ScreenStudio 0.8.1 is here!

Again, I released a new version of ScreenStudio which does solve audio/video sync issues.

Basically, I was struggling with my webcam that was freezing after a while.  I finally found the perfect configuration to mix the desktop, the webcam and the banner so the recording can be smooth even on an old laptop like mine.

I usually capture at 10fps, to leave some CPU power for other apps, but I did some tests at 15fps and it was still running great.

Seems that using a local file in FLV or AVI format, does provide a great encoding performance.  Increase the bitrate for maximum quality.

If your computer is powerful, cranck the capture rate at 30fps.

Have a look at my latest screencast and see how it has improved.



I am already working on the 0.9 version where I did some improvement like displaying the real name of the audio and webcam sources instead of showing the file device.  Another fix was added when you did not select a custom banner which was preventing saving the last settings.  ScreenStudio 0.9 will be released in the next few days.

Until then, have fun!
