    When I do a screen recording using QuickTime (running OS X 10.10.2) does anyone know what the bitrate or quality is?

    I ask because when I upload to Vimeo it says 852 which is SD, but given this is a retina display and it's my entire screen I'd assume it would be over 10,000 being HD.

    Wouldn't know how to view that when it's a screen recording.

    Make the recording, and then on playback open the inspector via the Window Menu.

    Interesting, 44100 Hz and 2.15mbit/s.

    Weird that when pulling into Final Cut Pro, then exporting to 1080p doesn't break the 1k barrier for bit rate.
