- Quicktime Player, which is included with MacOS, includes a screen record feature that allows you to capture iphone, ipad, and your Mac. There are simple editing tools included that allow you to split, trim, cut & paste, and rotate too.
- I've tried like 20+ recording apps and finally found the right mix of features and simplicity with ScreenFlow. Besides basic recording it has a plenty of features like mix multiple video clips and audios into single video, highlight part of the screen or mouse cursor, caption editor, add annotations and text, GIF export, publish to Youtube, Wistia or Vimeo... and more!
Before Loom, sharing a video of a product bug was a daunting tasks. You would need to either use Quicktime on Mac or some other complicated software to record your screen (maybe if your lucky the audio would work) and that would give you a big old 500+ MB video file for a decent sized video. At this point you lose faith since you need to share this and it's not getting any smaller even if you try all the compression tricks. You end up uploading it for a half hour to G Drive and send a link to your co-worker... Now you can literally click the Chrome extension, click start, record and then share. DONE.
I do site development meaning I design sewers and set the finished grade. Sometimes the client wants to see what things will look like as we’re working. Autocad doesn’t allow you to export your object viewer (where you see things in 3D) so we used to export to sketch-up and it took hours to tinker and get things to look how they did before exporting. We rarely did it because of how long it took. Now we do it often to show clients that want to be more involved in the design but cant visualize what we put in paper as well. Slowly becoming a powerful tool to help us serve our clients.
- There are various free screen recorders available for Mac but most of them don't allow you to record webcam video along with screen recording and editing annotations.QuickTime Player, Monosnap, Icecream Screen Recorder (Free Version) and Jing are the best in free offerings as they features so many customization and editing option with annotations. But if you are going to do a professional video recording for business presentation and Tutorials then go for Snagit or Comtasia. I found this article on best screen recorder for Mac- http://www.hawkdive.com/2017/08/... which has put all the best and free recorder together very nicely with pictures and YouTube video.
