Screen2EXE 3.6
Add captions to your clips with the built-in editor

Screen2EXE is a capable tool which records desktop activity, allows you to edit it in many ways, then saves the results as AVI/ MP4 videos, or a self-playing EXE file.

Setting up a recording session is easy. Click and drag with the mouse to define the capture area; choose the frame rate you need (1/ 2/ 4 fps, or as fast as possible); check a box if you'd also like to include audio, and click "Start Recording". Then simply launch programs, browse dialog boxes, play streaming video, or do whatever else it is you'd like to record.

Press F10 when you've finished, and Screen2EXE opens the recording in its editor. Here you can customise the video with text captions, images and more. Options to zoom in on a particular area, or mask the rest of the screen, help to direct your viewers attention. And you're able to fine-tune the recording by cutting out unwanted sections, removing frames you don't need, perhaps adding delays to others.

A preview window means you're able to check your progress at any point, and once you're happy the finished movie can be exported as videos (FLV, MP4, RM, AVI) or a self-playing EXE. The "Save" dialog gives you control over the video resolution and number of colours (best, 16-bit, 4096 colours, 256, greyscale), and we found the program typically produced extremely small files.

Please note, the developers also produce a commercial edition of the program, Screen2SWF. As you'll guess from the name, it's essentially the same product, with an additional option to save your video as a Flash movie. It's yours for $49.

Verdict:

Screen2EXE doesn't have the best interface, and it might take you a few minutes to figure out exactly how everything works. But the program's powerful editing tools, good range of output formats and tiny file sizes mean it's well worth the effort. Go try it for yourself.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
