Telestream, a provider of digital media tools and workflow solutions, announced a major release for its award-winning ScreenFlow screen recording and video editing software. ScreenFlow 4 optimizes full-screen recording for Apple Retina displays, adds chroma key support, nested clips, media library tools, additional video and audio effects, closed caption support, and more. ScreenFlow has been acknowledged by Macworld and others as an “amazing app” that helps users create computer-based tutorial videos by recording screen activity along with narration for sharing online with others.
Powerful Organizational Tools
ScreenFlow 4 adds important new features to help users keep complex projects organized. Nested clips allows users to merge multiple elements into a single clip on the timeline, making it easier to access and edit content and apply filters and video actions. New media library organization tools make it easier for users to find and organize all the clips in their libraries, search for a specific clip, arrange clips by name, duration or type, and more.
More Razzle-dazzle Production Features
With ScreenFlow 4, Telestream adds more professional production tools that enable users to add sparkle to any video. Built-in chroma key allows users to replace a green (or any color) background with a custom video or still image background, adding a professional look to video productions. New Core Image video effects filters include advanced color adjustments, distortion effects, blurring, alpha mask, color effects and more. New Core Image audio effects filters include EQ, multiband compression, peak limiting, delay and more. Freehand callout support for all media and ProRes Alpha Channel export support are now available. Plus, full color-sync-enabled rendering provides increased fidelity of preview and exported videos.
Tools to Reach New Audiences
The addition of closed captions and new export options in ScreenFlow 4 makes it easy to target and reach new audiences. Users can now add, edit and publish ADA (American Disabilities Act) compliant soft subtitles as caption tracks to MPEG-4 movies and YouTube videos. Captions can also be created in multiple languages. MPEG-4 export using the x264 video codec allows for the distribution of exceptionally high-quality video to a greater number of viewing devices.
Features to save time and streamline workflows
A number of new shortcuts – including JKL keystrokes for Rewind, Stop, Playback, and the ability to start and end transitions in one click – make ScreenFlow 4 more intuitive and streamlined. The Dynamic Update feature offers the ability to automatically reload media that has been modified in another application, saving time and disk space. The new recording timer lets users set a time for recording to stop, which allows them to set up a recording and return to it later.
