Screencasts are the most effective way of explaining how to work on a Mac to friends, relatives, colleagues or customers. Screenium will help you demonstrate a workflow by making capturing it easy. Start the recording and forget about it while you concentrate on what you do best — equipping your viewers with knowledge.

Screenium 2 offers a choice of four capture modes: capture the entire screen, a single window, a freely selectable area on your screen or have an area follow your mouse pointer.
Screenium 2 also introduces a completely new and built-in video editor. Now it is also possible to create stunning compositions of your captured videos directly in Screenium 2.
Whether it is cutting, adding transitions, organizing your screencast with chapter marks, or adding effects and animated forms and text, Screenium 2 offers all the features you need to create sophisticated screencasts.

■ Cut and edit you video directly in Screenium 2
■ Organize your video with chapter marks
■ Emphasize you mouse clicks or focus on the menu you were working in by adding zoom effects in the video editor
■ Animate text and shapes in the video editor to hide sensitive information or to highlight menu entries
■ Customize cross fade animations and brush up you screencast with special effects
■ Edit audio and add audio filters to improve sound quality
■ Have Screenium hide your desktop wallpaper and icons during capture.
■ Record everything you hear from your Mac's speakers along with the video.
■ Connect a microphone or use your Mac's integrated mic to record your voice.
■ Integrate a video from any QuickTime-compatible webcam or from your Mac's integrated iSight.
■ Have your mouse pointer and your clicks stand out with the included mouse visualization.
■ Control main features with freely assignable keyboard shortcuts.
■ Export your captured videos into any QuickTime format available on your Mac.

No longer works!! - This app is completely busted. This new version captures audio but no video. I have used Screenium with much success in the past but, as it stands right now, the app is useless. Please fix this. Thanks!

Version 2.1.8
Review by NMcClure

Waste of Money for Busted App - Let me join in with the chorus of other reviewers by saying: Don’t buy this app. I tried the demo for my Let’s Play channel and loved it. I bought it based on that experience. That was about a year ago - and I have not had full functionality since. I contacted Screenium support and they have been insultingly unhelpful. Do yourself a favor and get iShowU HD.

Use Quicktime Instead - Don’t buy this. It crashes and doesn’t work. You will be wasting your money. Quicktime -- which COMES WITH YOUR MAC — does beautiful screen and audio capture, and will in fact also do the same for any iOS device you plug into your Mac.

Version 2.1.8
Review by AmandaDraws

Horrible - I have had the worst experience with this app. It crashes constantly, captured recorded videos can’t be saved, exporting freezes. I can’t open files unless I use File > Open. Drag-and-drop and “Open Recent” do not work most of the time. Sometimes I can’t even open more than one file at a time - even small files - without the program crashing. The mouse-capture works half of the time and the fact that I have to use a third-party audio plug-in is unprofessional. Also, it’s terribly difficult [impossible?] to find where Screenium caches Composition files in the library. I’m moving on to another screen capture app. Recording instructional videos is time-consuming enough. Dealing with a faulty app isn’t worth my time.

Review by Webstergroup

No Audio - I have a brand new iMac 27” and no matter what I do, I can not capture my voice with the internal mic. Very Frustrating. A waste of 39.00
