River Past Screen Recorder Pro is a screen-capturing tool. It can record virtually anything on the computer screen. This includes the whole desktop, menus, windows, cursors and videos. Audio can likewise be recorded as an AVI file from sources like the speakers, microphone, or line level audio feeds from components like CD and DVD players, TVs, mixing consoles, and audio amplifiers. The software also allows the user to record to WMV files by means of Microsoft Windows Media Screen codec, which specializes in producing high-quality, small-screen videos. The program is useful for creating presentations, screencasts, presentations, and other tasks that involve capturing desktop operations.
Recorded videos can be saved in industry-standard WMV, AVI, DivX, XviD and MP4 files that facilitate uploading or distribution to the Web. Using the WMV output, for instance, recorded video files can be posted directly on websites without further processing. Converting videos take a lot of time and may diminish video quality. Since a WMV output is possible, recorded videos can be published, saving the user money as well as time.
Other features of the software include:
• Screen scheduling
• Automatic launching and recording a URL at a specific time
• Producing and distributing self-playable executables
• Publishing recordings while continuing operation on other capturing tasks
• Drag-and-drop method can be used to define a screen area to be captured; when a window is targeted for capturing, the capture area locks on the window even as it moves around the screen.
