    Hello Everyone!

    I have a project where I record some assets in play mode using Unity Recorder to get some videos and images, this takes around three minutes to take and save because it renders "In real time". But I want to speed Unity Recorder up someway so instead of rendering real time and take three minute, I can take and save the same video in less time (Half the time would be awesome!). I already played a little with the Frame Rate and made the Playback Variable with 60 FPS but seems like movies doesn't support that kind of playback, I even changes to Constant and 60 FPS but not the result I wanted, just making the video really smooth.

    Can you help me know what can I do to make the video rendering faster?

    Hi jramirez_as,

    Just to confirm, are you using a Movie Recorder? If yes, the Movie Recorder does not support variable frame rate so I don't think it will make much of a difference.

    One thing you could do is increase the Time Scale of the project, and then record with a high Frame Rate. Here are two posts that talk about how to do this:

    - https://forum.unity.com/threads/can-i-render-and-record-a-cutscene-faster-than-realtime.975456/

    This could speed the whole process up. Let me know if it helps!
