Great software and customer support

Productive developing of eLearning material, notably SCORM and good customer support

Pros

A good free version for evaluation and reasonably priced licenses. Easy to use and works great in HTML5 and SCORM to upload to LMS or other sites. Great customer support via the forum or email.

Cons

Hard to use javascript (at least for version 6) as no scripting references are available. This would be helpful as certain action in the interactive part are missing. e.g. a play/resume button - but support is available.

Thank you for your positive review, Michael. Regarding Javascript support, we've made great improvements in the latest ActivePresenter 7 version with well documented Javascript API and an improved built-in editor. We also added support for multi-state object and other interactions. Best Regards, ActivePresenter Team.

Looking for a cost-effective tool to combine on screen recordings with other media.

Ability to record on screen actions and combine that with recorded video, still and audio clips to create a single merged video output.

Pros

I played with a lot of tools in this category - many are free/feature limited with Pro versions ranging from single high cost to subscriptions. Active Presenter was the best combination of features (basic timeline editing, ability to pan and zoom the screen video, various options for exporting, no recurring costs for needed features) I found. In fairness, there is no such think as "simple" video editing. If you don't know what you're doing or don't do it frequently enough to recall all the feature locations, you'll struggle. Active Presenter is not designed for first time/one time use. It's a fairly serious program with a lot of features and options. I appreciate that it gives me the tools and controls to do the things I need without limitations, even at the cost of a learning curve.

Cons

It feels like it's designed for more slideshow based output than full video. It's capable of both, but many of the obvious options and toolbar buttons are geared towards something other than integrated video and on-screen action.

ACTIVE PRESENTER REVIEW

I have been able to Produces videos without any water marked on it for free

Pros

I use this Software to Produce Videos for my You-tube Channel. Exceptionally valuable and reasonable for utilizing your congregations, giving better quality to my creation, Instinctive within the overwhelming majority of the cycles and lightweight in space on your PC, the User Interface is Excellent and gives you videos in Different formats (Mp4, AVI,MPEG)

Cons

The video editorial manager itself can be a touch of confounding and you need to ensure that you spare it after the chronicle or, more than likely you will free the account you just performed. " the Software creators do not make adequate provision for Tutorials for beginners.

Easy but not the best to edit your videos or presentations.

It can save you from an emergency, but I wouldn't use it regularly.

Pros

It's relatively easy to use, gets the job done. Intuitive in most of the processes and light in space on your PC.

Cons

The outcomes are not the best and the could be a lot of disappointments and frustration when editing.

Full window's screen capturing

I use this program to record myself when I am testing out websites and have to show bugs and my replication steps to get to the bugs.

Pros

Free, pretty easy to setup and understand, and it even has a built in editor so you don't have to download a third party program to convert it to mp4. It also not only allows you to record your full windows screen but it also allows you to record yourself via webcam, with built in options to upload to twitch and other sites, at the same time so can be great for gamers

Cons

The video editor itself can be a little confusing and you have to make sure that you save it after the recording or else you will loose the recording you just performed.
