Screencast released

The Araelium Group has released a new screen recording application for Mac OS X titled Screencast. The software features high performance screen capturing for smooth and fluid motion at 30 frames-per-second (fps), according to the Araelium Group. Recognizing audio from an internal or external microphone as well as system audio, Screencast optionally displays keyboard commands and highlights mouse clicks to easily convey which actions are performed during screen recording. Screencast is priced at $30, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later with QuickTime 7.2 or newer.

Screencast also enables users to export movies at multiple levels of quality to support broadband users as well as slower dialup customers. Users record a video by choosing the screen and audio options desired, as well as the capture rate and scale. Clicking the "Record" button creates a movie and records all on-screen activity.

Recordings appear in a list of movies in the Screencast window once recording is halted. Users can delete or save movies in the aforementioned list, with compression settings available after clicking the "Save" button.
