"Slick interface, but free version is too locked-down"
Very slick and fancy looking. User friendly.
Free version too limited. Forced sign-up for a photo sharing website. SWF files from Jing don't convert to other formats. No screen annotations on video screen captures.
I was fooled by the people at Jing. I thought their free product was flexible and had enough features for me. It does not. It can only export screen captures to SWF files which CANNOT be converted to other formats. Convertors such as Pazera fail to extract the video from Jing's swf file, only the video. I'm sure this is something Jing has done on purpose. Annotations cannot be used in screen capture videos, ONLY photos. Their website is misleading in this area. Also, I did NOT like being forced to sign up for their photo sharing website. Perhaps the paid version is better, but I'm not paying a company who so cleverly tried to cover their free version's limitations.
