If you want to edit the recorded video with professional video editing programs such as Vegas Pro, Adobe Premiere, Camtasia and Pinnacle Studio, you should change the value of the Keyframe Interval to 1, or choose the Motion JPEG and PCM codecs.


1. Change the value of the Keyframe Interval to 1

To edit the recorded video with video editing software, choose the "H264 and AAC" codecs and change the value of the Keyframe Interval to 1. If you change "Keyframe Interval" from "150" to "1" after clicking the [...] button at the video codec menu, all frames become keyframes, allowing you to edit a video precisely.
Note: If you set "1" as the keyframe interval, the file size will become larger.
