What is the best screen capture tool for recording a tutorial / demo video?

A few years ago I had found a great screen capture tool and cannot recall what it was. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I have a Mac so I use Screenflow. Camtasisa works for Windows.

Great. I have a Mac and will check it out. Appreciate the feedback.

Camtasia also has a version for the Mac which I use quite a bit.

I used captivate...long time ago, but now there are better, cheaper choices- the term is called screencasting.
Now, I use the free online( no software to download) http://www.screenr.com/
Have fun with it-
* glad to see your using a video screencasting tool than powerpoint.
Like I said before...if I see a powerpoint presentation for anything , I walk! LOL no really I will walk out of the meeting.


Wink remains flexible for me to work out for tutorials. Guess this could enrich your work even more :)


Camtasia has both MAC & PC versions available. Here is a link that describes 7 alternative screen capture tools for your consideration: http://www.ezvid.com/top_5_free_camtasia_alternatives


For screen clips I use Evernote, they also have a mobile app. The other application is Greenshot. Either one should work for you.

Evernote is not only my best friend software its my junk drawer of content clipping I can actually organize- gave onenote the boot!


I prefer to use - My Screen Recorder Pro ($100)


the best one for me is Camtasia 2 . Camtasia works for both systems. I use it with Mac and works great.

I use Snapz Pro X by Ambrosia (for Mac) to create videos from accessible Flash presentations as a default process and value add for our clients. The reason for this is so that they have the benefit of online access compliance with the Flash presentation and a video of it as well for their use.


For pure screen capture, you can use any number of the webinar tools... just webinar to yourself with capture on.

For presentations which include video, you might consider http://www.knowledgevision.com/
