  1. Keynote, World of Warcraft, etc. iShowU HD will automatically capture the full screen when an application itself goes full screen.
  2. YouTube, Blip.TV and Howcast built-in.
  3. Multi Channel Mixer (OSX 10.6 only). HD Pro lets you capture every audio channel independently (so if you want to remix just one later, that is possible).
  4. In general, Final Cut prefers video with no skipped frames. iShowU HD Pro lets you specify whether or not gaps in a recording should be filled or expanded to fill the correct frame duration.
  5. Low CPU mode is available on builds for machines running Leopard or Snow Leopard only (versions with number < 2.3.8). Put another way, Low CPU mode isnt available for Lion, Mountain Lion or Mavericks.
