    • John Wake

    Very good course

    I have been using Screenflow but kinda stumbling through it. I'm looking forward to using it with confidence and getting more creative.

    I am new to Screenflow. I came across it in a review of products I may use for editing on-line training courses. I am looking for software that is simple with sufficient features to do a professional job with an expedited work flow. Phil's Screenflow course has demystified the options available and convinced me this is the product I am looking for - Thanks Phil! The course is very comprehensive covering all features to a level that is perfect for a newbie trying to get a grip on what can be done and how. Phil uses great production values for clear presentations, audio and video. The one small comment I would make for improvement would be to consider a less wordy approach. I really like Phil's conversational style but would like to see it tempered with a little less chat. Not a big one, just a tune up suggestion :) Anyone considering software for screen capture and/or course video/audio editing should do this course.
