Beginning February next year (2013), they’ll be reverting all Jing Pro subscribers to the free version of Jing.  In the meantime, encouraging new users to try the new version of Snagit which, beginning with version 2, now sports the ability to for video screen captures.

And that’s not at all a bad thing.  As I say in the video, Snagit — although not what I would consider a robust video screen capture software tool — is definitely a piece of software that should be in your toolkit if you plan on producing screencasts professionally.

So, all this begs the question:  With all the choices out in the wild, which video screen capture software should you use for professional screen capture projects?  Check out the video; I answer all those questions for you.

    Hi Mel, I use Jing daily for my notes on my both MAC and PC, at home and at work.  Great little product.  So easy to use and quick.  

  2. Hey, How does Jing Compare to the premium programs?

    I have been using a screen recording software, screenpresso, since a long time now. I must say it is one of the best screen recording softwares . You should definitely give it a try.
