Question

Hi guys!
Not sure if I got the right thread..=)

I've got the following issue. I need the software for Macintosh that can record video from the desktop and then save it in SWF format (actually html + swf).
One of the main points is an ability to add comments to the recorded file, so I can create the video tutorials with the explanations.

So, I'm searching for the soft which is close to Instant Demo ( https://www.instant-demo.com) but this one works only for Windows.

If anyone could help me with this, I'd appreciate.

Thank you.

Hi Joe, welcome to TSF

Copernicus (freeware)
Quote:
Copernicus has been redesigned from the ground up to bring you the easiest screen capture and movie capture available. It features the ability to capture movies directly to ram, offering higher framerates than possible with other programs. Once you are done recording your movie, you can export to any video format that QuickTime supports, including MPEG-4.
I can't find any Mac screen capture programs that records straight to SWF, so you might need to convert the captured video with something like Video2SWF.

koala,
Thanks for your response!

I've tried this one but it saves the captures like a series of images but this not the main point...
There is no possibility to add comments to the video...and I need this.

Found one more: Screen Movie Recorder.dmg, it saves the video into uncompressed MOV and then I compress it to mp4 format. But I cannot add the necessary screen tips with this video either...

Is there a soft that can do all of this and save into SWF at all?

If you can get the screen capture OK but not the ability to add comments (voiceover) then you could import your screen capture video into iMovie and add the voiceover there using the inbuilt mic (still going to have to convert to .swf using a converter)- long way around I know but in the absence of other suggestions.......

Unfortunately, I'm searching the one for MAC, cause for Win I found InstantDemo - this software suits my needs best.

If I need a lot of demos, I think this case won't be so good, cause will take a lot of time...

Have a look here - special on for two more days Studio would be the one for you - does Mac and Linux.

Thanks to everybody for your answers!

As I still have not found the appropriate soft for my needs I'm doing in the following way:

- record a video to .mov format via Snapz Pro
- copy .mov file to PC
- open Instant Demo software
- open the video using any player (quick time or any other)
- select the screen area with a video
- create a regular demo using Instant Demo software
- add comments

and get the SWF file (much less than original .mov file) with comments and hotspots (instant demo software)!

Maybe it will be useful for other guys! Good luck!
