How to Enable your Game

open the Outplayed settings and press on the Games tab, once you have added your game you can press on your game to set a Capture mode:


Outplayed Capture Modes

Outplayed has 4 different capture modes:

Highlights- Outplayed will automatically detect game events and create highlight clips for those events. You can select which game events will be automatically captured.

Full Session-  Outplayed will start to capture the moment you start the game process until you exit the game process. A full session video will be created for your entire gameplay session.

Full Match- Outplayed will start to capture the moment you start your match until the match ends. The recording will only record the match itself.

Manual capture- allows you to manually select when to record. 

How to manually capture the game

Outplayed allows you to manually record any supported game.

You can start the recording by pressing on your recording hotkeys. The default hotkeys are as follows:

What are “Before duration” and “After duration”

The "before duration" is the amount of time Outplayed will record before pressing on the record hotkey. For example, if your before duration is 20 seconds once you press on your hotkey to record Outplayed will record for 20 seconds from before you press on the hotkey. Same goes for after duration, it will continue recording for the amount of time after pressing on the record hotkey.

For example, if you click on record 1 minute into your game the recording will start from 0:40 not 1:00 when you click on the hotkey.

What is a bookmark?

Just like bookmarks in real life, creating a bookmark in Outplayed allows you to go back to the point you marked in the video.

Bookmarks are represented by an icon on the timeline. Each bookmark also has a start time and duration, clicking on the bookmark will play the segment.

Outplayed will automatically mark game events on the timeline:

Manual capture has a unique bookmark that will be added to the clip on the moment you hit the hotkey:

When Outplayed automatically captures the game, pressing the manual capture hotkeys will add a manual bookmark to the clip, allowing you to find that moment easily on the timeline.

Where to find the video files

You can find the original recording files by going to the Outplayed settings and clicking on Storage:
