How can I adjust how a teams recording looks visually?

During a teams meeting when I record it, I'm expecting to see the meeting recording reflect what's on my screen. For a meeting where I'm recording for someone else, I pin that user on my screen to make them full screen then start the recording. At the end of the meeting I stop the recording before the meeting organizer stops the meeting. After the recording uploads on the Microsoft teams meeting chat and I play the video back: the main person that I pinned takes up a quarter of the screen, my image takes up half of the screen and the other participants are scattered around the screen.

Why is the recording changing how it looks, and what do I need to do to make the recording reflect how I want it to record the meeting?

    Hi Angel!
    I am afraid there is no way to change Teams recording view after you finished Teams meeting.
    Some customer seems have the same issue on it(Link: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/39245266-pin-video-feed-in-a-recording). We recommend you give your feedback in Teams UserVoice. Microsoft will always focus on customer’s feedback and experience. Some new features would be added to the services based on customers' feedback in the future, and your good ideas will be very helpful for them to improve the service.
    Your time, understanding and cooperation will be highly appreciated.

    Hi,

    I have faced the same issue. I accept that nothing can be done for my existing recording, but is there a way to resolve this for future recordings? Is it possible to set up a recording so it only highlights one speaker?

    Thanks
