ActivePresenter Portable, screen recorder - screencast software!
"Great software for creating training videos." —Jacky Nguyen (a user), Capterra.com (Mar 05, 2017)
"Compared to the alternatives in the genre, ActivePresenter is not a small program – download is 36.6MB installing to 83.4MB. But, once you see the features included in this outstanding software, you can fully appreciate the ‘additional’ megabytes." —Jim Hillier, DavesComputerTips.com (July 27, 2012)
"A lot of functionality; ability to save sessions as Projects to be returned to later; editing interface for adding text, thought bubbles and the like; ability to export to AVI, WMV, MP4, and WebM. ... Editor difficult to use because users cannot link together all the individual slides that ActivePresenter creates; Smart Capture mode is a promising idea, but poorly executed...." —Gizmos Freeware editor, techsupportalert.com (2016-05-18)
