What’s in a name?

By January 24, 2014Iris Beta Blog

Throughout the development of Iris we’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how Iris will fit into your workflow. One area that doesn’t seem that important, but profoundly affects the way Iris integrates with the rest of your system is file naming.

Some screen recorders give you a few choices of how to name files. This just isn’t good enough for Iris. We want to let you name your recordings any way you want, but it also has to be easy to use. Starting from scratch we’ve come up with token variable based file naming that I think users will really love.

Take a look below for a preview. This UI isn’t final, but it gives you a good idea of what we’re doing


If you can think of some variables that should be added to the list let us know. Automatic naming will make its debut in our next beta which will be sent to testers in the next few days. If you would like a chance to try Iris out early, please join the Iris beta at
