RecoLive Capture

Bring screencasts in your multi-camera shootings

Today we release an experimental free version of RecoLive Capture, a screen capture software, compatible with RecoLive MultiCam and RecoLive Switcher for iPad and iPhone.

RecoLive MultiCam is the best multi-camera shooting application for iPad and now, thanks to RecoLive Capture, it is able to mix and record video coming not only from iPhone cameras, but also from the screen of desktop and laptop Macs. This is very useful when recording school lectures, conferences or software reviews: you can film the teacher and his PowerPoint presentation, the video podcaster and his screencast.

The captured screen appears on RecoLive MutliCam as an additional camera. Thus, you can combine this video stream with all others in real-time. Do “picture in picture” or use the “Flap” view give very interesting results.

The current release is called “experimental” because its goal is to test what is possible and what users want. So, instead of defining a product and invest lot of time designing it, we just did a prototype software, very simple and open, and we release it today as it is, for free, expecting from users reactions, suggestions and criticism which are so important to define good products.

Releasing a free and experimental version also allows us to be open, taking risks and give to users features that are not fully proven. So, we do not stop to screencasting, but we also capture secondary displays and any HD camera connected to the Mac. This includes webcams, cameras connected via FireWire, Thunderbolt or via any available capture card.

Release your creativity and share your results. We are very interested in your feedback.

Requirements

To run RecoLive Capture you need:
  • A Mac running OS-X Mountain Lion (10.8) or any newer version of OS-X.
  • A SandyBridge or IvyBridge chipset is recommended. RecoLive Capture can run without it but encoding and recording will be probably too slow.
  • RecoLive MultiCam 1.2.0 or later.
  • New: RecoLive Capture now supports any screen size and aspect ratio.

Install

The first time you launch the app, OS X could tell you that the app is damaged and can't be opened or that it comes from an untrusted source. To avoid this message and run the app, you have to allow apps downloaded from anywhere in the System Preferences -> Security. Once the app has been accepted and launched, you can restore the System Preferences as they were before. For more information, please visite the Apple's support page about Gatekeeper.
