CNet: Screencast Software For Making Movies Of A PC Screen

CNet compares four inexpensive tools for easily making movies from what happens on a PC screen: Camtasia Studio, My Screen Recorder, TipCam and Jing


“There are likely a dozen reasons for a person to record the goings-on of his or her computer screen–such as a product demo, tutorial, or even a cry for help. Whatever your impetus, you’ll need tools of the trade, such as the four we’ve picked out here.

Camtasia Studio ($29) may cause the most significant drain to your wallet, but its comprehensive video editor also creates impressive, professional-grade results. Despite a learning curve, the tutorials and refurbished design should keep it from overwhelming new users in need of the app’s high production values. My Screen Recorder is a midrange option for creating screencasts you can narrate. A preview feature lets you review your movies, but the app lacks Camtasia Studio’s polish and editing prowess. Even so, that will be just fine for plenty of folks.”
