Telestream Announces ScreenFlow 5.0 Screen Recording and Editing Software

Posted about 1 month ago by Simon Day - Posted in General

Targeted at the recreational and amateur creators, who are not video editors by profession, ScreenFlow 5.0 brings several new features such as direct recording from iOS devices, enhanced ease of use, improved media management, and new publishing options.

A powerful screen recording and video editing application for the Mac, ScreenFlow allows educators, app developers and marketers to create high-quality, computer-based tutorial and demo videos and covers all 3 vital aspects of the production process:  

Record: Records content from anywhere, including webcams, external cameras, PC desktops and now iOS devices.
Edit: Includes an advanced, intuitive editor for both recorded content and clips.  You will be able to easily edit your videos, as well as insert captions, titles, transitions, zooms, picture-in-picture, and chroma key effects. 

Share: Equipped with many integrated publishing options to share content with just a few clicks of the mouse.

These capabilities, along with ScreenFlow’s award-winning design means anyone can create polished, professional-looking video easily and affordably.  Whether they’re producing an online training course, capturing game play, or making a video for that next big idea or product, ScreenFlow is built to communicate their message effectively.

ScreenFlow 5.0 adds the functionality to record directly from an iOS device (iPhone or iPad) and adds new “Touch Callouts” that reveal finger gestures to help guide viewers. Action templates let users save popular actions for repeated use. Color labels on clips and clip-based markers help keep users organized, and iPhoto and iTunes libraries are now accessible from ScreenFlow’s Media Library.
When it’s time to export the finished piece, the new App Preview export option ensures files adhere to Apple’s specifications for Preview on the Mac App Store.  Additionally, ScreenFlow 5.0 saves users time by allowing them to batch export multiple projects at the same time, as well as publish directly to the popular business video-hosting platform, Wistia.

"Many of the new features in ScreenFlow 5.0 were developed from direct requests from our loyal customer base,” said Barbara DeHart, vice president of desktop business at Telestream. “As a result, recording directly from an iOS device and direct publishing to Wistia were key development goals for this new release.”

Additional features in ScreenFlow 5.0:

- Recording monitor

- Ability to add markers while recording

- Rolling edits

- Import SRT files

- Native support for MPEG Transport Stream/AVCHD file format

- Customized recording frame rate

- Telestream Media Framework (TMF) for enhanced playback and performance

Telestream have said that ScreenFlow 5.0 will be available in early November.
