ApowerREC 1.2

Take video captures with audio released by system sound and/or microphone.
 
1.2.7.16 (See all)

ApowerREC is an application designed to help you record the activity of your screen, with or without the audio released by system sound and/or microphone. Therefore, you can use this tool with confidence whenever you want to create professional tutorials, capture streaming videos, record online meetings or other similar activities.

The interface is rather minimalist, yet it hides a lot of features behind more or less visible buttons. Before starting the recording, it is advisable to open the Settings menu in order to determine the desired video frame rate and bit rate, decide whether to show mouse cursor and record mouse clicks, set custom hotkeys to help you manage the tool's functions more easily, and enable auto splitting rules. With this program, you can record webcam, full screen, or determined area. The app comes with several profiles for area selection, but you can also choose custom sizes. In addition, you have the ability to create picture-in-picture videos. The tool allows you to take screenshots while recording and create scheduled tasks. The history of your recordings can be checked at any moment, yet you can neither rename your video captures nor sort the recordings by specific criteria for easier search. However, you are able to upload your videos to favorite sharing websites and transfer files between computers with ease, from within the application.

To sum up, you can rely on the ApowerREC program for quality screen recordings. It comes with interesting and useful screen capture features that distinguish it from similar tools. However, the utility consumes a lot of system resources, so you may encounter blockages if running multiple apps at the same time.
