Includes the mouse movements, clicks, everything. At the same time, if that is not what you want, it can all be disabled. Just make sure you do this before starting recording, and you will get a chrystal clear recording of what you want.ConsNo cons, perhaps because I am used to film editing, it was all perfectly intuitive for me.SummaryGreat tool, don't tell anyone about it. ;-) They will always think you spent 10 x the time on the tutorial Active Presenter helped you create!Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

Lots of editing options.ConsI haven't ran into any yet.SummaryI needed to convert my 2007 PowerPoint presentation into a video to post online. I had audio and custom animations that other programs would not convert. I decided to play the presentation while recording it with Active Presenter. I was able to adjust the size of the screen recorded to only record the slides. Once I was done I was able to omit the part of the video that showed my opening the slide show. I then just added my narration that I previously recorded to the timeline. You can also record narration while the presentation is being recorded but my microphone is broken. Then I converted it to a MP4. There are other file types available as well. Thank you Active Presenter!Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

Definitely fulfills my needs. Was going crazy trying to find some thing to complete that last mile of making video presentations.Conswith the program non so far. the download interface from download.com could use some rethinking.Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

I tried searching and uninstalling but couldn't identify completely what was added. The download and install process made no mention of additional software. Very deceptive!
I finally did a system restore to a date previous to install to be sure i got all the crapware removed.SummaryFrankly, I expected better of CNET. I've always thought they were a trusted site with software downloads free of garbage. Not anymore, I guess.
Totally disgusted.Reply to this review Read reply (1) Was this review helpful? (4) (1) 1 stars"Useless Malware"July 20, 2013 | By DrKeithcox | Version: ActivePresenter 3.9.1 ProsIt's good for raising your blood pressure.ConsCrashed every time I started it.
Installs unwanted spyware and malwareSummaryIt crashed every time I started it no matter what I tried to do with it. Then I discovered that the installer had installed a bunch of search engine stuff that hijacked my browser even though I had specifically selected this NOT to happen. Completely useless.Reply to this review Read reply (1) Was this review helpful? (0) (0) You are logged in as .
