Overwolf Window Capture Settings

Overwolf Window Capture Settings

Overwolf’s Game Capture app lets you record in-game and desktop footage easily and with great results.
By default, the video recorder will capture all of the Overwolf windows, except the video recorder window and the recording indicator.
If you’re recording some epic footage and want to customize the captured Overwolf windows, you can easily choose what will be recorded.

Window capture options:

  • All windows – All of the Overwolf windows that are overlayed on top of the game will be captured.
  • All, except the video recorder – All of the Overwolf windows, except the video recorder window and the recording indication, will be captured.
  • Don’t capture any window – No Overwolf windows will be captured. Only the game will be recorded.
Note: Desktop capture will record everything that’s displayed on the desktop – that means all Overwolf windows as well.

Issues with OpenGL:

Currently OpenGL games don’t support the “All, except the video recorder” option, if you select this option it will record all of the Overwolf windows. So if you’re playing an OpenGL game, you can either switch to DirectX (when available) or choose either the “All windows” or “Don’t capture any window” options. Also, when using the “All windows” option.
