PROS / CamVerce provides a plethora of tools such as slicing and multiple conversion.
CONS / It will not automatically record audio as you capture video.
VERDICT / CamVerce is one of the best video capture software options in terms of amount of editing tools and versatile interface. You can launch all applications within same screen and customize your video quickly.
The best video capture software we reviewed is Innoheim’s CamVerce. The CamVerce video screen capture software allows you to launch all applications from one window. You can record your computer’s current screen, draw on-screen while recording, edit, export and play interactive files so viewers can get involved. We found the recording, editing and saving tools more advanced in regards to design, options and usability than what we saw in other video capture software options.
This streaming video recorder offers a plethora of options to capture video. You can schedule a recording for a specific day and time, which is a unique feature among video capture software. You can also capture real-time video from your computer screen, customize the recording area size, add special effects and capture the mouse/cursor as necessary. You can also save recordings to 10 file formats, more than any other software we found: AVI, DOC, EMX, EXE, HTML, MOV, RM, SWF, PPT and WMV.
In addition to the video screen recording options, there are several choices available for recording audio with your videos. You can alter the audio sources based on the project and include recording sound from your computer, a microphone or a custom source. In addition to the source, we were able to change the channel, bits and sampling ratio of the audio until we found the result that we were most happy with. CamVerce also includes a unique feature in which you can add background music or sound effects to your recordings.
It has on-screen drawing capabilities so you can draw on your screen while video capture records it in real time. You can use the cursor to enable it, but the toolbar is easy to access and simple to use. You can turn the drawing capability on and off and the toolbar hides when you aren't using it so it does not interfere.
CamVerce tops the list for amount of editing choices. In addition to the video capture software tools you can use throughout your recordings, the application also offers unique editing features you can use after the capture is complete. You can cut frames from your video, copy frames and paste the frames into the video. You can also add objects, images, callouts or text to the video and move them as needed. In addition to the images you can edit after recording, you can also alter the audio. You can re-record the audio and join it again with the video or you can split the audio and the video for multiple effects.
Overall, the webcam video capture software is easy to use. The main menu is aesthetically pleasing, clean and well organized. It is a user-friendly application that offers simplicity and strength in its recording and editing tools. The video capture software downloaded quickly and within minutes we began using the screen recording options. CamVerce's tab options are clear and guided us through recording, editing, playing and converting.
Each step of the process was straightforward. You can select a full screen recording size, window frame recording or a custom size recording. You can then alter video recording specifications: frames per second, compression level and hardware acceleration. In addition to the video specifications, you can enable the audio recording and cursor options. We found it easy to customize our recording options to our needs. However, the recording area is less flexible. It's surrounded by a bright pink box that can't be moved once in place.
