As a Zwift content creator, I record almost all of my races on Zwift in order to provide content on my channel. Having actual footage of the race is much more interesting than just having someone sit there and talk about the race. The footage makes the video way more immersive for the viewer and will increase the engagement of your viewers. In this post, I will be discussing how you can record your Zwift races/rides on all of the different devices.
Mac is the platform that I am most familiar with as it is how I create all of my content. The easiest way to record your screen on Mac is to use the Quicktime Player app.
- After opening the app, click and hold on the app icon on the app bar
- Click the option that says “New Screen Recording”
- After clicking on this, you will be presented with a few options regarding the format of the video(size, audio input, etc)
I have found that this method provides much higher quality than using an external app to do the recording.
I am not too familiar with PC, but from what I can recall, you can pull up the XBox game bar which allows you to record your screen. If you are aware of any other methods, please share below!
- Windows Key + Alt + R will bring up the XBox game bar
- After that, a small icon will show up that shows how long you’ve been recording and whether your microphone is on or off
Based off of what I have seen, this allows for the highest quality recording possible on PC.
Recording from iPhone and iPad is extremely easy once you know how to get started. Here are the steps to get it up and running.
- First, head over to settings
- Then, head over to “Control Center”
- After that, you will see a list of widgets that are already on the main screen when you swipe down or up on your screen (this will vary depending on whether you have a phone with a home button, or a phone without).
- Add the “Screen Recording” feature to the “Included Controls” list.
- Then, swipe up or down (as I said, it varies), and you will see a record icon
- Clicking this icon will start the recording. To stop the recording, pull the controls back up and tap it again
This is the platform that I am least familiar with. I personally have never used an Android, so please excuse me if my explanation is not great.
- Swipe down from the top of the screen
- If you currently have “Screen Record” as an option, just click that to start the recording
- If you do not, you will need to add it to the quick settings by editing your quick settings options
I hope that this was helpful, and enjoy creating content!
