iShowU HD Pro

2.3.20
05 October 2016

Real-time screen recording (beta).

Overview

iShowU HD Pro is the pinnacle of realtime capture. Faster than ever with more features to boot! Create tutorials, make a demo for the web, record your favorite game (World of Warcraft!), collaborate on UI design, show tech support what's really going on with that broken program.

Features
  • Instant Capture: No need to export the video for it to be usable1. Once recording is complete you can immediately email it, or drag it into a video editor for further editing.
  • Record Keyboard & Mouse: Show your viewers the keys you're using to perform tasks (HD Pro only). Identify when you're clicking the mouse by using a mouse action.
  • Record from iSight & DV cameras: Personalize your presentation using your built-in iSight camera, or indeed any connected camera!
  • Real-time Preview: Use any picture or image as a watermark by dragging it directly onto the preview. (HD Pro only)
  • Upload to YouTube / Blip.TV: Upload your finished product directly to YouTube or Blip.TV2. Built-in presets to get the best quality.
  • Supports Pro Apps: Includes built-in presets for Final Cut. Finished recordings can be dragged directly from iShowU HD into the timeline. (HD Pro only)
  • Point & Shoot: Don't be restricted to capturing only the full screen. HD lets you specify your own capture area. Say goodbye to "post cropping" of video.
  • Real-time super fast scaling: Want to record at half the size? 2560×1900 into 720p? Now it's no longer a problem - iShowU HD has realtime super quick GPU scaling.

What's new in iShowU HD Pro

Version 2.3.20:
  • Fixed up error that would cause HD to record only 1s of video under macOS 10.12 Sierra
  • Removed HowCast and Blip.TV, and fixed the YouTube upload
  • Added optional dialog that lets users know about the new iShowU Instant app

Difficult to choose from an array of screen capture apps with equal quality. iShowU HD Pro is no winner, but certainly worth a try. Some UI-issues though; the "draw"- and "point"-mode use a VERY small font for explanation in a HUGE granite-black floating HUD. And the addition of a small mini-HUD for record & pause is good, but you can't position it your way. The use of Soundflower isn't a iShowU HD exclusive; Screenflick, Screenium and Screenflow are using it as well. Haven't recorded it for hours, so don't know how well iShowU HD will behave as Drtyrell969 states. Overall a decent app. But for anyone just looking to record their screen without any extra's (my kids like to screencapture their Minecraft Worlds) good old QuickTime Player comes to the rescue; just use control-command-N and off you go...

I have purchased and used this software in the past, however the current version has some engineering issues which have not been corrected. If you are running 10.7.X this software will cause a CPU event, near 98 percent, so you will either need to update to the next higher operating system and take your chances that the product will eventually be fixed or continued to be updated or be content with a product that does not work. This product for its price point is a good product but you will have to constantly fight with bugs, sound issues, since this product uses sound flower, you may experience various issues with regard to being able to record, at times you will find that you cannot record and when you can record, once you close the software you will no longer have audio on your computer, (sound flower locks up the settings) over all it can be a nice program and I will say that they do work very hard at the shiny white box, but of late things have not been as good, no update for a long time now, I wonder if they have all the driving force they had back three years ago when things were going along a good deal better. certainly try out the demo, because you may find some issues.

We're aware of some issues at the mo (e.g: green screen sometimes on Retina machines). Always available via support@shinywhitebox.com if you want to discuss issues further. Neil is currently in Europe with limited connectivity over the next week, but Robert is around.

Absolutely HORRIBLE product. You have to install something called SoundFlower to get sound out of applications. Yeah awesome, except it doesn't work. You do a tiny test movie, fine. You go more than 10 minutes, or an hour, or more and nothing. Huge file with empty sound. Save your money.

My first online comment ever! This product is NOT for the novice. Cost is right but it took over 1.5 hours just to figure out the "nonintuitive" components even with the "infinite and hard to navigate tutorials". In addition the need for additional sound software, etc. Cumbersome, technical for the "novice". Should have read more reviews before purchasing! Out $30...sad way to make money1

Great product. Bit weird to start with, but once the GUI's gotten used to, it just works.

iShowU HD is simply the best screen recording app you can get, in my opinion. I have used camtasia, the more expensive Screen Flow, Snapz Pro X, jing and a couple others and none of them were as easy to use as iShowU HD. This app is also highly configurable and makes it easy to get really good results. I highly recommend this application to anyone that needs screen recording capability. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. If you are looking at this vs screenflow try iShowU app as it is still half the price of ScreenFlow and offers many of the same functions and makes it very easy to use.

I didn't try Screenium, but it looks similar. I did try ScreenFlow which also seems to be popular. Personally I didn't like ScreenFlow and its, well, flow. And I really did not like its price and its activation scheme.

AWESOME APP AWESOME SUPPORT!! The app installed easily, the instructions are very clear and easy to understand, and I had one question of clarification and got a response almost immediately. I highly recommend both the product and the company.

Amazing app, I've used it for a while and I love it. It just keeps getting better and the dev is very responsive. There are always a few things that could be changed and added (this goes for almost every app), and thankfully some of those will be coming.
