It's the battle of the social media titans. LOL, JK. Facebook unveiled some rather interesting stuff today if you like searching among your friends for plumbers or Grateful Dead fans (you probably know who, right?) and making calls to your Facebook friends. And on the other hand, former player MySpace is letting itself be used by Justin Timberlake to launch his new album. Heck, they're probably paying him. What a gig. So what else happened that wasn't about social media? Let's have a peek.
ScreenFlow is hands-down the best application for recording a "screencast," or a video of your Mac's desktop. Pretty much all you have to do is hit Record and go for it. And now with version 4, developer Telestream has filled ScreenFlow with new features that make it even better.
Earlier today, Telestream released the latest version of ScreenFlow, the screencasting software designed for Mac. This version, 3.0, delivers OS X Lion compatibility, support for new Lion features, and new content creation and workflow tools.
According to Barbara DeHart, vice president of marketing at Telestream, "ScreenFlow 3.0 allows software developers, trainers, educators, and bloggers to quickly and efficiently capture, edit and create amazing video tutorials, promos, and training videos that enhance the learning experience and online product demonstrations."
We’ve already showed you the basics of making simple but impressive screencasts with ScreenFlow. In this advanced tutorial, we’ll focus more on the editing process—animations, transition effects, the whole nine yards.
When trying to explain how a particular feature works on a Mac to someone who isn’t in the same room as you, sometimes only a video will do. A handful of applications exist to help you perform this task, but they've all been blown away by a newcomer, ScreenFlow.
