And cooperation with:
Happy new year to all our readers. To start off this new year, we have 2 fantastic programs to giveaway! balesio is a wonderful software company that make great and helpful programs. One of which will be reviewed today. Our first review will be over balesio ALLCapture.
balesio ALLCapture is a great program to record anything on your computer screen. From creating tutorials, to internet video, balesio ALLCapture captures your PC screen in real time. The program follows 4 simple steps: Record, Edit, Export, Play. On initial start up of balesio ALLCapture, you will be presented with the following screen:
I am not very impressed by the initial startup of the program. It is not very attractive and does not explain how to use the program for new users. The interface is not very graphical and bold but instead weak and blatant. But do not let the interface deceive you, ALLCapture has many fuctions. When starting a new project, you have many different kinds of customizations. As seen in the below screensot:
The program has many recording options such as frame rate and regulation mouse activity. I am impressed by the functionality of the program. You begin your record by selecting "OK" and the program will start with a delay (That you set) and can record to up to an hour of uninterupted video with ALLCapture. The editing process though also has a tricky layout for new users. For people with no experience, the editing process may seem very diffcult. The interface of the editing process is very similar to the intiaal startup screen of the program. It lacks the graphical interface many new and experienced users enjoy.
As you can see from the editing area, it looks very complicated. The layout is similar to Adobe Flash Professional, but I am sure many people have not used that program. For novice users, it may seem overly diffiicult and troublesome to edit your recording. Once again, the editing process is actually EASY. Select the time from the timeline and add effect and/or animations and text with a simple click. Record narration during the recording or add it in during the editing process.
The final step is to generate the video. This is done simply by exporting the movie. There are a few quick and easy simple specs that can be modified before the movie is exported.
All in All
balesio ALLCapture is a wonderful program to make and edit videos captured from your PC's screen. It has plenty of useful features but it lacks the user friendly interface. Having an easy to understand graphical interface greatly impacts a users experience with the program and is highly recomended to have. Therefore I rate balesio ALLCapture 4 stars out of 5.
