       After  byzanz-record is finished, the recording is written to FILENAME.
       The format is determined by the filename extension. The following  for‐
       mats are supported:

	      benchmarking Byzanz or if you want to convert the	 recording  to

	      vert the file.

	      default and will be used if an unrecognized extension is used.
