Statistics feature provides useful information about current recording session including actual recording frame-rate, actual frame rate mode, buffer size and resource usage of the application. This information helps you monitor health of recording and change output options when necessary to make sure the output is going to be as good as expected.

To view statistics, click Statistics button from application window during recording.
