How to record including Steam Overlay?


To the developers, thank you a lot for this very powerful tool;

it has been helping my recording more than any other tools have done.

Recently I got to want Steam Overlay to be recorded for a couple of reasons.

First, it may confuse my viewers that Steam Overlay's notification sound is recorded while the in-game popup is not rendered.

Second, while I am texting in Steam chat, the game is awkwardly recorded with nothing going on but the sound of my keyboard being typed is recorded.

I would appreciate if there is a method to enable Steam Overlay recording or any sorts.

If not, I would request adding the functionality for the above demands, which should be common among us.

Thank you

Thanks for the feedback. We'd have to add more capabilities to HOW we can record games before that would appear. Right now we tie into the game's graphics through the GPU. Because the Steam overlay isn't tied to the exe itself, it doesn't get recorded. However, we understand that it would be nice to have the option. I'd recommend creating a ticket in our system under "Feature Request" so that we can properly document it. 

Either way, thanks for letting us know what you would like to see!
