Didn't really know in which topic to put this.
I'm looking for a good screencapture software for video.
The project I am about to start has evolved and will take into acount the COVID situation.
I will be making videos of the dicussions and stories with the screen capture software.
I will then edit these in FCX. I'm aiming for hight quality when this is possible.
Project is 1080 HD but will probably use some cropped footage.
I don't control the video tools of the participants...and neither the phones.
Film is then edited, animation is added, photos etc...
Any suggestions for a screen capture software that you have tried is welcome.
Record with ScreenFlow. Edit any specific ScreenFlow FX such as any unique Callouts and Actions that can't be replicated in FCPX. Then export the flavor of ProRes you want (including 4x4 with Alpha if you need to use transparency) and then edit in FCPX.
ScreenFlow has features not possible with Quicktime screen recording. It can record screen region or record multiple monitors simultaneous if you have such a setup. Actions allow independent control of cursor size and replacement. It can also highlight a foreground program and blur the rest of the screen recording background. These would be difficult to do in FCPX.
I am trying it out at the moment.
Works very well. This project evolved into using screenvideo because of the COVID situation where we meed to talk to many elders. It is an interesting challenge for the film concept.
Yes I allready have that. Thank you.
Screenflow works fine. The challenge I'm referring to is getting rid of my face when I do
an interview with someone else using Facetime. I only have this using facetime
on my iMac desktop.
I can get rid of my face if I use iPhone ou iPad.
My iphone is not recent enough to test. Is it possible to use Sidecar to view my iPhone on my iMac?
Yes. I thought about that and tried it.
It plays with the proportions and the ratio is not very interesting.
Also constrains even more the movement of the guest.
Since resolution is always a problem for these recordings I'm trying not to enlarge more than needed.
I've done tons and tons of these for my TV station. I use Zoom, as its record function gives me amazing quality video, and individual audio stems so I can adjust each person's audio independently. Nothing I've found is easier nor better quality.
