Create Screencasts or Record the Webcam with Debut

We have posted several applications and online tools for Screencasting and Camtasia Alternatives. Here is another nice application which doesn’t only capture screencasts but also allows you to record your webcam.

Debut is a small light weight application and the size of setup file is around 470Kbs, once installed and launched if required it will download few more components.

Debut is pretty easy to use, looks of the available buttons are quite self explanatory, doesn’t need any explanation.

Upper panel of the Debut window, allows you to switch your recording between Webcam, any other device or simply your monitor, ‘Schedule’ button allows you to start the recording at specified time from using any of the three devices, ‘Options’ allows you to select other fine settings,  etc.

In the same way, the buttons on lower panels too allow you to choose the recording area, take snapshots, add text and watermark to videos, etc.

Here is the list of features as seen on the Debut’s website –

  • Capture video directly to your hard drive.
  • Record video in many different file formats including .avi, .wmv, .flv, .asf .mpg, .3gp, .mp4, .mov and more.
  • Record from your webcam, screen or video input device (eg. VHS recorder).
  • Record almost anything – anything you can see on your monitor can be recorded.
  • Record video and audio simultaneously.
  • Create photo snap-shots at any time.
  • Add your own text captions or time stamps your video.
  • Change color settings and video effects before recording.
  • Adjust the video resolution, size and frame rate for capture.
  • Ability to burn directly to DVD with Express Burn DVD Recorder.
  • Works with BroadCam Streaming Video Server to stream over the internet.

I liked Debut, it is definitely a full featured Screencasing and Recording Software, and is very easy to use.
