    I am very new to video recording as in I haven't yet started :) I figured out how to get a stream going through twitch, but haven't yet experimented with recording and then editing.

    For Game Capture, how do you select a single UO window to record? I select one specifically for a character, but the screen remains black. I select for the entire game play window and it captures everything on my monitor. Is there way to isolate it to that single character window? Perhaps can only have one open at a time?

    What editing program do people prefer? Again, I am just getting into this but once I get started I get pretty motivated to eventually learn above the intermediate phase. Windows Movie Maker I hear is good for that, but I suspect something like Wondershare's Filmora might be more up my alley. Something I can learn better techniques with and would rather start with something I would move onto anyway if I started with a free program. I know something like Adobe or Vegas would be great, but not sure I'll get to the level of that much editing. Not for UO at least.

    Anyone have any experience with OBS, Filmora, or anything else they would suggest? Any videos that have really helped you out?

    Tips and Tricks?

    Im no expert @wylwrk would be the man to talk to for real advice but for OBS add a window capture and scroll down the drop box list and select which client you want capture. I can send you some screenshots when I get home from work if that didn't make sense.

    For editing I use Open Shot it's really basic but easy to use. I used to use Windows Movie Maker which I loved it just wasn't on my new PC so googled free video editor and found Open Shot.

    Looking forward to your films its alot of fun making UO movies.

    Thanks, been trying to mess with it more but can't seem to figure out how to specifically set a uo client capture. + Sources>Game Capture> Capture Specific Window> Select Specific client.exe

    When I do that though, the screen remains black. But if I do a Display Capture, it works how it should just fine. I'll check out more tutorials though. Appreciate your input

    Edit* My problem was selecting Game Capture and not Window Capture like you mentioned. Issue has been fixed
