Screen capture software

Recommended Posts

There are several people here that post very helpful video snippets of their on-screen actions.  What software is used for this?  I think it would be very handy to demonstrate some questions that are difficult to word properly.

I have a MAC...so, it comes with "QuickTime" which I use for screen capture...and "iMovie" that I use to put together the final "edited" movie files.  It works...but it's not the most professional software.  If I can bring myself to spend the money I'd buy "CAMTASIA 2018".  It looks like a great piece of software...but, it cost about 260.00...and for 299.00 I can buy Apples pro movie editing software called "Final Cut Pro X".  I'm still investigating...and trying to learn about all the available products.

 

The one reason I like "CAMTASIA" is that you do the screen recording and the editing in the same piece of software.  Seems like the way to go...

I used to use Snagit until it became unreliable so I did not renew it, I used Go to Meeting for years and now just use Zoom Meetings for creating video tutorials. So far, it is utterly reliable.

I use Snagit.  I use Zoom for online meetings... never thought to use Zoom for recording videos... I am going to give that a try.  Thanks David.

Snagit for me also, never had any problem, for an extra fee you can use their  online storage so you don't load up your hard drives

Screenflow is the best on a mac, imo.  Same ability to edit in the same app.  Can record from iPhone screen as well.

Why do you prefer “Screenflow” versus Camtasia.  There is a big price difference.  Are there other benefits?  I’m trying to decide...I’m considering both.  Thanks.

I started using ScreenFlow way back in v4 time frame.  It's just really easy to do everything I need.  I haven't tried Camtasia. 

 

With Screenflow I get maybe 70% of what I have with Adobe Premiere (I am NO power Premiere user) with a very easy learning curve. 

 

YouTube has all kinds of good videos.  https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=screenflow+
