    Is it ACTUALLY better to use my desktop resolution as a base canvas size?

    I mean this as more of like a technical question... not just like a... once upon a time in a YouTube video some guy said said always use my desktop resolution so that's the end solution. I have a 3440x1440 ultrawide monitor, but I basically never stream at the 3440x1440 native resolution. I...

    How can I record my whole canvas for a speed painting video?
