Having the ability to record interaction on your digital screen can prove to be a quite valuable tool, regardless if you’re working from a personal or professional standpoint. There are countless screen recording apps available out there, and this might confuse users when it’s time to choose one. However, Tipard Screen Capture aims at offering a minimalist, streamlined solution, which although is simple enough, does retain all the essential features for consistent performance.
The application features a well-designed interface, which prioritizes handling efficiency, through a series of thoughtful features. For instance, the selection for the main recording process is done using a set of large, discernible buttons, one for each of the different formats.
Furthermore, returning to the selection process is also easy, since once you’ve entered a particular mode, a handy menu will allow you to enter another, without having to return to the main interface.
Each recording type has a lot of tweaking available, starting with the really precise screen area selection, and ending with output settings, or, even basic edits before file saving. Even more so, one can also perform exclusion selections, setting particular areas of the screen, which are to be ignored.
If you’ve lost track of your screen capturing process, a handy library will log all your previous attempts, and we believe that this is a really useful feature, especially when running multiple, iterative captures.
Don’t be fooled by this app’s minimalist looks, thanks to an elegantly packed set of tools, it manages to provide excellent screen capturing performance, regardless if you’re into video, audio, or image format.

On the bright side, each of these two basic commands has a key combination assigned, which one can use to control the workflow better. However, these hotkeys cannot be changed, which is unfortunate.

Create video of on-screen activity from any application running on your computer with the help of this professional solution for recording and sharing clips.
The Internet is filled with tutorials and all kinds of videos in which the uploaders record some activity on their desktop, leaving their viewers wondering about the tools they used to create the tutorials in the first place. The most powerful software solution that can do such a thing is called Camtasia and works on any Windows version out there.
The application will take a while to download, since the setup kit has almost 200 MB, and to install, because there are a lot of files to be copied on your computer.
The interface seems overwhelming at first sight, since it throws all kinds of tools to the user, but this is precisely the way functions are typically organized in such a powerful application.
When starting a new recording, users get the chance to choose if they are interested in the desktop (either full screen, or a custom region) or PowerPoint. Once complete, the user can preview the recording and choose if they want to keep it or begin another one.
The recording process goes incredibly smooth and although one would expect such an application to be a bit heavy on computer resources, Camtasia works fine. In fact, this is a mandatory thing because Camtasia thus leaves resources to other applications whose activity on the screen must be recorded.
Once the source video is captured, users can add callouts, audio effects, transitions, cursor effects and title clips along with voice narration and picture-in-picture functions. Each of these features might initially take some time getting used to, but the output is worth every minute spent experimenting.
The timeline is a handy tool that serves as an overview of the items added so far to the project, and adjusting the timing of each of them is as easy as moving a slider.
In order to finalize the project, one can export it to an archive, a SWF video or upload it directly to YouTube, depending on one's needs.
As a conclusion, the price tag Camtasia wears might not seem that exaggerated given its complex functions. Users simply need to give it a try and see how it works, and they just might end up being pleasantly surprised.
