Using desktop capture I want to share a Powerpoint and several Chrome windows as two separate desktop capture inputs. I operate Vmix on one 32 inch screen and next to the first monitor, I have another 32inch screen where I currently place the Powerpoint and Chrome Windows. To gain the highest resolution for these two desktop captures should I have the PowerPoint window as a full-screen desktop capture and then swap to a full screen of the Powerpoint or should I shrink both down into two smaller windows sitting next to each other?

If it's a simple powerpoint you can directly import into vmix. It will convert it into images. If that is ok that would be the best option. The desktop capture is capturing the real pixels. You might want to capture windows instead.

Thanks for your reply - you mentioned "The desktop capture is capturing the real pixels. You might want to capture windows instead " What's the difference? The first suggestion unfortunately does not allow for PowerPoint transitions, which is why I am looking for an alternative.
