Screenium 3 4+
Synium Software GmbH
Record exactly what you see on the screen and turn it into a screencast in next to no time. Screenium 3 lets you record at 60 frames per second, offering optimum performance for your tutorials, gameplay recordings or any other screen content you wish to record. If you work with an ultra-high resolution 4K or 5K display or a Retina Mac, Screenium 3 puts you on the safe side as it creates the smoothest video quality possible for these types of devices.
But Screenium 3 offers much more than ultra-smooth video capture. Take advantage of numerous convenient tools that will help you create your perfect screencast. For example, embed FaceTime camera footage as a Picture-in-Picture clip, add audio comments or hide your desktop or desktop symbols during recording. Screenium also records keystrokes and the mouse pointer as separate tracks so you can visualize pressed keys and mouse clicks or edit them at a later point without any hassle.
Screenium's comfortable and powerful video editor provides you with all the tools you need to cut your footage, embed texts or add effects, transitions, or animations. Accentuate mouse clicks, add geometric shapes or hide screen sections that contain personal information. Of course you can also edit audio tracks and add filters. Using text synthesis, you can even add multilingual audio comments or auto-generated voice tracks.

Ratings and Reviews
Good capture, exports could be better
The video capture works really well, at resolutions and frame sizes Apple's built in screen capture starts to buckle under. Performace is really good, even on older Macs.
I would like to see better options for exports however. For HEVC or h.264, you get only a simple bitrate slider. No options for CRF, two pass, or variable bitrate control. As it is, you can export to Prores and then compress with Handbrake, but that's an extra step.
vs. Screenflow and Camtasia...
Have licesenses to almost everything that records a screen. Big part of my workflow. Grew up using Camtasia on Windows, over a decade at this point. Camtasia 2020 is a decent recorder, outstanding editor on both platforms (but weaker on the Mac). But, in terms of codecs, quality of compression, and output, I would rate it the weakest of these three, on the Mac. If I am animating or annotating, this remains my fave of the 3. No HEVC though. Boo.
Screenflow 9.0.3 is a solid little product, much more tightly coded from a native OS X perspective. It captures and outputs very well, but have never quite liked it much as an editor. I usually just output and dump in to DaVinci resolve Studio. It's only $100 or so per year, but this is likely my last year updating.
Screenium 3 has made huge leaps since I purchased 3 years ago. Intuitive little interface, tightly integrated with the OS. I use Screenium for one thing, capture and output. I do not edit in it, although you could if it was all you had. I do not animate, annotate or do anything but capture. But, WOW, it absolutely rocks in terms of quality and control. The best of breed, for screen capture and screen output on the Mac, IMHO. Fast, and the developer really keeps up with new OS and OS X beta releases. Well, worth the money, IF, you edit in other programs.
I just bought this after researching, so that i can record a very important video conference. Went to play it for my colleague and NO audio. Is this too much information to relay, when selling it?! I'm demanding a full-refund, rather than download a stupid add-on (free) that I have to track for updates... it's just stupid. They need to come from a customer perspective when advertizing... or designing, for that matter. I mean, seriously?!!!!! No audio. Hmmmmm... maybe I should get another program, or maybe I'd be more open to downloading a free piece of additional software to get the audio. Fact is, I wouldve just started an audio recording on Quicktime and dropped it in later. What a dissappointment that they were NOT thinking of the Average Customer. People that do screen recording for a living already have the knoweledge that they didnt share, or at least they'd know to look. I mean, it's sold on apple store and it doesnt record audio, unless you want to speak into microphone for overlay... oh, gee... why wasnt' i told before I lost the whole video conference?
Developer Response ,
Jim, the first time Screenium is launched, it displays a hint that our free audio driver needs to be installed to record system audio. Then, when selecting the audio sources to capture, another hint is displayed. For technical reasons it is impossible to ship the audio driver with Screenium. This is true for all screen recorders on the App Store.
