SmartPixel 4.0

Comprehensive screen recorder and video editor for your tutorials and games

If you happen to require a simple yet efficient screen recorder and editor, SmartPixel is an excellent option to consider. It can capture your webcam video and desktop activity, making it a stunning tool for creating tutorials and producing in-game recordings. Its editing capabilities will let you add creative effects to your videos, from static text, speech bubbles, and borders to animated scenes and pendants.

The program’s black attractive interface is – most importantly – intuitive and easy to navigate. You can move from the two recording options (screen and webcam) to the video editor in just one click, and save, manage, export, and share your recordings in an easy and effective way. Recording video is an equally straightforward operation regarding the source selected. Screen recording requires you to define whether you wish to record the entire screen or just a specific area, while webcam recordings can be embellished on the fly by adding any of the various effects and beautifying options provided. However, once you have finished your recordings, you can always move them to the in-built timeline editor for further tuning.

The video editing tools that SmartPixel offers allow you to add a personal and creative touch to your tutorials, webcam videos, and game recordings. You can add speech bubbles with funny explanations, subtitles, music soundtracks, a wide variety of video effects, animations, etc. Editing your videos is an easy and intuitive task thanks to its timeline-based interface. Here you can apply the various effects, audio tracks, and text streams just by dragging and dropping them into the timeline, and use your mouse to move quickly and accurately back and forth through your video. You can easily check any of the changes using the program’s preview window, and make as many corrections or improvements as necessary in no time.

Once you are happy with the results, you can either export your video as an MP4 or AVI high-quality video file, a WPC file (SmartPixel proprietary format), or as a GIF animation. Alternatively, you can share your videos directly to Facebook, Twitter, or your Google account without leaving the program. As you can see, the possibilities are endless, and you won’t easily find a simpler and more intuitive screen and webcam recording and editing tool – at least, not with such a high level of versatility and flexibility.
