ScreenFlow is a video capture software program made specifically for Mac OS X computers. A previous Apple Design Award Winner, the program is used by educators, app developers, bloggers, marketers and tech professionals to create screencasts for a variety of purposes. The program is available for a free trial period and then can be purchased from Telestream.net.
With ScreenFlow, Mac users have the ability to record the entire screen of their computer with just a click. The program also has the ability to record the action taking place on a video camera or webcam or an iOS device like an iPhone or iPad. Users also have the option to choose the audio source and can use the microphone or the computer audio as the input.
After a screencast has been created, users can take advantage of a number of editing effects within ScreenFlow. Basic editing features like editing video and adding images, captions, text and music can all be accomplished quickly with the program. It’s also possible to add professional transitions to make videos more exciting. More advanced users can take advantage of a number of high level video options, including the ability to add call outs to show what actions were taken on a touch screen.
Completed videos are easy to share with ScreenFlow. Users have the option to save their videos as MP4, MOV and M4V files. Automatic sharing to Google Drive or Dropbox as well as to YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook and numerous other sites is also offered.
