Monitor/Window Source

Clicking this will allow you to change your current monitor/window source with another source that's available in the drop-down menu.


Adjusting brightness changes the overall lightness or darkness of your screen capture. When you increase brightness, the source becomes brighter, while reducing brightness makes it darker.

Adjusting contrast changes the difference between the lightest and darkest areas of your screen source When you increase contrast, the brighter areas of the source become brighter and the darker areas become darker, making the image look more dynamic and vivid. Conversely, reducing contrast makes the bright areas less bright and the dark areas less dark, resulting in a flatter and less detailed image.

Adjusting hue changes the overall color balance of your source. The hue is a specific attribute of color that indicates its position on the color spectrum, such as red, blue, or green. When you adjust the hue, you shift the colors in the image or video toward a different part of the color spectrum.

Adjusting saturation changes the intensity or vibrancy of colors in your source. When you increase saturation, the colors become more intense and vibrant, while reducing saturation makes the colors more muted and less intense.

Adjusting transparency changes the degree to which your source is visible or allows other elements to show through it. When you decrease transparency, the source becomes more see-through.


Allows you to rotate the angle of your screen capture source between -180 and +180 degrees


Cropping allows you to manually adjust the visible portion of your screen capture source. You can crop from the top, bottom, left, and right using this option.
