Record. Edit. Share.

Telestream ScreenFlow® is award-winning screen recording and video editing software designed exclusively for macOS. With high-quality screen, video, audio, and iOS capture, exceptionally powerful editing features as well as a new Stock Media Library option*, ScreenFlow helps you create incredible looking videos, animated GIFs, and APNGs with unprecedented ease. You won’t find an easier to use or more intuitive interface for editing video.

ScreenFlow can record any part of your screen, or the entire monitor, while also capturing your camera, iPad or iPhone, microphone or multi-channel audio interface and your computer’s audio – all at the same time! ScreenFlow enables the best full-screen, high-resolution screen capture with brilliant detail, while keeping file sizes low. Then you can zoom in on key areas during your video to give even better detail for your audience.

ScreenFlow has won the prestigious Apple Design award for its easy-to-use editing interface, updated once again to offer even more ease of use. The editor instantly loads your recorded video and audio sources and lets you dive-in to quickly and creatively edit your video. Easily add additional images, recordings, clips, text, audio, other video files, and more to create awesome-looking videos.

Then polish it with professional-level animations. Add zoom and pan effects with video actions, highlight your mouse or anything on screen with callouts, draw on-screen with annotations or make your text pop with animated text effects. Also, nested clips, closed captioning, chroma key, and video motions such as spring, gravity, pulse, are just a few of the touches that make ScreenFlow editing easy and powerful.

New SF8… a Stock Media Library option*. Bring in motion backgrounds, lower thirds, titles, transitions, professional intros and outros, stock video content, royalty-free backing audio, and more. Unlike most stock media databases, you won’t pay per piece of media…just one incredibly low price for a year-long subscription!

When you are done, use the built-in sharing to publish your video directly to Vimeo, YouTube, Wistia, Facebook, Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, or Imgur. You can also export an animated GIF or APNG, ProRes file or MP4 directly to your desktop to be used anywhere.
ScreenFlow makes exporting easy with automatic export options. If you want to have more control, multiple export options can be customized to your exact specifications.

Exceptional - “It Just Works"

This is an incredible piece of class leading software, and I have been amazed by how well it works. Screenflow 8 allows you to record everything going on inside and outside of your Mac with ease. Regardless as to whether you’d like to record your screen, internal or external mics, Screenflow 8 has you covered. What’s more, it’s even able to record from your FaceTime camera - all at the same time. Simply set the options that you wish to record, hit record, and get on with your tutorials. As a professional videographer and editor, I had no problems creating a FCPX tutorial for a fellow friend; importing my created video into FCPX and adding my external audio from my shotgun microphone (as opposed to the internal mic from my Mac).

Sometimes on the AppStore, we’re left with pieces of software that are cumbersome and frequently broken, but Screenflow 8 gives you a wealth of tools to do everything you need within the app and works faultlessly. Although I’m new to the software, I can see that you could do everything that you wanted within Screenflow 8 - without the need for FCPX or any other NLE, so it’s really a great buy, even at this price point. Purchasing through the AppStore is also cheaper than purchasing through Telestream’s site, which is another great bonus.

I’m still getting to grips with Screenflow 8, but my first tutorial is completed and I didn’t need to follow a single tutorial. If you would like to create your own tutorial or videogame recordings, then Screenflow 8 is an easy recommendation.
