MacMost Now 457: Screen Recording With Snapz Pro

One option for screen captures and recording is Snapz Pro. It offers more options than the standard capture ability in Mac OS X, such as being able to follow the cursor around and record anything on the screen. It comes with a high price tag, however.

    Very interesting, I do need a way to organize my daily screenshots. Can Snapz Pro record YouTube videos? Thanks–

      Yes, I suppose it can. But that is like making a copy of a copy. The quality won’t be very good. Depending on why you need the video, there are better solutions — like seeing if the video is available for download by the creator.

    I am using an App called ScreenFlow for screen recording it does a great job without the huge file sizes generated by Snapz Pro. The YouTube Downloader extension for Safari is the best tool I’ve found for “ripping” videos from YouTube.

    Can it be used in iPad2 or any recommendations?

      No, this is about a Mac program. Screen recording on the iPad is much harder and more expensive. See http://macmost.com/ipad-video-screen-capture.html

        My variant. What settings should I use for creating the video file on the Mac that will result in a file format that can be directly moved and viewed on my iPad. I’ve tried a few but not yet found the magic.

          iMovie and FCPX both have export settings for the iPad. I think QuickTime Player does too. I’d try exporting something from them, and then get info on it, then try to mimic those settings. But for the best results, do a small video and experiment.

            I can convert with Toast but would prefer just to create something uniformly useful out of SnapZ Pro X. I’ll keep experimenting.

            Thanks.
