I love ScreenFlow, the workflow is amazing, chroma key is very easy to use. I am recommending Screenflow for Mac and I will show you how to get started using it in this tutorial right now.
First thing is I used download link I got, immediately upon ordering I hit Agree. I am installing this on Mac, open up the file, let it install here, then I imagine I will be dragging it into application folder and start to set it up. I opened it up and clicked Yes to continue loading and now I am all ready to top go.
All I need to do now is activate ScreenFlow. I can do a new recording, make a new document but what I need to do to activate it.
You can also mix your tracks if you like right there. You can do this by doing a little clap test like this, hold your hands out, clap and bounce your hands off of each other. What you want is for your hands to be touched in the exact same way that that sound spikes in the video. I would need to detach the audio to even get it to this point and then slightly move my audio.
I have seen a bunch of times people recording screens not getting that aspect set up properly, even established and experienced instructors.
The Save Frame option can be very helpful for you to make a quick thumbnail for your video which is how I make my thumbnails. I just took a quick screenshot of the video and threw them text on it. Those are very helpful commands you will want to use. The chroma key is over on the right of the video, when you click on a clip the property bar is on the right.
When you go over to video filters, you hit the plus button on the video filter and then click on add Chroma Key. You can see it looks like the screen got moved off somehow. I can have huge radar click effects when I click on something to help it pop up. See how that red ping came on, there is a red ping when I click on it. You can also do a big, lighter or darker, pointer here and that will help you see. If you want it to be that way. You can also turn all these effects off if you want.
You can even zoom in to make the pointers super ridiculously huge if you want. You can use the touchbar to adjust the visible sections of the timeline. Projects could easily become corrupted when saved to remote locations such as network drives or cloud storage solutions, or when transferring files between projects. The combination of both recovery systems also could use excessive storage space in certain instances. Now that there are no longer two recovery systems in competition with each other, these potential issues no longer occur.
This is great for videos where the highest possible quality is not the main goal, and you would like the export process to have a minimal impact on system resources. Implement Multi-Pass x Encoding — Multi-pass x encoding can improve quality of exports when compared with single-pass.
Now, ScreenFlow will use this automatically if you select a higher quality option from the new auto-export options. Add a Waveform Progress UI to show progress of waveform processing — When adding files containing audio, or applying certain audio filters, audio waveform rendering can take a lengthy amount of time to complete.
Now, ScreenFlow 7 will keep you informed that it is performing an intensive process in the background, and when it is completed. This is particularly useful, as it makes the user aware that editing during render times may be slower until render completion. Add support for higher timeline frame rates — In ScreenFlow 7, you can now edit in 60 fps. The timeline shows an fps indicator, and you can easily toggle between 30 or 60 fps modes. User defined shortcut keys — We have added a shortcut manager in ScreenFlow 7.
Users can add new shortcut keys to commands that did not previously have a shortcut assigned to it, or change existing shortcuts. You can even have different shortcut sets that can be changed on the fly! Calculate exported file size — In the export window, ScreenFlow will now provide a estimated filesize. Please keep in mind, this is just an estimation.
The resulting file sizes will vary. In our testing, it has been consistently close in its estimation. Made the Timeline and Inspector panels collapsible — Preview mode has been removed, and we have added a shortcut key to collapse the timeline and inspector.
Add media to Timeline in sequence — When adding multiple assets to the timeline, ScreenFlow will now place them in sequential order, rather than in separate tracks. This is great for dialing in more complex, multi-channel workflows before the recording begins, saving time by removing the need to apply repetitious edits to each channel after each recording.
Publish to Imgur — ScreenFlow 7 will allow you to quickly and easily publish directly to Imgur, perfect for gif files.
