Is there any software to record only one or multiple workspaces in Ubuntu 18.04.

I want to make a tutorial video and I want only one workspace to record and not the other one.

And please note, I'm not asking about recording any particular Area or Window or Screen, I'm talking about a particular Workspace in Ubuntu.
Here is a YouTube video showing Workspace in Ubuntu.

    have you tried with any particular recorder or not yet? – UnKNOWn Dec 27 '18 at 12:52

    screen recorders record the Display, either in full or part of. They don't have any concept of workspaces. So while recording don't go to another workspace.. – doug Dec 27 '18 at 14:53
  • @PRATAP, I've tried 2-3 popular open source screen recorder (i.e. Kazam, SimpleScreenRecorder) but none of them have an option to record only particular workspace. – Akash Giri Dec 28 '18 at 13:20

As pointed out by @doug in comments, screen recording softwares are usually workspace-agnostic in the sense that they don't have any concept of workspaces and record whatever is currently on your screen(s) or monitor(s) (either the full display or an allocated area or window).

So if you want to record only one workspace, just do not switch to other workspaces while recording. The video you added to your question also shows the same behaviour.
