BB FlashBack Pro
BB FlashBack Professional is a complex program designed to help you make video recordings of your screen as well as process clips. It can be used to create video tutorials or animations, for instance.
The interface of the tool is clean and intuitive. So, you can record video (full screen, region or window), sound and footage from the webcam.
Once the recording is done, you can open it in the tool's media player and start processing it. BB FlashBack Professional allows you to add textboxes, images, buttons, highlights and arrows.
But you can also apply effects (e.g. blur), add ZoomPan, transitions and a croppping/autoscroll region, highlight the mouse cursor, as well as edit the start and end titles.
Additionally, you can add or replace the current soundtrack, insert mouse click and keypress sounds into the movie, split the sound clips, switch to full screen mode, jump to a specific frame and apply watermarks, as well as use the undo and redo functions.
From the 'Options' area you can disable sound recording or configure sound settings (e.g. sample rate, channel mode, quality), test the webcam, configure optimization settings (e.g. switch off the Windows graphic effects to reduce the movie file size), disable the capture of keystrokes and rearrange keyboard shortcuts.
BB FlashBack Professional has a good response time, includes user documentation and can be minimized to the system tray; the app uses a pretty high amount of CPU and system memory. We have not come across any issues in our tests; the app did not freeze, crash or display error dialogs.
All in all, BB FlashBack Professional is a pretty good solution for recording and processing video files, although it may take some time to get familiarized with its features.
