I'm having a difficult getting my first video to display correctly. My monitor resolution is 1920 x 1080. I'm using Camtasia 9 to video my screen. I was told, when I submitted a video for testing, that I should produce an MP4 file that is 1280 x 720. In Camtasia I have my Size settings set as follows:
But, when the video is generated, it doesn't look very good, as you can see below:

Always record your screen at the resolution of your expected output. So, if you want to create an HD video, switch the resolution of your screen to 1280 x 720. You can do that on Windows in System Preferences. If you're on a Mac, use an app like QuickRes.
