Filmora Scrn Review: Screen & Game Recording Software You Should Try

Screen casting or recording is one essential feature required for any kind of computer user today. It is important that this feature is utilized well irrespective of the software that you use on your computer. As Windows has not yet introduced the native screen recording software yet, it has become compulsory to pick a third-party software. We have come across a latest screen recorder software lately, named ‘Filmora Scrn’ developed by Wondershare.

Wondershare is famous for its video editing software solutions. If you have been into video editing or YouTubing, you might have come across the name ‘Filmora’ from Wondershare already.

I did not expect much with Filmora Scrn though it is from Wondershare with proven stand in the video editing software business. But, it actually surpassed my expectations.

Filmora Scrn offers great customization settings before even recoding the screen or an application. Ranging from the ability to record from 25FPS to 120FPS, this simple tool simply amazes me.

How to download and install Filmora Scrn:

Step 1: Filmora Scrn is available on Wondershare’s official website and you can download it from this link. After downloading the setup file, run it.

1-filmora-screen-recorder-free-download

Step 2: Click on ‘Install’ button and wait until it finishes installation.

2-filmora-scrn-installation-step1

Setting up and using Filmora Scrn:

Step 1: After installation it will show a welcome screen with ‘Get started’, ‘Quick capture’, and ‘Video editor’ options. Click on ‘Get Started’.

4-filmora-getstarted


Step 2: It will show four modules of settings, ‘Screen’, ‘Audio’, ‘Camera’, ‘Advanced’ on this screen.

4-filmora-scr-capture-settings


Step 3: Select a section you want to customize the setup. The selected section will show a pink tick mark on its tail.

5-filmora-scr-capture-screen-size-settings


The screen recording can be setup to record the full screen, custom size or a particular application.

Step 4: Setup your screen ratio and frame rate in case of screen recording. In case of game recording, select the ‘Game’ radio button and pick your gaming application from the drop-down of all running windows on your computer. You can set to record the game up to 120FPS.

5-filomra-scr-game-recording


Step 5: Setup your audio settings here. You can choose to have desktop audio and microphone audio in the recording.

Step 6: Choose your web camera here. If you are a YouTuber and you have a camera to record self in the corner side of the screen recording, you should set it up here.

6-filmora-scr-webcam-settings


Step 7: The advanced settings section has three segregations again, ‘General’, where you show it the path to save the recording and option to GPU acceleration. I would recommend not to use this unless you have a dedicated graphics memory on your computer. This acceleration won’t be necessary for a normal screen record. If you are using this tool to record your gameplay, then you may use this option.





Choose correct encoding and hotkeys in the next two sub sectional options. Make sure the hotkeys won’t get conflict with the other software shortcuts.

Quick capture:

You can also use 'Quick capture' option to capture the screen with default microphone and camera settings. However, the quick capture will allow you to choose the microphone and camera from the connected devices.

filmora-scrn-quick-capture

Editing recorded video:

Filmora Scrn opens up the recorded video in a simple editor. I expected that it would open up in Filmora video editor studio for more control over editing. It hasn’t asked me to choose Wondershare application to edit it in.

11-loading-screen-recording


The screen reorder video is a simple editing tool. You can cut, copy and combine it with music tracks if you want. It offers a timeline with layers of editing for basic editing operations.

This video editor have various annotations to use on the recording. It contains captions, arrows, overlays, bubbles, banners and cursor effects which are useful to emphasize a specific part of the frame. In case of tutorials, they are useful to make the viewers understand well.

Filmora Scrn video editor offers two wonderful blur effects called 'Horizontal Mix' and 'Vertical Mix' to shade out the elements of the video with less patched look. If you observe the below screenshot, you would not notice where I applied this effect.

filmora-scrn-video-editor

There are opacity settings and blending mode to edit the video to the context of the content. The voice-over of the video can be detached and replaced by the newly recorded audio with few clicks.

After finishing editing, you can directly upload the video to YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo and Twitch. Obviously, you can save it different formats onto your local computer and do the uploading later if you want.

However, the recorded file will be saved as .MP4 file which can be imported into Filmora Video Editor or any other video editing software separately and can be edited in that environment.

I liked Filmora Scrn’s ability to record screen with needed customized options. The editor is what little bit disappointed me as a video editor and a YouTuber. If you have Filmora already on your computer, the ‘Scrn’ would become a perfect companion for your requirement.

Why Time Management Software is Essential for Your Business Growth

Time management software has often got negative connotation when companies have first started to use it. Especially those employees who stay active on social media networking platforms on a regular basis. But for the firms, a time tracking software is one of the most crucial parts of their management system.


Company Benefits

There are numerous advantages for deploying time tracker software in the company. In those many benefits, one of the most obvious and important ones is that it keeps the employees responsible for how they spend each minute of their working hours at their workplace. As you are already aware, there are various studies that confirm the fact that they lost millions of dollars due to employees performing non-work related jobs during their working hours.


Today will discuss some great benefits of time management software for organizations that can help you save your money.


Improved Workflow

Any business may have some moving parts and many complex responsibilities that they and their employees have to perform on a daily, weekly, monthly, or even quarterly basis. In such scenarios, time tracking software can assist in making jobs and project management remarkable efforts. This is especially true when businesses have a bounded number of employees who will be working on numerous distinctive projects. Tracking every employee's time and the amount they usually spend on each of the tasks and discovering whichever of the duties is the essential will make it simpler for them to handle all of their distribute duties.


time-management


Transparency Between Client & Company

Clients need to see how much you spend your time on each project or assignment. This is especially true if you are a freelancer. One of the hardest parts of working as a freelancer is that clients (Most of them) equate work efficiency to time you spend working. Freelancers often don’t get credit if the work is done too quickly or when clients think that they didn’t spend enough time working on a specific project. So by using this tracking software you can send screenshots and maintain complete transparency so that they can see too what you are doing.


Tracks Every Tab

At times, employees do not want to be tracked or recorded like which websites they are visiting. This could include social media networking platforms too so they use incognito tabs so that nobody can lay their eyes on them. This is where risks significantly increase because they could share company’s confidential information too. So it is extremely important to know what they do in their office hours.


Better Work Management

One more added advantage is that when too many projects come your way then the software helps you in easily managing all projects at one time as it renders transparency of the true labor involved in the completion of the assignment. Companies can utilize a manual system to record time extended on job packages, assignments, and finally programs, but that in itself will be high time to take and prone to errors. With only less time spent on time-keeping, you get to spend more productive time on catering to your customer requirements.


Accurate Payroll Processing

If you especially deal with clients who pay on time you spent on each task or project then this can be a bridge that acts as transparency between you and your clients. When you provide your clients a proof that shows how many hours you worked on each project then they can kind of build trust and can go a long way for both of you. For instance, your client can assess prospective budget by looking at how much time or how many hours you actually spent on tasks like advertising, campaign planning, etc. if you are a marketing agency. Just like that, any business can provide accurate billing with the total exact time that was spent on working on a particular project.


Reduce Human Mistakes

The processes made by us are usually susceptible to human mistakes. Shifting from a manual recording method to a tracking software can actually make the efforts simpler and help avoid the possibility of data-entry errors. One more thing, having a centralized place for all your important data can assist you in preventing or at least minimize the risk to some extent. Though not immediately, it will reduce errors and redundancy by automating the processes.


Manage Your Activities

By tracking your daily tasks or activities, you can also have a greater control on whatever you do. You can avoid doing tasks that are not useful or wasting your time. Because once you get an idea of what activities that take too much time or not useful at all, then you can modify them according to your workflow so that you can have a better schedule. For instance, if a task takes too much time to complete then you can divide it into multiple smaller tasks and complete one at a time or one in a day. By understanding what that exact thing is that you should do at the particular time, you will have a better sense of purpose as to decide which task should do done first.


Analyzing the actual time needed to finish the activities is of enormous use in improving future estimations. In addition, it provides a foundation for comparison when executing process changes within your organization. Indeed, the benefits of having the right time management software within your organization, regardless of the size whether big or small, are priceless and provide you, as the pioneer, with confidence in making your business decisions.


Other Benefits:

  • More precise project scheduling
  • Minimizes your production costs
  • Data can be utilized in legal matters
  • Gives you with the ability to concentrate on your business process improvement efforts
  • Enhanced workflow
  • On time delivery
  • Significantly contributes to your success


What kind of benefits did you or your company experience with regards to the time management software? Do let us know by commenting in the section below.

SendPulse Review: Try SendPulse and You Won’t Regret Your Decision

Email Marketing is still one of the best techniques of gaining leads and conversions and I’ve talked about a bunch of them so far on this blog. This time, I would like to talk about the new one, which I found interesting from the dashboard to reporting for easy campaign management.

 

There is nothing interesting like a free plan forever. Putting all the restrictions aside, the free plan of any service offers a chance to get our hands on it before we could actually buy a commercial plan. SendPulse offers such a free plan which captured my attention to give it a shot.

 

There is an easy registration process and you will be send straight to dashboard. The best thing about the SendPulse is the user interface. It is easy to navigate and switch through from one to another.

 

sendpulse-dashboard

 

Managing mailing list is easy

The managing of the email list is easy as available in the other top service providers. SendPulse offers a neat user interface to add or remove emails from the email lists.

 

sendpulse-mailinglist

 

We can import entire email list from CSV, XLS and XLSX file formats. Email lists can also be added from various other email marketing service providers like Constant Contact, GetResponse, MailChimp, UniSender and ecommerce platforms like WooCommerce, Bitrix 24 and Zapier.

 

SendPulse offers the complete control over the managing of the email lists and collaborated with the easy and multi-dimensional reporting for campaigns.

 

Creating campaigns is simpler

Creating email campaign is simpler as we would see in the other top notch services.

 

sendpulse-email-campaign

 

You need to add the mailing list in the address book and your from email address followed by sender’s name and subject line. This email campaign interface may not the newer one comparatively to the other campaign service providers but the templates are so convincingly good. They provide the email templates that you would be needing based on the special dates like Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

 

sendpulse-template-editor

 

Selecting the template will take us to the HTML editor which is way more comfortable and easy to edit with drag and drop tools. The SendPulse’s email template editor is the best one I’ve seen in email marketing tools category so far.

 

New SMS campaigner

The SMS campaigner is the uncommon feature that SendPulse offers, even in a free plan but with limited 10 free text messages. You will have to buy the SMSs as you go.

 

sendpulse-sms-campaign

 

You can reach out your leads through the SMS promotions as registered in compliance of the law of the land.

 

The scheduling option is interesting but it would have been much better if any looping option is made available like wishing the festival greetings on the same date every year and reminding them about the renewal of subscription like that.

 

Clear reporting

The best of SendPulse stands at the reporting. The campaign reports are clear, graphical, colorful and educating.

 

 

The reports include the details like the number of delivered email, opened, clicked and spam reported. The reports also show the data like the locations, cities precisely of the subscribers. It would help us to target the specific people of that location at a particular date and time. They also include the device and software that they were opening the emails so that the marketers can moderate their technicalities next time for better conversions.

 

All those reporting perspectives are kind of normal in any email reporting tool but the representation of them is what matters at the end. As said, SendPulse create better reporting representation comparatively.

 

The special feature is that it reports the heat map of click on the email templates that we have used for the campaign so that the next campaign can be improved better with better positioning of the visual elements of the promotion.

 

Tutorials and useful blog posts

SendPulse has its own knowledge base of tutorials and information on their site. They have an email marketing blog and even have an YouTube channel with tutorials demonstrating how to use the email marketing tool for better productivity.

 

Conclusion

SendPulse is a very good email marketing tool which is actually underrated but deserves a fine position on the top list of email marketing tool. That’s what I feel, what do you think? Did you try SendPulse email service? Comment your thoughts and experience with it below.

FotoJet Makes a Good Alternative to Canva But Not Fully

Canva is my favorite online photo editing tool and I wrote about its features in the past. I won’t complain that it didn’t have features that I wanted the most, yet I used the most of it in preparing graphics for my blog posts and social media campaigns.

 

With the times, I got used to all the free designs of Canva interface and I kind of got bored of them.

 

Photoshop is my lifebuoy when the internet connection troubles me. But, loading all heavy Photoshop tools every time by quitting the browser is a fatigue that you would not expect to get.

 

During that times, I found out this new online free photo editing app which makes a good alternative to Canva, and with more new designs and possibilities. I am not paid a shell for this review and it is wholly out of inspiration that this tool has provoked me to do.

 

To make the possibilities of FotoJet in a simple 3 word tagline, it makes a collage maker, graphic designer and a simple photo editor.

 

Let me show you what a collage maker tool from FotoJet can do.

 

FotoJet’s collage maker offers us a few types of collages and frames to make a good photo frame. The photo templates for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year are also available on their collage tool.

 

What I like in FotoJet

The simple drag and drop interface reminds me of the Canva’s beautiful interface. Like Canva, FotoJet also has the drag and drop interface with the facility of the bringing media into the workspace from the computer.

One more interesting thing that I found on FotoJet which Canva couldn’t offer is that the importing of images directly from Facebook into the workspace.

 

There are different readymade designs which can easily be modified in a minute and used. Canva also have this feature, but I am specific about the type of readymade templates that FotoJet has.

 

What I hate in FotoJet

The ads. Yes! The ads in the free graphic designer are annoying. They are as disturbing as the malware or adware installed on the computer. It distracts a lot. To get rid of the ads, FotoJet suggest us to upgrade to the FotoJet Plus plan.

But, Canva is clean even in its free designer. The fluidity of the application interface of FotoJet is spoiled by the addition of the bottom bar and sidebar ads. Canva on the other hand yet offers the clean interface.

 

FotoJet makes a good alternative to Canva but cannot dominate it with some minor glitches and interface distractions.
