Much like Procaster does for a hoard of live streaming, video-blogging, PC users, ScreenFlow 2.0 now gives the gift of video screen capture to the mass of Macheads in the world. The newest version of the screen capturing software gives easy access to YouTube publishing, advanced editing and more.The new ScreenFlow not only allows easy upload and direct publish of screencasts to YouTube but also adds advanced editing capabilities and new transitions across clips. Packaged along with the software, for free, is the Flip4Mac WMV Studio allowing users to export straight to WMV from ScreenFlow.
"ScreenFlow has been the recipient of four prestigious innovation awards to date. There's no doubt that we changed the game in video screen capture when we released this product over a year ago," said Barbara DeHart, VP of Marketing at Telestream. "We are committed to continuing the innovation that products such as ScreenFlow and Flip4Mac bring to millions of Mac enthusiasts worldwide. We think they will be as excited as we are with the YouTube and advanced editing capabilities, plus even more format support.”
Like Procaster, ScreenFlow records the user's desktop in video form along with sound, this could give some serious boost to those Mac-based video bloggers, entertainers and educators. You can highlight portions of the screen, add effects, show keystrokes and even slip in other existing media. Plus there's a great post production timeline that allows for further editing of the video before publishing.
Editing capabilities include:
- Adjusting the speed of clips
- New 2D and 3D transitions include page-curl, ripple, flash, swipe, cross-dissolve, dip to black or white, and more.
- Easier accessing, movement and management of stored project files in document packages.
- New keyboard shortcuts for resizing the timeline
