    "good quality"

    April 30, 2012  |   By MeanGenius

    Pros

    records good quality video
    can record in very high bitrate
    good options
    review recorded file in CaptureWiz media player

    Cons

    big file sizes
    did not record HD sound "from speakers"
    $40 is a lot for the function it provides
    poor interface
    not easy to use

    Summary

    I tried probably a dozen. Records in good quality but there are so many bad things it's just not worth $40.

    Thanks for trying CaptureWiz! About the big file sizes, we don't compress while recording because it results in poor quality and sluggish behavior. We use a format that's optimized for recordings.

    About the blank audio, usually the problem is in selecting the right audio channel. Here's how:

    As for the interface, yes it's different than others, we think it's simpler.

    As for ease of use, recording takes just 4 steps:
    1 On the capture bar, click Video.
    2 Select the area to record.
    3 Click Start.
    4 Click Stop.

    As for limited features, did you see the new scroll tool? We think it's the best in the business.

    Top ten features:
    1 Choice of outputs
    2 Capture bar
    3 Predictive capture
    4 Selection tweaking
    5 Scroll capture
    6 Timed recording
    7 Frame tool
    8 Sticky notes
    9 Thumbnail viewer
    10 Macro functions
