience to those who need to record a video tutorial.

3. Hotkey settings

As a game player, you must be more accustomed to hotkeys.
RecordAnyVid has set several default hotkeys, covering almost all possible operations.
1) Start/end recording: Ctrl+Alt+S
2) Pause/continue recording: Ctrl+Alt+R
3) Screenshot: Ctrl+Alt+C
4) Turn on/off the camera: Ctrl+Alt+W
5) Show/hide the floating panel: Ctrl+Alt+H
However, users can make changes according to their usual usage habits. After selecting the hotkey operation that you want to change and click the keyboard, then the program will automatically save the keys operations for your latter usage.

Step 3. Click the "REC" button of the video recorder while viewing and then navigate to Overwatch for starting the game. Then the recording will start after the three-second countdown.

Note: Here are two small tips to help your recording process to be more efficient.
1. If you don't want the countdown to start, you can cancel the countdown option in the "Preferences" menu.
2. You can also use Hotkeys to perform operations. The system has set up hotkeys, but users can customize them for reference. For example, the hotkey to start and end the recording is Ctrl+Alt+S by default, but if you are more accustomed to Ctrl+Alt+S, you can change the Hotkey settings in "Preferences".


Step 4. Now please wait for the Overwatch gameplay to end. The moment it is ended, you can stop the recording immediately. Then you will be turned to the previewing window for checking the recording.

Note: You can also set the record length in the menu bar at the bottom of the interface to make the recording stop at exact timing.
