Is it possible to record clips less than a minute in length


Is there any way to get Nvidia ShadowPlay to record clips less than a minute in length?

Best Answer

If you manually record your gameplay, you may record as much or as little as you wish. To do that, you need to first set the recording mode to Manual or Shadow & Manual. After that, just start recording by using the hotkey you set under Toggle manual recording on/off and save, then stop it by using the same hotkey.

If you're talking about Shadow recording, there is no way to set it to record less than 1 minute. The point of Shadow recording, is that it records for as long as possible, so that you can save a record in hindsight. It allows you to catch those special moments you least expected, or the ones you forgot to start recording. Setting it to less than 1 minute would pretty much defeat the whole point of Shadow recording.

If you're worried about the space a 1 minute Shadow recording takes, you may always reduce the video quality and/or its resolution. If you don't want to, you'll have to invest in a larger storage device.
