Use the revRecordVideo command to record a movie file.

Parameters:

The filePath is the name and location of the file that will hold the recorded video data. If you specify a name but not a location, Revolution assumes the file is in the defaultFolder.

Comments:

You must use the revInitializeVideoGrabber command to open the video grabber before you can use the revRecordVideo command.

If you specified "QT" as the video method when you executed the revInitializeVideoGrabber command, the recorded video is stored in QuickTime format. If you specified "VFW", the recorded video is stored in AVI format.

If the video grabber was already recording video to a file, executing the revRecordVideo command again stops that recording and starts a new one.

Important! If you are using QuickTime for video capture, execute the revVideoGrabIdlecommand periodically while previewing or recording video. Not doing so may cause the video in the video grabber to stutter or display strange screen artifacts

To stop recording the video input, use the revStopRecordingVideo command.

Important! The revRecordVideocommand is part of the Video library. To ensure that the command works in a standalone application, you must include this custom library when you create your standalone. In the Inclusions section on the General screen of the Standalone Application Settings window, make sure that "Video Grabber" is selected from the list of script libraries.
