About this manual

This user manual gives full instructions on how to set up, use, and troubleshoot PVRCarbon for capturing Vulkan or OpenGL ES API calls on different platforms.

Note: The remote recording functionality from the PVRCarbon GUI automatically configures an Android device for recording. Recording from the GUI should be preferred in most cases unless a command line interface is absolutely necessary.
