BB FlashBack has the advantage over similar screen recorders in that it can record video activity in different formats and allows you to add all sorts of text, images and sound.
The program is very customisable in that it can be customised to take snapshots of only certain parts of a screen at all times - so you can make it dedicated to just the left or right hand side of the screen.
Another key benefit is that it's very easy to create shortcuts for screen recordings with the keyboard. In this way, you hardly need to use the mouse.
It's the screen recorder with all the features you need to make high quality movies and deliver them in the right format for you and your audience.
Probably the best feature though is that you can easily add text, images and sound. You can record a commentary while recording the screen or add it later.
The commentary can be in MP3 or WAV format and you can add text boxes, tips bubbles and images to your movie. When exporting, BB FlashBack screen recorder exports to Flash, AVI, WMV, EXE and PowerPoint so it's pretty flexible in that respect too.
An excellent video screen cast solution that's simple enough for beginners but has enough advanced features to keep experts happy.
