Create videos and GIFs in minutes. Claquette is the easiest way to capture, edit and convert videos and GIFs on your Mac.
Crop and trim video files. Convert them to GIFs. Or create a new video by recording your screen, system audio, microphone and camera.
Creating and editing videos becomes as easy as handling images - Working with video doesn't have to feel heavy.

• Record your Mac's screen, system audio (requires macOS Ventura), microphone and camera
• Visualize mouse clicks and drags
• Tweak the recorder settings to optimize for quality, speed or file size
• Capture video and audio from iPhones or iPads connected to your Mac
• Use your iPhone as an external camera with Continuity Camera (requires macOS Ventura)
• Import video or GIF files

• Crop your video to only show relevant portions
• Trim away unwanted sections from the start and end
• Resize videos by using built-in presets or by defining custom sizes

• Turn your videos into optimized animated GIFs or PNGs
• Make your videos smaller by converting them to the modern HEVC format
• Export your recordings to high-quality ProRes videos
• Use the share menu to distribute your content via Mail, Messages or any available sharing extension
• Send a layered export to Final Cut Pro X or Motion 5 (available via In-App Purchase)

Create compelling video tutorials or screencasts to reach your online audience in a more personal way. Use short videos to promote and sell your products or create animated GIFs to enhance your social media posts. Animated GIFs are also great for designers and developers to communicate issues in projects or to create meaningful bug reports.

Additionally, Claquette can be integrated into your professional video editing workflow by upgrading to Claquette Pro. This unlocks exporters for Apple’s Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5. Visit our product page to learn more about all features.

Provides good value but performance could be improved

I bought Claquette because I was looking for a versatile tool that would help me create videos, either for instructional purposes or for recording high-value sessions with others.
Overall, the feature set is really good. The tool does what it is supposed to do and without errors. However, the performance both in terms of required storage size, time needed to save a session and especially the time needed to export a recorded session to a compact and exchangeable format like AAC really needs improvement!
Typically, the session size is about 100 GB for a recording that takes about 10-15 minutes. This prevents me from record interactive sessions with colleagues that take 30 minutes or more.
Also, the time needed to convert an 80 GB session to a mp4 file takes usually 10 or more minutes.
I have got an iMac with 8 cores and a powerful GPU with 8GB RAM. However, Claquette seems to utilize at most one CPU core and hardly stresses the GPU during the conversion process.
PLEASE, work on performance improvements before you add yet another feature. This is the only aspect that is suboptimal about Claquette at the moment!!!

Developer Response ,

Hi MathGenJ,
Thanks for purchasing Claquette and for your review!
You can reduce the file size during recording by choosing the "Performance" or "Size" presets in the recording window (in the "Capture content of" popup button). We also provide recording presets where you can further optimize the size of the recorded content. (e.g. by downscaling the resolution during recording). You can find those presets in the "Display" preferences. If you have further questions, please contact us via "Help" -> "Request Support" in the main menu of the app. With kind regards, Thomas

Ich muss leider eine Alternative zu diesem Programm suchen, denn ich finde die Handhabung sperrig, es stürzt ab, es ist einfach nicht zuverlässig.

Und das Icon sieht unendlich dröge in Launchpad aus :(
