What’s New in ScreenFlow 9

We’ve worked hard to make ScreenFlow 9 just the way you like it. Performance improvements and new features taken directly from customer feedback. We know you’ll love it.

Multiscreen Recording
Sometimes one screen is not enough! Whether you need a bit more space, want to show multiple applications at once, or just want to be able to record all your monitors, now you can.

 

Timeline Tools Palette
Hand, Zoom, Blade and Track Select are now in ScreenFlow! Use hotkeys to switch your cursor function to make it easier to navigate the timeline, make quick track splits, and select entire layers in the timeline!

 

Clip Editor
Preview media clips and make preliminary edits in the new clip editor. Once you have verified your media and trimmed it to size, just drop the resulting clip directly into the timeline.

 

Proxy
If you like to edit large resolution files in ScreenFlow, you can now edit a proxy instead! What does this mean? You can edit and playback more demanding projects faster than ever before.


New Click Effects
We have updated the radar click effects in the screen recording properties! Adjust the size, color, duration and blur to create the perfect click customization.

 

Major Performance Enhancements
Version 9 is packed full of behind the scenes improvements to make sure your ScreenFlow experience is the best it can be. Updated capture card support, thumbnail image improvements and manual media management are just a few of the ways ScreenFlow 9 is the best yet.

What’s New in 9.0

New Features

  • Simultaneous Multi-screen Recording – Record multiple screens simultaneously!
    • Ever wish you just had more screen real estate for your recordings, or the ability to reference another application in your screen casts without covering up content? Well now you can!
    • Easily create beautiful motion affects back and forth between multi-screen recorded content.
  • Timeline Tools Palette – ScreenFlow 9 adds the Timeline Tools Palette found in other high-end professional non-linear video editors!
    • Hand – scroll around the timeline by clicking and dragging with the mouse
    • Zoom – click and drag to select a region to zoom in on. If the mouse is clicked once (without drag) zoom into the timeline one “step”. If ‘Option’ is held, the mouse cursor will change to a zoom out and when clicking the timeline will zoom out one step.
    • Blade – When rolling over the timeline, a red line will follow the cursor. If the mouse is clicked, the timeline will have all clips split at that mouse position
    • Track Select – Cursor will change to a right facing arrow in this mode. When clicking on the timeline in this mode, clips will be selected forward of the current selection (from left to right). This is on a track by track basis.
  • Clip Editor – ScreenFlow 9 adds a new clip editing feature that allows the user to select an individual clip and view it on the left-hand side of the main document user interface.
    • From there, the user can preview the video & audio, and perform quick edits to the clip, adding the resulting clip directly to the timeline.
  • New Click Effects
    • New radar effect, sizing
  • Media Proxy – Proxy, a well-known tool found in professional non-linear video editing suites is now in ScreenFlow 9
    • When editing large resolution files, or long GOP files that will give any editor a run for its money, a lower resolution variant of the file called a proxy can be made to edit and operate with a more “ideal” format in relation to system resources.
    • What does this mean? You can edit and playback more demanding projects on the same machine. Faster!
  • UVC Capture Card Support
    • Looking to ingest a high-quality camera with HDMI or SDI output into ScreenFlow as your camera source? ScreenFlow now works with UVC capture devices!
      • Tested Devices:
        • Elgato CamLink 4k
        • AJA U-Tap HDMI
        • Epiphan AV.IO SDI
        • Magewell USB Captured HDMI G1
  • Manual Media Management
    • Many customers have asked for manual media management so that they can store, manage and re-use content more easily.
    • Well, to help those power users, you now have the option during saving to save as a packaged document (includes all your media in the same document package) or, a flat document with manual media management.
    • Manual media management will place all of your media files and Stock Media Library downloads in a user accessible location.
  • Default Canvas Color
    • Not everyone wants their project canvas color to be black.
    • Now in ScreenFlow 9, you can set the default color of your canvas for all future projects within ScreenFlow preferences.
  • Apple Hardened Runtime & Notarization
    • ScreenFlow 9 has implemented the new Hardened Runtime and Notarization security implementations within macOS 10.15 Catalina
