Record Configuration options are organized into two tabs – Capture and Replay.  The first of these (Figure 217) allows you to define the individual recordings you want to capture.


TriCaster uses the source name with to supply the filename for each recording (names are numerically incremented automatically as well).


A drop-down menu labeled Video lets you choose which video channel will be captured. TriCaster provides numerous source options. 

Selecting any Output gives you access to a variety of useful mixed video source combinations and formats, as defined in Output Configuration.  In addition, local hardware inputs can be designated as a Video source.  (Note that Outputs can be configured to use any single source, too


Audio Level

The Audio Level control lets you set the volume independently for each source you capture.


The Save To drop-down menu allows you to select from available storage volumes as targets for the recording.


Caution: It is recommended that any single drive be tasked to capture one or two video sources at most. A warning message is displayed if you exceed this number when assigning Destination settings.  TriCaster does not prevent you from exceeding this limit, however, when you are confident that very fast volumes are capable of handling the load.



TriCaster records a high quality Quicktime file.  The Transcode function in Export makes it possible to supply files in a wide number of different formats, when necessary.
