I took my first spin with ScreenFlow 2.0 today and found it quite enjoyable. The only new feature I tried out was the transitions available now between segments. It turned out OK but I’ll do better the next time around. I noticed that you should leave some “dead air” between your segments more than ever with this version. This is because the transition is created when you drag to segments on top of each other. The more you overlap them, the longer the transition. Thing is, the audio is on a different track and then they don’t mesh up any longer.
All in all, I still think ScreenFlow is one of the best values out there for screen capture / narration movie making. Here is the 12 minute long movie that I created today using ScreenFlow for the basic subscriber features of my InBizness Quiz - FileMaker Edition product.
The movie itself was created using six different segments and I used the “copier machine” transition between the segments. I will try and use the new “publish to youtube” feature next and see how that goes.
