What do you like best?

Movavi Screen Capture is easy to use and can be set up in a minute, even during live conversations that I might be having on Skype or during a video that I may be watching.

The recordings are high quality and suitable for editing down to core content. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I am using Movavi Screen Capture Pro on one device and if I jump to another screen say by referring to a web site, it records whats on my screen at the time, not the video I am recording. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a go.

It's easy to use.

You will find uses for it that you haven't anticipated. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I do many selling pitches to clients using Skype. These calls last for about 60 minutes.

I record these using Movavi Screen Capture Pro.

Movavi Screen Capture Pro allows me to fully concentrate on my conversation with my prospect, rather than taking copious notes.

People like to see their own words in proposals and after the call I can go back to review the key words, processes and concepts to which the prospect gave a positive reaction.

I incorporate these into the quotation I subsequently send the prospect.

I also watch many educational videos that cannot be downloaded. Most of these videos have a few gems I would like to remember surrounded by a lot of fluff.

I record these and fast forward to the bits that really interest me.

The quality of the recorded video enables me to run the video through a video editor and keep the interesting stuff.

The best thing I like about Screen capture pro is the ease of use The fact that you can also Record audio And not just the screen like other screen capture programs. it makes it much easier than mixing sound in later Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The biggest problem I have with screen capture pro Is the file size of this captured Video. You can be 4 or 5 times larger Then the same video if downloaded through downloading program or Flash to download. It makes it very hard To find media That will accept a file That's 32 gigabytes in SIZE Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

What do you like best?

I wanted a simple to use screen capture utility to document and communicate new features in a software development process. As such I want the video capture software to have minimum impact in speed and an easy-to-use interface - and Screen Capture Pro delivers on both!

Easy to configure sound input sources so I can easily make comments to the captured videos.

Before deciding upon Screen Capture Pro, I evaluated a couple of similar products, including screenflow and others. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't appreciate that I only have 3 downloads unless I purchase a rather expensive two-year extended download period. I know it is a common practice, but since I purchase most software on various App Stores including Steam and other similar services, I have come to expect the ability to download any software I have previously purchased, as many times as I want.

Many ways to accelerate your workflow, Intel HD, Nvidia and AMD hardware supports makes footage so fast, that by the time you get back with your freshly made coffee, you can already review the results!

Another great feature is that the software ships with a wide range of profiles for nearly any nearly any device you can think of. Smartphones, TV's, Bluray's, iPads and so on. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It would be great if the developers expand the export section for advanced users.

I would love to be able to configure each and every aspect of the encoding process since I have the knowledge to do so. Additionally, The option to be able to setup a folder dedicated for cache files only. This way users can take advantage of a PCI nVME SSD drive and speed up the encoding even more. I currently do this with a windows hack as a work around. And it works like a charm! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are a camtasia user, than I highly reccommend that you make the swith. Movavi, is cheaper, more stable, has better hardware support, and therefor it is way faster. The workflow is also faster.

The learning curve of Movavi is less steap, and even beginners will quicvkly start to master this software.\

I tested this software on a system that only had a IGPU (a intel i7 7700k with a iGPU by intel type 630 HD. And the performance and speed was very impressive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's excellent for making instruction videos for newcomers, compress it down to a reasonable file size, store them on the company network, so each new employee can quickly get started. Movavi allows me to make this videos very quickly, and if needed, include chapters or host them on the web, and make them very fast to start streaming. Before I was using a very similar software package, which we probably all know, and all have used, but once it started with a subscription model, on top of the slow performance (not to mention the extremely long encoding times) I downloaded the demo of Movavi, and was so impressed by it speed, that I bought a full license, and in just 1 weekend, I completely got back on track with all my projects. That was a beautiful experience! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What is totally awesome about this product is the ease of use that it has. It is safe to say that it is pretty self-explanatory. All you have to do is review all of the options before starting.

I also love the fact that you can add the video (in MP4 format) to your website very easily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The fact that it makes my app super slow when I try to open pdf´s and various documents during the recording only makes it a little frustrating.. I did find a way around it....

I restarted the Movavi program several times because after recording 8 or so times it would give me the (Not Responding) message. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would absolutely recommend this product if you just have straight forward screen recording needs. If you need to open Documents for your video just pre-generate them first. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The software is fast and has a slick interface for screen capture and recording. I really think it's easy to use and worth the money. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When saving screenshots, I like to name my files. So, the screenshot gets a name and then when I hit save it creates another file with a new name. I don't like that at all. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

When you do a screen capture, don't save the file until I've named it. The save function doesn't make sense if the file is created before you save it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It is very easy and quick to use. I can create instructional videos for my employees in minutes. It's also very easy to edit and save videos in the format you desire Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is not an easy way to edit instructions into the actual video, however, we loaded all our videos onto an unlisted youtube page for our employees and I put the written instructions in the description which works just fine. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This cuts down on direct questions from my employees who can check on a video to answer their questions as well as cuts down on our face to face training time. It is also extremely helpful with reinforcing the information that they learn in initial training because they can now practice on their own and practice doing things correctly since they have visual directions right in front of them Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As a university instructor, I often need to utilize screen capture software (especially for the occasional online courses I teach), and Movavi offers a great substitute for TechSmith Relay. TechSmith takes much longer to process videos, and it does not -- as far as I understand -- permit users to download the files: rather, users are merely provided a link to embed the video in their learning management systems, which is to say that the files stay in TechSmith's database. In contrast, Movavi allows one to process the files himself, which is faster, and the files stay on one's own hard drive, which makes Movavi much more versatile. For instance, I can upload them to shared Google Drive files or use them on my personal academic website. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The two drawbacks I see with Movavi are that the edit options are not straightforward, and the media files are far too large. As an example of the first concern, if one wishes to trim a screen capture video, dragging the timer to the spot where one wants the video to end and pressing the scissors icon doesn't seem to be enough to trim the file: there is no button to confirm a trim and yet saving the file at this stage would save the entire, unedited version of the file. I'm still trouble-shooting this. As an example of the second concern, after testing this each minute of a screen capture seems to consist in roughly 12.5 MB, which makes these files unwieldy and less versatile. Ideally, one would be able to send these video files via email (which generally has a 25 MB limit). And even if one uses Movavi Video Converter, which allows one to compress the file, the data is still large and the quality of the video quickly declines. I tried converting a 4-minute screen capture video on the lowest video-quality conversion setting and the quality was absolutely horrendous and the file still exceeded 35 MB. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Movavi Screen Capture to provide my undergraduates in my online courses more interactive lecture slides, and to provide students feedback on their working drafts of academic papers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I recently found and purchased Movavi Screen Capture Pro after having the frustrating experiences of trying to find an effective, good & simple screen capture software.
