adjust the settings

Click the "cog" icon to open the setting panel. For the basic record options, you can change the output folder and output format as you want. To record TikTok video in lossless quality, select output format under under "HD Video" catalog. In the record time options, you can use the time scheduler to set a time to begin and end the recording. In the cursor options setting, we suggest you uncheck all the boxes to hide the mouse if you don't want it to show in the recording. Last but not least, you should set your own hotkey to control the recorder, which is super convenient when using it.

Step 2 Customize the Region to Record

Go to and find the video that you want to record. Then, you can adjust the webpage to a suitable ratio. Click the down-arrow icon next to the frame button with a "+". Next, click "Select area to record" to customize the recording area. If you want to include the comments, you can make the frame bigger.

Step 3 Capture TikTok Videos with Comments
