When recording videos I need to record at one resolution, and when I edit I do so at a different resolution. I’ve been using a very simple autohotkey script for this that I thought might be worth sharing 🙂 Ctrl 8 and Ctrl 9 lets you toggle between two set screen resolutions – you can of course change the script however you want.
