Telestream ScreenFlow 2.0 Screencasting Software Now Available
Professional-quality screencasting toolkit adds direct publishing to YouTube, a full range of 2D and 3D transitions, clip speed adjustments, editing enhancements and more
Nevada City, Calif., October 26, 2009 – Telestream today announced availability of a major 2.0 release for its award-winning ScreenFlow screencasting studio software for the Mac. ScreenFlow 2.0 customers can now export and upload SD and HD screencasts directly to YouTube. A full range of new 2D and 3D transitions allow users to add elegant effects to their video productions. Version 2.0 also offers more control over editing, video speed adjustments, audio level adjustments, keyboard shortcuts, the creation of document packages and much more.
“The best just got better,” reports Paul McGovern, lecturer in media/digital applications. “ScreenFlow 2.0 is the perfect evolution in screencast development. It really is the one stop shop for all things screencast.” David Chartier, Chief Media Producer for Agile Web Solutions adds, “ScreenFlow 2.0 takes a good app and makes it great.”
ScreenFlow is a cost-effective software toolkit that makes it easy for software developers, trainers, educators, and bloggers to capture, edit and create professional-quality screen recordings and video tutorials for the web. The four-time award winning screencasting software is useful for the creation of training and promotional video tutorials that enhance learning experiences, presentations and product demonstrations.
According to screencast producer Chris Beiting, “ScreenFlow is the secret weapon for my business. Version 2.0 makes my work faster and easier than ever before.”
ScreenFlow 2.0 includes a full range of 2D and 3D transitions such as page curl, ripple, spin, flash, cube, swipe, cross dissolve and more. Users simply push transitions together on a timeline, where they can control the time and speed of their transitions. Direct publishing to YouTube from within the screencast application is a new feature that saves users time and effort when uploading and sharing finished productions either publicly or with authorized viewers. Editing enhancements include the ability to adjust clip speed as well as to freeze a single frame of video and adjust the audio pace.
“ScreenFlow 2.0 sets the standard for Mac screencasting apps with elegant design, smooth workflow, and exceptional results,” says Scott Skibell at skillcasting.com. “Screencasting will never be the same.”
The new audio ducking feature automatically lowers one audio when a second audio begins – for example, lowering the background music when a voiceover begins and automatically leveling it back up when the talking stops. ScreenFlow 2.0 adds the ability to detach audio from a video clip, so that audio and video can be edited independently. New keyboard shortcuts for pausing, recording, zooming and resizing make ScreenFlow’s powerful editing capabilities even faster. Creation of document packages streamlines workflows by allowing users to store all their clips and other media within a single package. Version 2.0 also allows users to copy and paste clips between documents which saves time and effort.
"ScreenFlow 2.0 raises the bar on pro-level screencasting," said Chuck Joiner, Producer/Host at MacVoices. Listen to MacVoices ScreenFlow 2.0 interview with Barbara DeHart, Telestream VP of Marketing.
In addition to these and other new features, customers who purchase ScreenFlow 2.0 screencasting software between now and the end of 2009 will receive a free copy of Telestream’s Flip4Mac WMV Studio (a $49 value) which allows users to export Windows Media content directly from within the ScreenFlow screencast application for playback in Windows Media Player.
ScreenFlow 2.0 ($99) is now available for a free trial and online purchase and the V2.0 upgrade ($29) is now available for online purchase at www.telestream.net/screenflow. ScreenFlow is also available for purchase through a network of Telestream resellers and affiliates.
