There are countless options available in the market, but finding the perfect balance is the way to go.
Today. we have the Movavi Screen Recorder for review; one of the best screen recording software available on the market that is able to capture everything on your computer’s screen with a great output as well.
Movavi has made sure that the software is suitable for people with all level of knowledge, and despite having some advanced features, I found the software to be easy to use. As far as the features are concerned, let’s look at them below.
Movavi Screen Recorder Features
A good feature set is very important for any screen recording software. Considering how many people make their decisions based on the features that are being provided to them, making it even more important. Some of the highlights of the Movavi screen and audio recorder can be checked out below.
- Capture either the full screen or the selected area with audio as well.
- The software has a long list of video, audio, and image formats supported.
- You can record the audio from different sources such as the video itself, microphone, or a different device.
- You can do schedule recording as well if you have somewhere to go, and you want to record a stream while you are away.
- There is an option to edit, and compress videos according to your needs.
- The software works on Windows 10 and goes all the way to older versions as well.
Using the Movavi Screen Recorder
When it comes to using a screen recording software, the one complaint I have heard time and again from people is that the software is difficult to use, or there are too many options to check out. Thankfully, this is not the case with Movavi Screen Recorder, as it happens to be one of the easiest software to use.
Below is the full tutorial that will teach you how to do it.
- Launch the Movavi Screen Recorder once you have downloaded and installed it from this link.
- Once the software is up and running, you will be presented with options such as capture screen, record audio, and edit video. Click on the capture screen and you will be brought to the screen shown below On the left pane, you see the place where you can select the capture area, the middle one gives you the option to select the audio source, and the right one is for the recording itself.
- Once you hit the recording button, the recording will start from that point, and that is about it. Once the recording completes, you will be prompted if you want to edit the video or not. If you do choose the option to edit the video, you will be brought to the screen shown in the picture below
From the screen shown above, you can choose how to edit the video, and things will be good to go. Other than that, I do not think there is anything intricate about using the Movavi screen recorder because my experience was smooth sailing because everything about the software was self-explanatory.
However, keep in mind that you might need to do some tinkering around in the video editor to be able to use it to its full potential because there are some intricate nooks and crannies that had me looking for answers.
Ever since I have become a reviewer, the number of screen recording software that I have used is beyond my understanding. Some experiences have been great, while others, not so much. The only thing I can say at this moment is that the perfect is flooding with all sorts of programs that promise excellent screen recording but fall short of one thing or another.
My expectations with the Movavi Screen Recorder were along the same line, but after spending 7 days (the entire trial period) I am glad my thoughts were changed to a point that I ended up buying the full software. There are a lot of things I like about Movavi Screen Recorder, and thankfully, not many things that I am against.
Still, for the detailed understanding of things I am favor of, and things I am not, check out the thoughts below.
