A project during the recording process.

The record project video option was a feature in the Scratch User Interface, added on December 21, 2015,[1] which allowed Scratchers to record Scratch projects without any third-party screen recording software. This feature was removed in Scratch 3.0.

It was only able to record durations less than 60 seconds.[1]
