For my post on Social Business Cards I included a screenshot walking through my new website along including inline video (picture-in-picture) from my iSight camera. TJ asked what software I used, so I thought I’d elaborate on how I created this screencast. Screenflow is a kickass application for doing screencasts on a Mac. I’ve used Camtasia, Jing, and other applications before but ScreenFlow was by far the best solution. I purchased ScreenFlow for use in the membership website I am putting together, among other things, and have loved it ever since – although this is the first video I’ve actually published.
- Record from desktop, iSight, video camera, microphone, and computer’s audio AT THE SAME TIME
- Full editing studio
- Video Actions, Callouts, Audio Actions, etc
- 3D video positioning
- VERY easy narration of presentations
- High quality exporting
ScreenFlow also won the Best Mac OSX Leopard Application and Best Mac OSX Leopard Graphics and Media Application at The Apple Design Awards 2008.
You can download a fully functional demo of ScreenFlow here. You can do everything that the paid app can do – except the movies that are exported have a watermark. The application is $99 for the full version and worth every cent. Pick it up here. And guess what – they have a full library of screencasts on how to use their Screencast Studio…
