That is best illustrated by how easy it makes it start recording videos from your screen in just a few steps:

  1. Define the region that you want to capture by resizing and positioning the capture frame or using one of the preset sizes.
  2. Choose between recording the system audio or audio from a different device (such as a microphone) by clicking to tick the appropriate icon.
  3. Click ‘REC’ and the recording will begin after a 5-second lag.
  4. Click ‘Stop’ when you want to stop the recording.
  5. Click ‘Save’ and choose a format or use one of the hundreds of presets built into the software to automatically optimize the video for a specific device or platform.


If you want, you can set Movavi Screen Capture Studio to automatically stop recording after a certain amount of time has passed by enabling the timer. Additionally, you may find it more convenient to manage the recording with the hotkeys that are available.


Make no mistake, Movavi Screen Capture Studio doesn’t stop there, and also has the capability to edit and improve your videos. It can enhance the quality of videos, cut and combine video segments, apply special effects and filters, insert customizable text, and much more.

Whether you want to simply optimize your videos for a particular device or transform them into professional-looking content is up to you, but you needn’t look any further than this software.

  2. Hey Philip and Aurelian,

    When you run an online business then most of the time, a tool like this is needed. I have tried to find a tool which can capture the whole screen in a big font.

    Hopefully, this would work for me. It seems quite good in its work.
    Thanks for sharing with us.

    Hi, Aurelian and Philip.

    This’s a great tool for screen recorded video. I used to try the tool and it works well.

    However, I like Camtasia as it has more features for screen recording and video editing. What’s more, I’m using Adobe Premiere and After Effect. Those video editing software is working great.

    Thanks for sharing about this in detail.

    Hi Philip, thanks for sharing the Movavi, everything works smoothly. However while playing games, the sound is delayed from the video itself a bit. I used to record my computer screen with acethinker screen recorder. It’s a free web-based application, you don’t have to download or install anything. Share it here as an alternative to Movavi Screen Capture Studio.
