Works great, BUT...
It has a few issues… For example, it doesn’t have any internal sound capture, but that’s no big issue. My main problem with this software, is it completely moves the screen over in the recording, and replaces the space from the moved screen with a big ugly green bar taking up recording space, making it not only so I can’t capture everything in my screen, but also effectivly causing some lag in the final rendering. It records pretty good, it gets a 24-35 FPS capture rate and seems to have no issues with motion or anything else. Besides these bugs that need to be fixed, it’s a good software, but not GREAT.
It is an app that does exactly what I need it to do, however there are a few problems. I am using a retina macbook pro and I have an issue of a green bar on the right side of the screen, and when recording on a second screen, the colors are inverted on some parts of the screen. As for suggestions, they need to add computer audio recording. If fixed, will be worth my 4.99.
Excellent Application - Everything It's Supposed To Be
