Review

Claquette can help you create your own videos. In this respect, this tool comes with most of what is necessary to record, import and edit footage with decent results. The application's interface makes it look somewhat different from others of the same type, which probably means that you need to spend some time exploring its features before you feel comfortable with it.

Good to know you can import video files in several formats. What is more, you can record clips from various sources, such as your computer screen, a connected cam or a portable device (iPhone or iPad). Likewise, it is possible to capture audio streams from any source, including sound cards and microphones. In this regard, I loved that, when grabbing screen activities, Claquette can show mouse interactions like clicking and dragging, which is very convenient for creating demonstrations and tutorials.

Then, in terms of editing features, you will find Claquette supports common operations, such as trimming a specific segment, cropping a part of the screen and merging various source clips. However, do not expect the tool to support sophisticated editing operations, like working with a timeline and tracks, let alone using advanced filters and effects.

Just like many other similar tools, Claquette lets you export to a myriad of formats, which supports its use as a video transcoder. It is noticeable that it can export video specifically intended to be posted on your favorite social network. Likewise, it lets you create animated GIFs, which are becoming increasingly popular. more
