SAP 005: Which video editor should you use for creating screencast videos

dean haycox no responses

what video editor should I choose for screencast videos

I get asked this question a lot on my blog which video editing software and screen recording software  should I use when it comes to creating my screencast videos.

 

I’ve used many different video/screen recording editors over the past few years, but now I only use a few. In this episode I talk about 8 different video editing programs (from free to pro) and help you figure out which is best for you and your budget.

 

I also share a couple of bonus apps that help me from time to time, add some animation and call actions in my screencast videos, that otherwise would take hours to do.
