Record exactly what you see on the screen and turn it into a screencast in next to no time. Screenium 3 lets you record at 60 frames per second, offering optimum performance for your tutorials, gameplay recordings or any other screen content you wish to record. If you work with an ultra-high resolution 4K or 5K display or a Retina Mac, Screenium 3 puts you on the safe side as it creates the smoothest video quality possible for these types of devices.

But Screenium 3 offers much more than ultra-smooth video capture. Take advantage of numerous convenient tools that will help you create your perfect screencast. For example, you can embed iSight-footage as a Picture-in-Picture clip, add audio comments or hide your desktop or desktop symbols during recording. Screenium also records the mouse pointer as a separate track so you can visualize mouse clicks or edit them at a later point without any hassle.

Screenium's comfortable and powerful video editor provides you with all the tools you need to cut your footage, embed texts or add effects, transitions, or animations. Accentuate mouse clicks, add geometric shapes or hide screen sections that contain personal information. Of course you can also edit audio tracks and add filters to them. Using text synthesis, you can even add multilingual audio comments or auto-generated voice tracks.

Freezes the Screen While Recording


I have been using Screenium for about 2 years and now it has not been updated since Oct 2016. When doing long screen recordings it has been freezing the frame, while continuing to record my voice and mouse gestures. So when I view the video I can see the frozen fram for the last ten minutes of the full recording. This has to be updated and fixed. I really hope they have the money to hire their developer to fix this issue and update the app.

One step forward, two steps back...


I have been using Screenium since version 1 to prepare tutorials for our softwares. Overall, this software does the job, capture your screen or a portion of it, with multiple audio tracks.
My problem is the features that are constantly removed as new versions came up. First, in Screenium 2 you can’t choose the video codec nor where to store the videos, quite annoying if you were in 2012 using the some older versions of SSD drives as your boot disk…. but thats history, that setting is back now.
Now, with Screenium 3 your screen captures are in some propietary format that you need to export before been able to use it in your favorite video editor. This means one extra step and up to 15 minutes for a 10 min video (on my i5 processor). Finally, that red frame that used to be there, since Screenium 1, when you where capturing a portion of your screen.. is gone, so you need to find out another way to know which portion of the screen you are recording. Also, hotkeys for “Pause” and “Add Chapter Mark” are gone, so is the “Mouse Area” recording mode.

Update (3.0.1): Export is faster now.. thats all, still no red frame.

Really loving this app!

I was hesitant to try Screenium because of the mediocre reviews, but I’m SO glad I did. I was frustrated with the complexity of Screenflow and Camtasia and wanted something that was easier to navigate. Screenium is very intuitive and I am able to create screencasts quickly with no guessing re: what quality will be exported.

I emailed support at 2am because I was having an issue with exports. In less than an hour, I got an email back with a patched version (the App Store version should be updated soon) and was able to meet my project deadline. That alone sold me on Screenium even moreso than the simple UI. I highly recommend this app if you just need to record good quality screencasts without a ton of options (though there are plenty of options for adding animations, text, etc.).
