Here are few more tools, including an open-source, cross-platform tool that can help you record Overwatch, save it on the computer, and also edit them when required.

OBS is the best screen recorder and streamer out there. macOS is limited, and that's where OBS Studio helps those who need to do a lot of heavy work.

You can record system sound, record from multiple sources, use noise filter gates, and then merge all of them into one video. You can also set up Screen Collection, where you predefine input and output sources. So, if you need to switch between the sources, you can easily do it through it.
