Recording Video at 4k (30fps). Which encoder should I use if running other processes on Mac


New Member
Hi everyone,

I have a macbook pro 2019 (i9 - although it seems like its less lol). I wanted to know which encoder I should be using. When I click on advanced options for Recording, the encoder options are as follows:
Apple VT H264 Hardware Encoder
Apple VT H264 Software Encoder

Not sure what to do. I'm worried it will lag whilst switching between scenes and I will be using a mirrorless camera for 4K recording. Any suggestions?
