Why are my recordings split into multiple files?

Sometimes you may notice that larger project files are split into multiple segments on your SD card or your USB drive.

There are four scenarios under which SlingStudio closes a file, thereby splitting a project into more than one file. These scenarios occur whichever comes first:

  • When you stop recording.
  • When the file size reaches 4 GB.
  • At the 1-hour recording time point.
  • When the header portion of the file structure (a portion of the file that stores various pieces of metadata) reaches 1 MB.
