HyperCam is a tool developed to help you record screen activity, while also offering a dedicated video editor to join and trim recordings.
The interface is very easy to use and lets you choose the area to record instantly, with three different options at your disposal: region, full screen or a user defined window.
If you're OK with the standard settings, you can safely start recording, but it's highly recommended to have a look in the settings menu to customize the app.
First of all, you're allowed to pick the video compressor and the output format, which can be AVI, WMV or ASF. Additionally, you can record sound too, with dedicated options to pick the device and the source, the audio compressor and the output format.
Another good feature of HyperCam is the hotkey support, which lets you pause, stop or start a recording using predefined keyboard shortcuts. Plus, you can set up a different key combination to take a screenshot during the recording.
Last but not least, HyperCam is also able to capture the mouse cursor, a feature that makes the app appropriate for creating tutorials and other video guides similar to the ones we're seeing today on the Internet.
Obviously, the impact of system performance is minimal, as HyperCam runs on low resources and doesn't hamper the computer at all.
In the end, HyperCam is one of the apps that do their jobs, providing a great amount of configuration options and a well-organized interface to make everything easy to use even for the very beginners.
