ScreenFlow 2.0 Adds YouTube Export & Editing Tools to Screen Recording [Update]

Telestream announced Monday the release of ScreenFlow 2.0, an update to the company's screen recording solution for the Mac. The new version adds new export features, including direct-to-YouTube options, as well as new editing features that allow users to edit videos from directly within ScreenFlow.

Screen recording solutions allow users to video whatever is on their Mac's screen, as in a video tutorial that shows you everything the instructor is actually doing. With ScreenFlow, users can highlight areas of the screen, add effects, show keystrokes and combine existing media into their screencasts.

The update adds advanced editing features to ScreenFlow that allow users to adjust the speed of clips, adds new 2D and 3D transitions, including page-curl, ripple, flash, swipe, cross-dissolve, dip to black or white, and more. The company also said it has improved the interface to make the app easier to navigate.

ScreenFlow 2.0 also comes with Flip4Mac WMV Studio, which will let users export to WMV format (for Windows) from within the app. This offer is available through the end of calendar 2009.

ScreeFlow 2.0 is priced at US$99, and it is expected to be released in September of this year. Customers who order the current version from now until the release date will receive the update for free. Reigstered users of earlier version can upgrade for $29.
