Although the pause button can be used while recording a Panopto video, we recommend using it sparingly.
What you might find unusual is the video's time counter continues even while the video is paused. This is because the recorded content is non-destructive. Panopto continues to record so that the paused sections are available in the editor if the user needs to restore any of the content. However, upon regular playback, the paused sections should not be visible to the viewer. Due to this unique pause feature, please be sure to remain professional even when "pause" is pressed. Additionally, review your finished video to ensure it is the video you want to submit for evaluation.
