Being able to record videos from a computer screen is extremely useful for bloggers who want to create video content. Not only is it the perfect way to record and produce how-to guides and tutorials, but you can also record Skype interviews, demonstrations and other types of content. I have never been a huge video person in the past, as I prefer content. But I am trying to challenge myself this year and dive into some video! This includes screen recordings and even some YouTube. Today I want to do a quick overview of Movavi’s screen capture for Mac tool.
Movavi Screen Capture for Mac
First off, if you haven’t heard of them before, Movavi has actually been around since 2004. It was a small startup by three enthusiasts and has now grown into an international business with over 100 employees. They sell all types of photo, video, and editing software for both Mac and PC. Their headquarters is in Saint Louis, Missouri, USA.
I normally cover PC software, but today it will be Macs! For bloggers on Macs who want to produce such content, Movavi Screen Capture for Mac tool will prove to be an invaluable tool. Because of how easy and intuitive it is, recording videos will be a piece of cake – and it will even provide a built-in video editor that can be used to tweak and improve videos so that they look professional.
As mentioned, Movavi Screen Capture Studio’s features extend to both recordings as well as editing videos. Some these standout, such as its capability to:
- Easily define the area of your screen that you want to record by drawing a frame with the mouse cursor and adjusting it or using the presets in the list.
- Control all the recording parameters including the audio source, sound levels, frame rate, and whether or not to record keystrokes and mouse actions.
- Schedule the recording in advance to automatically start and stop at a certain time, or use the timer to stop it after a particular duration.
- Grab screenshots at any point during the recording.
- Enhance the video quality with a single click or fix common issues such as blurry, shaky or interlaced video footage.
- Split the video into segments to get rid of unwanted parts or rearrange its sequence.
