BSR Screen Recorder 4 Editor Review
BSR Screen Recorder 4 is a great video capture software. It will do everything you want, from capturing a straight picture to video streams and everything in between. This software has auto pan recording, which records where the mouse is. Zoom-in and zoom-out when recording and subtitles and annotations can be recorded into the video as simple as 1.2.3.
You can even draw on the screen with different colours whilst recording. The list of features with BSR Screen Recorder 4 is impressive. BSR can record transparent/layered windows, with this software the only thing that will hold you back is your imagination, you can do almost anything with this software.
Save videos as AVI, SWF and WMV. Set up video presentations or tutorials. The BSR Screen Recorder 4 also includes Movie and Photo Studios, which enable you to merge two videos, cut portions from video, grab pictures from video, add audio and has many more editing options available.
BSR Screen Recorder 4 is an easy to learn powerful screen capturing software with all the bells and whistle. This software I believe is right up there with Snagit. BSR Screen Recorder 4 can be downloaded for FREE with no time limit. So you can take your time to see if this software is right for you. There is a catch, the video and pictures have been watermarked with BSR on them until you pay for it, then the watermarks will disappear. Now for the price, for one users licence it is $39.95 USD.
