I have been using Snagit for a long time for screenshots and screen capturing. A few days back, Sameshow team contacted me for a review of their software, Wondershare screen recorder Democreator. I decided to give it a try and was amazed by it’s capabilities. It’s far advanced than any other screen recording solution I have used.
It gives me three options for screen recording, one, I can capture the screen actions of one window which is very good for application recording. Two, I can set a custom screen size and record the screen actions of the selected area. Thirdly I can record the whole screen. It also gives me the option to either capture a screenshot based on clicks and typing or full fledge recording without any pausing or I can also use F7 key to take the screenshots I want.
If I want to record the audio narration during recording, I can select it on the next screen. Stopping a video is very easy. Just press F10 and the video will stop recording. Then it will show the post recording options where I can preview, edit and produce the video. Editing a video is really a fun work. I get a Microsoft Office 2007 like interface with the Ribbon toolbar.
The best thing I love about Wondershare DemoCreator is the publishing feature. I can publish my videos in flash format or any other popular format such as AVI, WMV, MOV, MP4 and FLV. I can also publish my video optimized for YouTube or otherwise I can also make a standalone executable which can play my video without any media player.
I would highly recommend this tool to all the professionals who do screen casting and screen recording regularly.
