"Great Product!"

November 05, 2009  |  By romero.centre

 |  Version: HyperCam 2.14.04

Pros

Simple, easy to use, easy to learn, designed to get you recording right away. Great for recording procedures.

Cons

You can't edit the videos with the same software. It crashes often, but that might just be my computer that's having issues.

Summary

All in all the HyperCam is a really great product!

"Good, but Camtasia Studios is better."

November 02, 2009  |  By kaching999

 |  Version: HyperCam 2.14.04

Pros

One of the few programs I've found that don't hand out viruses and record the computer at the same time.

Cons

The 'Unregistered HyperCam 2" message is annoying.
Not as good as Camtasia.

Summary

Its good, but there is room for improvement, and well, Camtasia is better.
;)

"What you see and hear is what you get!"

September 01, 2009  |  By Perusoe

 |  Version: HyperCam 2.14.04

Pros

Very versatile. Many customizable features.

Cons

None that I've found so far, as long as you use the program for what it is intended for.

Summary

HyperCam does exactly what it says it can do. Nothing more and nothing less: It captures what you see and hear on your monitor screen and speakers. If you're looking for a program that will allow you to create video tutorials for others to view, then this program serves the purpose. Examples might be: 1) Show how to open a Word document, insert tables, format graphics and save your document. 2) Show how to open Windows Movie Maker, import videos, add transitions and publish your movie.

HyperCam offers many features, allowing you to capture your video according to your personal tastes. For example, if you're using a widescreen monitor set at 1680 x 1050 dpi you can custom set the area of the screen you want to capture (say, 800 x 600) and capture that portion of your screen. You can then press and hold the default hotkeys [Shift]+[Ctrl] and move your mouse around to pan the capture area to various parts of the screen you wish to capture. What works best for me is to change my desktop resolution to 1280 x 800, run HyperCam and type these numbers in the Width/Height fields on the Screen Area tab and set the Start X/Y coordinates to 0 (zero). This way I can capture the whole screen without having to pan. Also, when the video is played back in a window, it is easier to see text and icons, and amazingly clear when viewed at Full Screen.

Other features allow you to customize the Hot Keys for Start/Stop Recording, Pause/Resume, Single Frame Shot and Pan. HyperCam records as an AVI file only, but you can specify the file name, where you want to save the file and whether or not to add sequential numbers to the file name. You can specify the Frame Rate for both record and playback and even choose the cursor capture frame rate. You can also choose the video compressor (or full frames, uncompressed) and the frame compression quality. You can record your own voice annotations using your microphone or other sound from your computer ("What U Hear") and specify the sound quality. Other options allow you to choose whether to capture your cursor or not. If you decide to capture your cursor you can choose to display a "starburst" when you click your mouse and choose a different color for left and right-clicks.

You can download HyperCam from this website or from Hyperionics at http://www.hyperionics.com/. The trial version is the latest version, fully functional, free and unlimited (doesn't expire). However, with the trial version, all your videos will have the small "Unregistered HyperCam" watermark in the top left corner. If this is a problem, you can purchase a single license for $39.95 and have watermark-free videos.

Please note that HyperCam is not intended for re-recording of other video clips from the screen (e.g. playing in Media Player, RealVideo, QuickTime etc.), but rather for creating regular software presentations, tutorial, demos etc. If you still want to try it for re-recording other movie clips, please read the notes on Hyperionics' website under HyperCam.

If you're looking for a video capturing program that will allow you to capture excellent videos of your favorite gameplay sessions go to http://www.fraps.com/ and check out Fraps. Fraps is also a free download and includes a watermark on your videos. For watermark-free videos you'll have to purchase a license for $37. Fraps captures in GAMES ONLY. It does not capture video outside a game program.

"Great video capturing program(free version)"

August 23, 2009  |  By Jbone1337

 |  Version: HyperCam 2.14.04

Pros

Very easy to use
free version only leaves small watermark in top left corner you can hardly see.
not too bad on resources.

Cons

the motion blur is very bad.

Summary

its the best one that ive used for free that works well. you can record any length and the watermark is tiny and off to the side. also you can keep the free version forever, no time limit on it.

it does lag when recording, but what video capture doesnt? when recording moving things like in games, the motion blur is kinda bad, and unpleasant to look at.

i havent tried payed version, but i recommend the free version to anyone who wants to record and not pay for it.

videos i have made with it(i dont play the game any more tho)
