Don’t stop recording when minimize/maximize windows
If you minimize or maximize a window during recording, recording stops. If you start recording then minimize during the countdown, it does record minimized (MIDI and webcam events). So it appears the act of minimizing or maximizing turns off recording - record works fine while minimized.
This request is then for minimize/maximize to NOT stop recording. So you can start recording, then minimize to get it out of the way once everything looks like its working.
This should be resolved in the latest version of Character Animator. Let us know if you continue to have issues.

Yeah, we noticed this as well. That behavior has been fixed in internal builds. Thanks!

Actually this should also include the window gaining and losing focus. If you start recording with focus, losing focus stops recording. If you start recording without focus (take focus away during the 3 second count-down), then gaining focus stops recording. Both cases should continue recording.
