ScreenFlow 4.0.3

Send Article to a Friend

Telestream serves up a heaping helping of bug fixes with version 4.0.3 of its ScreenFlow screencast recording app. Amongst the highlights of the nearly 50 changes, the update ensures that recording in Mirrored mode works with VGA outputs, fixes a bug that multiplied the mouse image when recording Java, keeps the duration window at the right side of a project, updates localizations, and fixes an issue with the Mac App Store version that prevented exporting to Windows Media format. (Note that the Mac App Store version is still stuck at version 4.0.2 as of this writing.) For a complete rundown of the new features, download the PDF release notes from Telestream’s support page. ($99 new from the Telestream Web site or $99.99 from the Mac App Store, $29 upgrade from version 3 or earlier via Telestream, 27.7 MB)
