Editors' review

ScreenFlow is a popular screen-recording and editing tool for creating screencasts, such as presentations, tutorials, and product demos, on your Mac. This app can handle every aspect of pulling together a screencast, from high-quality screen capture (including the ability to grab iSight and DV camera data, and mic and computer audio) to editing and exporting, with built-in YouTube publishing.

Thanks to ScreenFlow's fairly intuitive interface (now with even more time-saving shortcuts and contextual menus), even novice users can assemble a basic screencast. Experienced users, on the other hand, will appreciate the app's more sophisticated touches, such as the ability to freeze frames, adjust clip and transition speed (with 2D and 3D transitions), and apply saturation, brightness, and contrast to clips. Recent updates have also added the useful ability to create standalone Flash files, with the video, html, and player all embedded in the file.

All in all, ScreenFlow is one of the best apps of its kind for the Mac--and as a bonus, it even comes with a Flip4Mac WMV Studio serial number.

    "This is very annoying."

    August 04, 2012   |   By TinyIron

    Version: ScreenFlow 3 3.0.6

    Pros

    It worked at first.

    Cons

    It didn't work after a few recordings, it just wouldn't let me record.

    Summary

    The only problem really is that it stopped letting me record! The record button just didn't show up, and eventually I just stopped using it. Please fix this, because besides this, it's great.

    "Easy to use, great video enhancement capabilities"

    July 30, 2011   |   By northview5

    Version: ScreenFlow 2.1.10

    Pros

    The software is very easy to use. Easy to start and easy to stop. The videos are easy to splice, rearrange, zoom in, add captions, starting and ending transitions, etc, etc. Quality of video is great and so is the quality of the voice recording.

    Cons

    A little pricey. If you are making videos as helpful favors to other people, it may be hard to justify the cost.

    Summary

    I am not a professional videographer! But in my field I need to create demo videos showing how to use our industry's specialized software. It took me a little bit to figure out how to use the features in Screenflow, but in the end it was worth it! The software is very, very easy to use. Easy to start and easy to stop. The videos are easy to splice, rearrange, zoom in, add captions, starting and ending transitions, etc, etc. I've been thrilled with it and so have my viewers. They've often commented on the quality of my videos and all the credit goes to Screenflow. I do have a hard time justifying the cost. However, the software is a great help to me so I was willing to fork out the money and try not to think about the cost anymore.

    "Wonderful application"

    May 21, 2011   |   By k2103

    Version: ScreenFlow 2.1.8

    Pros

    Nice interface and good french localization.
    Good possibility of editing, including image cropping and adding text.
    Several export formats.

    Cons

    Nothing to report at this time.

    Summary

    Easy to use, without even having read the manual yet.
    This is a preliminary view that the experience could justify.

    "Great for mini lessons that must be repeated."

    October 17, 2010   |   By irwin bedell

    Version: ScreenFlow 2.1.4

    Pros

    Amazed at the clarity of my brief presentations.

    Cons

    The time it took to come out with such an amazing product.

    Summary

    Easy to use. Friendly. Great results. Will be used in future presentations that
    require a brief overview. Thanks for coming out with this product. You have
    made presentations a delight. Will try to encourage others to use it on products
    they have liked.

    "Easy to start, stop, and name a recording."

    September 18, 2010   |   By JJim-Myers

    Version: ScreenFlow 2.1.3

    Pros

    Easy to start, stop, and name a recording. Good quality picture and sound using built in audio and streaming video. (I have not recorded anything containing music, or from any source other than streaming video.)

    Cons

    I have no idea how to edit anything with ScreenFlow.

    Summary

    When using the fast forward and fast reverse features, it jumps to the beginning or end of the session. Clicking on the time bar above the sound display works, but occasionally freezes the visual. Also, when using the fast forward and fast reverse features, it jumped to the beginning or end of the session. Clicking on the time bar works, but occasionally freezes the visual. The audio does not appear to be affected when the video freezes.
    A users manual would be very helpful.
    Also, when I tried to purchase the product, I had to use a free version first. The next day, the free version evaporated. I went back to the home page again, and had to use a free version again, and finally found a link that allowed me to purchase the full version. The link was not easy to find, and was not obvious. (You know, some people, and I am one of them, would just prefer to have the choice of buying the program immediately, or trying a free version first.) Given that choice the first time I visited the site, I would have bought it first, then tried it out.
    I don't like being made to jump through so many hoops in order to buy something I want. (This product was referred to me by an online marketer not associated with Apple. That is why I would have purchased it on the first visit.)
    Despite the problems I had just trying to give money to the vendor of this product, I do like it and have used it several times. However, I cannot express how much I would like to have access to a users manual.

    "ScreenFlow 2.0.2 Is Very Hard To Use"

    March 08, 2010   |   By fun1socal

    Version: ScreenFlow 2.0.2

    Pros

    At first glance, the software interface looks good.

    Cons

    Editing and saving the video in this software is NOT user friendly.

    Summary

    First off, the command for stopping the recording (arrow up, 2, command) does NOT stop the recording. Prepare to fill up your hard drive with useless video if you're not careful. You have to quit the program and reopen it, then it will ask you to stop the recording. Simply editing/deleting the end of a video is impossible to figure out! I've spent over an hour and haven't figured it out yet. $99.99??? I wouldn't pay 10 cents for this software.

    "Works fine for me "

    October 28, 2009   |   By tymoe

    Version: ScreenFlow 2.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    after i have been searching for a mac alternative to adobes captivate for ages i finally found screenflow.

    well, its not like captivate and its way far from being like captivate, but for me it works well.
    it does not work as perfect as captivate, but it works on my mac. captivate is still not available for mac. :-)

    well, after recording i have to reedit the video, but thats fine for me.

    i can highly recommend screen flow.

    yours
