Taking a living snapshot of screen activity can have many purposes. Sometimes (most often, actually) you may want to share some tricks you invented, let others know about your experience with certain software, or just capture a screen video for reference either by you, other users or the support team of some company. In other, more business-oriented cases, recording a screen is a way to create simple and obvious tutorials explaining how to do something - create a complex macro in a text processor, apply some graphics filter in Photoshop, or even to teach a user to work with a program from scratch.
VSDC Free Screen Recorder don't tries to keep a foot in both camps, but this simple and 100% free tool provides much more than just basic screen video recording. Let's see: the software captures the whole screen area or a specific fragment only and writes the result to one of the supported destination formats on the fly. It also records audio from any external devices like headsets, microphones or sound cards and creates a soundtrack for the video.
The professional part of the tool involves many features that are common in this type of applications. VSDC Free Screen Recorder displays adjustable messages and popup balloons, highlights the mouse cursor and adds clicking sound when a mouse button actually clicks. All of these build a solid basis for effortless creation of video guides, presentations and tutorials of all types. And the ability to create tracking maps of mouse movements, clicks and keypresses allows to add some professional special effects and setup complex behaviors of a video tutorial. Conveniently, VSDC Free Screen Recorder is not only free, but is also very easy to use, which means you can start producing high-quality screen capture videos literally 10 minutes after the installation completes.
