Screen Flash at $80 is the economy demo software with fairly robust
show and tell creation capabilities. It use Flash .SWF file format
to save demos in. Screen Flash features three different recording
1)Window mode captures all the mouse and screen action on a selected
2)drawn rectangle records all the mouse and screen action in a user drawn "invisble"
rectangle on screen;
3)full screen mode capures all mouse and actions on the full screen.
ScreenFlassh records sounds and keyboarding on screen and allows for microphone
annotation as well.
The captured frames can be edited within a timeline window in
ScreenFlash. This allows for adding captions, lines, drawings,
and another layer of audio annotation. In short, ScreenFlash is
like having all the editing that you desperately wanted in Lotus
ScreenCam and gladly would have spent 80 dollars for. And to boot
the Flash SWF files are very compact. The downside is that you
cannot add conditional branches or extensive user responses unless
you synch pauses in the ..swf with editing you do in Macromedia
Flash. But the bottom line - ScreenFlash is what Lotus should have
built at the very least with its ScreenCam franchise.
