To some, taking video of ones computer screen may look magical, right? Wrong! It is not magic or some special features of one’s pc. You can video your entire pc screen, give quality snapshots and edit the videos professionally with the help of some software and today, we are going to be discussing the top best five that can achieve this for you…
My Top 5 Video Editing and Screen Caption tool For Bloggers
AVS Video Editor: This is one of my favorite video editing software because it has almost all features that’ll make a good tutorial video. AVS have a simple interface that is very much easy to understand and to be honest with you guys; anybody can master this software within minutes.
Do note that “AVS video editor” has the free version and the paid version. They both have the same features and functionality but the only difference between the paid version and free version is; the free version gives your finishing video a watermark while the paid version doesn’t add watermark.
Camtasia: I was introduced to this software months ago by a friend and ever since, I have been combining both AVS and Camtasia. I love the camtasia for so many reasons; it can zoom in and out any editing video and it can even do lots more. If you’ll ask me, I’ll definitely say camtasia is great but not as easy as AVS.
Also note that “Camtasia” has a free and paid version. The free version has limited functions and also gives your finishing video a watermark but the paid has all functions and doesn’t add watermarks. I’ll recommend this to any blogger.
Note: If you don’t have the money to purchase this little software and you really want to use it, just send me an email and I’ll give you a crack (I’ll only give my regular readers that usually leave comments on my blog posts)
CyberLink: Ok! This software is 100% free and one sweet thing about it is; it comes with all HP laptops so you don’t have to search for it. cyberLink really can do some awesome tricks that are beyond expectations. It has a lot of effect, it can record your pc screen and it can even snap shot your entire pc or a small portion (depends on how you want it).
Cyberlink is one great editing and video capturing tool that is worth a try but it is not as great as the above mentioned but still, cyberlink is great in its own way.
CamStudio: This is also a portable free tool that plays nice with your pc. I love this “Camstudio” because it is portable, doesn’t take up cpu usage, that means it makes your system fast and it is the easiest and most understandable video editor I have ever seen. One other cool feature i love about CamStudio is you can purify sounds, change your voice, make the image more sharper and cooler. What more can i say then to go check ’em out 🙂
Your Turn: What other video editor do you know and use that is free? Please do let us know so it can benefit all and future people who want to create a presentation or video tutorial.
Those are my top 5 video editing, video screen capture, screen snapshot every blogger should have (at least one). Remember that if you have not started creating a tutorial video or an inspiring video for your readers, please do start now and see the good changes it’ll bring.
