Excellent Functionality at a Great Value
Screen Cast-Screen Recorder is an excellent application. Without any training, I was quickly able to install and start developing a screen cast for my small engineering company. I was able to record my presentation of a powerpoint brief for use by one of my colleagues at an upcoming conference. I prepared two versions of the screencast. The first was an audio version of the brief. I recorded my voice using the display microphone as I presented each slide. As a test, I was also able to use the built-in microphone in my Apple earpods and even with record my voice using the microphone in my older plug-in ear phones. I prepared a second version of the presentation with a audio-video recording of myself. You can place the presenter’s video box anywhere on the screeen and dynamically move it as you record. In both instances, I completed the task seamlessly and was very happy with the result. The file is saved in .mov format and can be shared and stored directly from your desktop. A very nice feature is the ability to adjust the resolution of the saved presentation from 2560 x 1440 down to 1280 x 720 with the additional option of chosing frame rates of 60-15 fps. As you select the resolution, you will immediately see a display of the final file size, ensuring the file is tailored for the appropriate medium. So, in conclusion, without any accessories or instructions, you can be up and runnning in minutes. This application is a bargain.
Easy to use and effective
Just purchased this. Easy to use. Be sure to give screencast permissions in System Prefs > Securty and Privacy > Screen Recording > Screencast. After that I was easily able to record and to include my face in a small window (located where I want it) in the video. I'm an educator now being asked to teaching online due to the coronavirus. Thank you to the developers.
Functions well, but color and support problems
This app works well once it’s set up and started. However, the window background is a very dark gray and the text is black. I’m getting up there in age and I just can’t see the text. When I pointed this out to the developer I was advised to change my system wide contrast settings. When I pointed out that I don’t have a problem with the other apps that I use and only need to change the colors of their app, I was told (after almost two weeks of silence) that there is no way to change the text color. I’m no app developer, but I can’t imagine that it would be all that difficult to make the text white or lighten up the background. Who in the world thinks it’s okay to put dark text against a dark background in the first place? Weird… I’ll be looking for something else.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
