Introduction

Capture of onscreen activity is a growing phenomenon -- what with the burgeoning of video sharing sites like YouTube. No longer is it only the techies who record onscreen activities to make training sessions -- now anyone can create and distribute these captured videos.

Our review product: ALLCapture 2 makes recording and output of such videos even easier.

About ALLCapture 2

ALLCapture 2 is from Balesio, a company based in Germany that also creates PPTMinimizer, Turbodemo, etc. You can learn more about these products, and download a trial version of ALLCapture 2 here...


ALLCapture 2 is the newest version, the older version was reviewed here....

The new features are:

  • Memory Space: The new Memory Manager allows for hours of video capturing by storing on the hard drive or other storage media.
  • Audio/Sound: Audio recording can be done directly from the sound card or a microphone, with better recording quality. Sound can also be easily recorded to the video during playback. Background music can be added, edited or removed directly in ALLCapture 2.
  • Recording: A revamped interface and timeline and improved frame logic for memory saving video capture.
  • Editing: Use more monitors
  • Customize the AllCapture editor.
  • Multiple Languages: The application is now available in English, French and German.

My contact at Balesio for this review was Sophia Taoutaou - thank you, Sophia.
