    "Great Screen Recorder"

    November 28, 2011  |   By southpawami


    No slow down with program flow when Screen Recording.
    External and webcam input.
    Basic video editing features such as cutting, overlays, watermarks, etc...
    Fast encoding(doesn't compare with Vegas 11 Pro, but what does?)
    Only 200 for the most stable and least tasking screen recorder I've used yet.


    A crazy microsoft only format which only the encoder reads, making going to a good NLE, then to Encoder impossible from screen recording.


    It makes the best screen recording I've seen when I compare the quality and performance to anything else I've tested(such as camtasia, snagit, fraps, captivate) Wish the encoder was a more capable video editor, or that there was an option to export to sony vegas 11... but all in all, at 200, it's completely worth it. You'll want at least a hybrid vector and bitmap editor for overlays and watermarks, like canvas 12, fireworks, or microsoft expression design.

    One word of warning, this software has only one audio overlay, one video overlay, one media item insert at the beginning, one media item insert at the ending. Which essentially equals branding, watermark branding or PIP(picture in picture), and a finished sound track from any audio editor. It has encoding capacities of 40Mbps video(blu-ray quality) and 768kbps audio(lossless). Output is always limited by input.
