    "Looks Nice, but a RIP-OFF"

    April 29, 2013  |   By runetic

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software Professional 1.74

    Pros

    Simple, few clicks
    Posts fps for camera

    Cons

    Audio/Video doesn't Sync
    Manual has no meat
    Suppot

    Summary

    Down loaded sample, ran some tests. Liked the product and the price so I bought it. Did some talking head video capture for training video. Looked good on playing back on Debut. Imported it to Adobe Premiere to merge with other video. Noticed my voice was out of sync with video. Tried other video players and A/V was out of sync there. Tried recording with different settings on Debut. (Manual is of no help and does not give codecs anywhere)

    Contacted customer service through email support. Got a response just stating I should use original settings with most detailed recording, which I did and got same results. I responded. Even sent videos through files2u. Haven't heard a thing back. They haven't even downloaded the videos which seems to indicate that they know of the problem and just are blowing me off.

    If you can't synchronize the audio and video in a screen capture video program, then what worth is it?

    "Really Fantastic Video Capture Software"

    April 24, 2013  |   By sumanth554

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software Professional 1.74

    Pros

    Screen recording and voice recording are really impressive. Used BSR before and that is no way near to this one and BSR ate up all my hard disk space. NCH Debut Video Capture recorded in such a way that I couldn't differentiate between the real desktop screen and recorded screen (maximized) and the size is also very low. Eg: 174 MB for a 1.5 hr duration vs BSR ~1.6 GB for 1.5 hr duration and low resolution with audio distortion.

    Cons

    None with video and voice recording.
    Haven't tried other features. So, no comments.

    "Don't bother."

    April 21, 2013  |   By jachome

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software Professional 1.74

    Pros

    Downloads and uninstalls easily.

    Cons

    Strange interface. Shows image of software on the screen and nothing else. Difficult to manage images. Won't record streaming videos or on-line programs.

    Summary

    A frustrating experience.

    "Another good screen capper"

    March 14, 2013  |   By tomysshadow

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software Professional 1.70

    Pros

    Debut is a great screen cap program with lots of Options and pretty much everything is well thought through.

    Cons

    Shareware; it doesn't tell you it is a trial until the period is over, which is quite misleading.

    Summary

    Make sure you get version 1.50 - at that time, it was a freeware and did not have a trial period.

    "Excellent but costly"

    December 22, 2012  |   By benderrodriquez

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software Professional 1.70

    Pros

    Easy to use.

    Cons

    Had some trouble getting the audio to work but after that was able to use it.

    Summary

    Too bad the company doesn't offer a no-frills version that would just copy. Otherwise, works as advertised.

    "Kinda good, kinda bad"

    December 4, 2012  |   By hglenni

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software Professional 1.69

    Pros

    It does record (30fps only) and sounds in windows 7
    It was not the total 'bomb' but it did give me what
    I needed.

    Cons

    Upgraded to windows 8, the sound driver crashes the system
    contact the company, totally ignored me

    Summary

    ok for windows 7 (and perhaps before)
    bad for 8, and company is non responsive

    "Worst ever!"

    November 19, 2012  |   By Kimbolina88

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software Professional 1.64

    Pros

    Haven't really found any

    Cons

    Spent over 100 bucks on the pro edition and found that to get the audio capture with the video, the software company recommends running a wire from my speakers to my mic input.

    What is more, the higher the resolution I try to record in, the less frames recevied (max 30 fps). There are far more robust and helpful software products out there for a less expensive price.

    Really expected more

    Terrible solutions, results and support

    Summary

    Don't waste your money, it's terrible.

    "Shabby Demo"

    November 17, 2012  |   By silverwolf636

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software Professional 1.64

    Pros

    Can't say. Didn't have enough time to try it

    Cons

    I d/l the free Pro and it let me capture one video. I didn't have enough time to judge anything.

    "DOES NOT WORK"

    October 13, 2012  |   By dtm351

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software Professional 1.64

    Pros

    Nothing pro to say.

    Cons

    The only con I can give is that it is the ultimate con; absolutely useless.

    Summary

    I tried recording three different items in three different recording formats from different sources on two different days and the best I could get was choppy (as in one frame per second maybe) video. I use NCH Wavepad with great satisfaction so I have to say the company knows how to make something decent, just not this product. The only good thing I can say is that it was trial software and didn't cost anything.

    "Good, but not great for gaming"

    September 22, 2012  |   By gameplayer2014

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software Professional 1.64

    Pros

    Easy to use
    Integrated NCH software
    Good for tuts.

    Cons

    Very laggy
    Paying for it screws everything up.
    Weird corner display fail

    Summary

    Its worth a try. DO NOT PAY FOR IT.
