Recording screen activity can be done by default through pictures. However, if you want to build a tutorial, or simply capture something funny happening on your desktop, a simple picture might not express it all. It is up to specialized applications like Recordzilla to help you capture a whole video, with multiple customization possibilities.
Configure capture region
The main window is pretty neat, with a side panel that makes it easy to access all of its functions. Accommodation is a walk in the park, even though there are many elements in each function, and you might feel a little overwhelmed.
You can start recording immediately, with the application going to the system tray so it doesn’t forcefully interfere with anything on the screen. In this regard, hotkeys give you the possibility to easily start and stop recordings, but this can also be done through the tray icon, or main window.
The application doesn’t record just the entire screen, with options to manually specify a custom region to capture, or a specific window. In case you’re using this last method, and moving the window, you can have it tracked, so you include every detail.
Output settings and more tools
Before recording, you might want to pay a visit to other areas, so you can configure video and audio quality settings. For instance, the new video can come out as AVI, WMV, SWF, or FLV, with options to configure compressors, and quality. Moreover, the application lets you add text an image overlay, date and time, and whether or not to include the pointer, with a customizable highlighter.
During the recording session, pressing a specific combination of keys enables drawing mode, which is just neat for building a help video. Saving can be done automatically if the output is specified, or leave the prompt to ask for a new location after every session. There’s also the option to schedule recordings for less effort.
On an ending note
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that Recordzilla is a powerful screen recording utility, which you can configure for the entire desktop, or a custom region. Multiple tools allow you to put emphasis on specific elements through drawing, a scheduler for more comfort, and configurable output file and quality settings, which make it worth at least a try.
