First and foremost, I would like an academic reference on how screen recording "works." I have tried searching online, but I only get results for the software itself.
Exactly how does screen recording work, and to what extent does the content one records effect filesize? For instance, if I were to record my screen playing an (x) resolution video, would the final output size be proportionally larger? Why or why-not?
If this question is closed, please, I would appreciate a reference, or a better way to phrase it (or a referral to a more appropriate sub-forum). Thanks.
