ScreenFlow 4.0.1

Send Article to a Friend

Telestream has released ScreenFlow 4.0 with a profusion of new organization and workflow features added to its popular screencast recording app. Among the new features, the release adds the capability to merge multiple elements into a single nested clip on the timeline (as well as apply filters and video actions to nested clips), plus new organization tools to search for specific clips and arrange them by name, duration, or type. It also adds support for closed captioning, support for the x264 codec to export higher quality MPEG-4 files, a recording timer, and a variety of video effects (including advanced color adjustments, distortion effects, blurring, alpha mask, color effects, and more). ScreenFlow 4.0 also enables dynamic updating and reloading of imported assets directly into the library, timeline, and canvas — however, this feature is not available in the Mac App Store version. For a complete rundown of the new features, download the PDF release notes from Telestream’s support page.

Shortly after the initial release, Telestream issued a version 4.0.1 update with fixes for an issue with keystrokes displaying, a bug that caused error message and sound problems when Remove Background Noise was checked, a recording problem caused by disabled color correction on Radeon X1xxx hardware, and an issue with performance regression created by decoding video on a separate queue from audio.

Owners of previous versions can upgrade to ScreenFlow 4.0.1 for $29 (without a new serial number, saved projects will contain a watermark), and those who purchased ScreenFlow 3.x between 1 October 2012 and 25 October 2012 are eligible for a free upgrade to version 4.0.1. Note that ScreenFlow hasn’t yet been updated to version 4.0.1 in the Mac App Store as of this writing. ($99 new from Telestream, $29 upgrade from 3.x, 2.x, or 1.x, 26.5 MB)

Comments about ScreenFlow 4.0.1

There are not as many options available for exporting.

How do I export a Screenflow file in HD format?

Thanks!
