Livestream Studio's hi-resolution ISO recordings are saved as Motion JPEG .avi at the selected project format spec. Recordings are saved in a user selected destination folder (by default, you can find the files in the Videos folder).
Clips recorded locally on Livestream Studio are available for immediate use in Media Bins even while the recording is still active. Additionally, clips recorded locally on Livestream Studio are available for immediate use with Blackmagic Media Express, as well as editing software (Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, etc.) with the Blackmagic codec pack installed.
In addition to hi-resolution ISO recordings, Livestream Studio has options to record smaller, H.264 .mp4 files.
By default, Livestream Studio records an H.264 .mp4 file while you are streaming as a back-up recording. You can find the options for this under the 'Streaming' tab in settings.
To do an .mp4 recording without streaming, go to the 'Stream' tab, then click 'Change Providers.'
The following dropdown menu will appear. Click 'Stream to File,' then click 'Select.'
You can choose where the .mp4 gets saved and at what quality.
Advanced options allow you to change the aspect ratio and encoding profile.
When you want to start your .mp4 recording, click 'Encode.' The module will indicate that it is currently encoding. Click the red 'Encoding' button to stop the recording.
