Have you ever wondered how youtubers clearly shows what is happening on their computer screen while sharing their tutorials? That is with the help of screen casting softwares. Screencasts will help you to demonstrate or teach software features and also helps software developers to show off their works.
If you’re looking for best screencasting softwares to show off of your works and tutorials you came to right place. First of all let me show you some best screen casting softwares in my opinion, there are also several other screencasting software for various platform you can search them in Google.
- Camtasia Studio
- AVS Video Editor
- Camstudio (Open Source)
It is one of the most powerful screen casting tools mostly recommended by youtubers. Camtasia comes handly with perfect video editor for screen captured videos and it also has automated zoom and pan with 3D tilting. It is the product of techsmith and they provides full video tutorial how to use Camtasia Studio. Currently it costs $299 for single user, you can also use their free trial with some restrictions.
Screen flow is a best tool for many MAC users. It elegantly designed, easy to use and powerful screen recording and video editing program for Mac. It cost $99 you can also use free trial.
It is also one of the powerful screen casting tool which comes up handly with cool video editor, most people don’t know about AVS is exist? Any one who have basic computer knowledge can use AVS Video editor. It cost only $199 for unlimited usage or $69 per year and you don’t need to pay for upgrades.
Jing is also a product from techsmith. It widely used for screen capturing and screen casting. Jing is completely free of cost with simple UI. t also has some limitations: you can’t record webcams, you can’t record for more than 5 minutes, it only publishes videos in .swf format which won’t supported by many devices and mostly it doesn’t have video editing tool.
Don’t confuse with camtasia studio and camstudio both are different brands. Camstudio is an opensource software and looks very simple and you don’t need to spend money to use Camstudio. It allows you to record all screen and audio activity on your computer and create industry-standard AVI video files. I don’t usually recommend it. But if you don’t want spend single penny for screen casting software you can use Camstudio.
The above mentioned screencasting tools are rated based on my opinion. This may vary according to the users how they use it, which platform they are using, how much time they spend on it, which video editing software they prefer and how professional and fancy you want to screencast your video. So we can’t say which is best and which is worst.
