iShowU InstantAwesome realtime screen recording for macOS
Welcome to realtime screen recording like you've never seen before! iShowU Instant is the fastest, most feature filled realtime screen capture tool from shinywhitebox yet. It takes key features from both "Classic" and HD Pro, and merges them into a single product, making 'Instant' the only app you'll ever need to create recordings quickly.
All of the features you would expect are here, and probably some you don't! Record from any screen, enhance your microphone audio through the use of a dynamics processor, compressor and/or equaliser, add text and/or an overlay, enhance your recording with mouse and click visualization, trim front/back after recording, create time-lapse recordings, share to a wide range of online services, and more.
Built natively for Intel & Apple Silicon
Requires OS X 10.14.4 or later
Trim, Audio Dynamics / Compressor / EQ require Advanced Features, which can be purchased in-app at any time
A User Interface meant for you
Use an interface that you’re comfortable with. Want something simple? Use Basic mode. Want more power? Advanced mode gives access to all the options!
Customise your settings
Easily create presets for common editing tasks, or for different types of output. Give them custom names so you can easily recognize them.
Share to YouTube, Vimeo and all other enabled OS X services. We’ve even included an animated GIF generator!
Clean and Simple
No need to tidy your desktop, we’ll do it for you. Instant can hide your desktop icons, and change your desktop picture to a solid color or other image.
Produce Quicktime or MP4 at up to 60fps. Want to create a timelapse? You can set the frame rate as low as 1 frame per minute!
Better Camera Capture
Camera capture has been enhanced with the ability to show the camera either as a classic picture-in-picture, full screen, or completely hide it. Not only that, the transitions are animated in real time as you’re recording.
A time for everything
Start and stop recording when you want, using either durations or fixed absolute times.
Advanced Featuresavailable as an in-app purchase, anytime
Audio Dynamics, Compressor and EQ
