Default Virtual Machines and Screen Recording

Hi all,

New to the forum. I'm trying to screen record some things on my Macbook Pro w 8 G of RAM but I usually run Parallels the virtual machine. Whenever I do try recording my Parallels screen using software on my Mac, it lags a lot.

I was wondering what would cause this?

Thanks!

It could be a numbering of things. How much resources such as ram has the virtual machine got?
Video recording software can be very demanding and you've got a virtual machine running so it wouldn't be running very fast.

Is there any thing that I can do to my computer to make it not lag as much while screen recording and running a VM?

One possible solution would be to add more RAM to the VM. Though have you looked into what is using the RAM?
