ScreenFlow Review

Video editing and screen recording software for Mac

Go grab ScreenFlow now! It’s absolutely great, as you’ll see below. I use ScreenFlow for two main reasons:

  • Creating tutorials from my desktop of various applications
  • Creating new videos or mixing together different video files

First, here’s a little review / how-to video I made!


To me, ScreenFlow is the single best tool for capturing your screen and then editing the resulting video. Nothing else even compares. Plus, they are constantly coming out with updates and new goodies. They definitely are not letting it go into mothball mode, which is great. They often come up with new tools and techniques that I didn’t even know I wanted!

It is really really simple. Even though I know how to use Adobe Premiere and Final Cut, I find those interfaces to be a little overwhelming. I can still figure out what the heck I am doing, but most of that stuff is overkill for me. If you are going to be doing HARDCORE video editing for movies, TV, or commercials, then maybe you do want Premiere or Final Cut, but most of us don’t need something that powerful. Anyway, as you can see in my video above, it’s extremely powerful and easy. I didn’t go in to show off all the features, but I showed you 100% of what I use on a regular basis!

Bonus How-To Video

I made a popular quadcopter video that went kinda viral with about half a million views on Facebook. I used ScreenFlow to edit it all together! Here is a video below that shows “The` Making Of,” and you can see Screenflow in action. Note it’s from an earlier version of ScreenFlow, so it may look a bit different.

  • Any suggestions for Windows software? I’ve got Camtasia, just wondering if there’s anything better. Or should I just buy a Mac? haha

  • Good question — well “Jing” is okay for the PC – but not good at editing… but it is free!

  • So Trey – what is the “drag to share” plugin you are using??

  • Thomas

    The “drag to share” is great, it seems that it comes from – does it work with a WP plugin?

  • Thanks!

    The Drag to Share is not a plugin – it’s a special thing from Meebo — signed contract and everything.

  • Lawrence

    I want to use a simple video editing suite but would also like to add effects and layer on top captions or in some cases animation etc .. something a little more creative than just simple editing..

    Any suggestions

  • Do you have a coupon code to buy this program?

  • With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate it.

    This was great! Really helpful for such an assiduous YouTube-er to show how you produce your videos! (BTW I use Screenflow 7 myself but am always open to “how to” videos!)

  • Cool! 🙂
