The best screen recorders offer image and video capture for what’s on your computer monitors.

The Covid-19 Pandemic has caused a surge in video conferencing and webinars in the workplace, making it essential to be able to produce and share screen recordings for training sessions and other reference material.

Many screen recorders are now paying lip-service to the best video editing software with their feature-sets. Quality production value is now easier than ever to get right, allowing you to produce informative material without worrying about the technical side.

Screen recorders are standout choices for simple piece-to-camera content such as workplace announcements, but are also capable of cutting and exporting YouTube videos, and outputting live streams to larger audiences.

To help you find the right software solution for your needs, we’ve picked out the best screen recorders across Windows, Mac, and Linux, reviewing user interface, experience, accessibility to newcomers, and value for money.

And if you’d like to do some testing of your own, we’ve listed the best free screen recorders , too.

Best screen recorder overall

1. camtasia.

Our expert review:

Specifications

Reasons to buy, reasons to avoid.

TechSmith’s Camtasia is one of the best screen recording tools we’ve reviewed. It is as easy to set up as the developers could make it, the recording is flawless, the editing capabilities are incredibly powerful, and truly set it apart from most of the competition. The fact it works on both Macs and Windows is just icing on the cake. 

As well as capturing what's on screen, this fully fledged video editing solution features plenty of extras and edits on top too. Whatever you want to record, from PowerPoint presentations to games, Camtasia performs well. You're given a huge amount of control over what's recorded. For example, you can strip out or include audio, or add a webcam feed. Annotations, extra media files, transitions, titles and more can then all be dropped in with your footage. And for all that, the top screen recorder never feels too overwhelming. 

However, the best tools come with premium price tags. Camtasia is no exception, with a one-off lifetime license fee, and the option to subscribe for annual updates. Alongside the next major revision of the software, it also includes support and access to training videos. So, best for power-users and professional organizations. 

This might indeed sound like a lot, but if you’re serious about screen recording, you should definitely give this one a try, and take advantage of its generous 60-day free trial (you only need to register a free account in order to download it and check it out). Read our full Camtasia review

Best screen recorder for Mac

2. screenflow.

Apple macOS actually comes with some  of the best screen recorder tools built in – but ScreenFlow is a serious upgrade on what Apple's screen recording software can do on its own. Plus, it adds plenty of features and extra video editing tools.

With ScreenFlow, you can crop, pan, and zoom around different parts of your video recording. You're free to add annotations and callouts on top of the captured footage. It's a fully featured and intuitive video editor, as well as a comprehensive screen recording app.

As for the actual capturing part, it couldn't be any easier to use. Select your video and audio sources, and away you go. Footage from your webcam can be easily added into your main video, and the whole process is slick and streamlined throughout. A free trial is available.

Best free screen recorder

3. obs studio.

OBS Studio is our pick for best screen recorder that's free and open-source - and with good reason: available on Windows, Linux, and Mac, the screen recording and streaming software lets you effortlessly blend different sources and audio tracks together, packing in professional-grade features typically only found in expensive, premium capture tools.

Built with gamers in mind, live streaming options feature prominently, but you can just as easily save your recordings to disk. On top of that you get advanced features like noise reduction (for your voiceovers) and the ability to set transitions between your scenes. 

All of this is overkill if you just want to record a quick clip – and to the complete beginner, OBS Studio perhaps isn't the best screen recorder for you. 

When we tested out the product recently, we thought it was a great tool, though hampered by frustrating design choices and minor glitches. We also felt the user interface could overwhelm newcomers to the software. 

During our review, we wrote: "It’s a bit like you have to wrestle with its way of working, until you capitulate and have to work on its terms. It feels like there’s always one too many clicks to get the work done."

So, it's not as intuitive to set up or use as some rivals. But OBS Studio is free, open-source, and has just about every tool you need to make capture, stream, and create content. You just need to get used to the interface.

Best screen recorder for small businesses

4. easeus recexperts.

EaseUS RecExperts offers one of the best screen recorders for Windows and Mac. 

Packed with useful features, including a scheduler and GIF creator, the software can capture footage at up to 4K /60fps. That makes it a good screen capture tool for delivering presentations, webinars, gaming or just quickly showing how to perform a specific task on a computer. 

When we tested out the screen recorder, we highly rated how easy it was to set-up and use. In addition to capturing your screen (or an area of it) and system sounds (if you select it), RecExperts auto-detects any connected webcams and microphones. 

Because of this, you shouldn’t need to fiddle around in the settings to capture everything you need. It’s very straightforward, with an interface built for seamless navigation. 

Unfortunately, like FlashBack Express, RecExperts offers no meaningful post-production editing  tools (you can trim, watermark, and add intros and outros, but not much else). 

The free version of the tool is also little more than a trial - with a severe one-minute recording restriction. However, monthly and annual subscription plans offers unlimited screen capturing and all other tools.

Best screen recorder for photos

5. techsmith snagit.

Techsmith’s Snagit is a versatile multi-platform screenshot tool with an extensive range of post production annotation capabilities. 

You can also record your screen, including your webcam, and this is where the bulk of the improvements come in Snagit 2024.

The new features include being able to stitch clips together, giving you a form of rudimentary video editing, and alleviating the need to create the perfect video in a single take. There’s also a way to visually highlight your cursor, including a nice animation when you click on something, making it much easier for viewers to see and follow it. It’s also now possible to connect to Screencast, Techsmith’s online collaborative service.

It’s an excellent tool, well implemented, and brilliant. The screen capture side is improving nicely, if gradually, and might be more than enough in its current state if your needs are simple.

You can try Snagit for free for 15 days, and you can purchase it for $63, which includes a year of support and upgrades (further upgrades are $35).

Best screen recorder on a budget

6. ashampoo snap.

Ashampoo’s Snap is a PC-only screen capture tool that aims to let you take images and videos of your desktop, and any software you might choose to run on it.

The image capturing side of things is great, with numerous options both before and after taking the shot, and the editor is filled with tools to let you customize your photo as much as you’d like.

By contrast, the video section feels more like a work in progress, with limited tools, and few options. Even the toolbar works in a different way here (it disappears when taking an image, but remains on the screen during video capture), making both sides of this software feel like two separate entities bolted together against their will.

Still, it is good value at $13 per year for three computers, or a one-off fee of $40 for a single device.

Best basic screen recorder

7. icecream screen recorder.

Icecream Screen Recorder is ideal when you don't need the the hefty feature sets of the likes of Camtasia or OBS Studio. This screen capture software, available on Windows and Mac, is a more compact and friendly alternative - especially for those searching for the best screen recorder for low-end PCs. . 

Fire it up, click the record button, select the part of the screen to record, and you're off.

Choosing your recording area and saving your footage couldn't really be any easier, though frankly, it's not the most precise tool. The screen recording software lets you draw on your footage, add a webcam feed, zoom during captures, and select final video quality.

The free version has limits - including a five-minute time restriction. Upgrade to the Pro version to end this, and access more output formats, convert between formats, add watermarks, and schedule screen recordings. All features that can come in handy.

Best screen recorder for ease of use

8. tinytake.

TinyTake is a really simple screen recorder for Windows and macOS. It has all the features you're likely to need, none of the fluff you don't, and it's one of the best screen recorders when it comes to sharing videos and photos with others.

As for the main capturing process itself, once you've created an account (which isn't optional), you can be recording your computer screen in a couple of clicks. Map the area you want to capture, click the start button, and TinyTake effortlessly handles the rest.

And that really is all there is to it. Like Icecream Screen Recorder, it's a great if you're capturing on a low-end PC or laptop. 

if you want to add annotations, or record anything longer than five minutes, you'll need to upgrade to the paid-for version of TinyTake. For simple screen recording and easy sharing to places like YouTube, though, it's ideal.

Best screen recorder browser extension

9. screencastify.

Screencastify is a screen recording browser extension for Chrome - the perfect capture tool if you're running a low-end PC or don't want to install software on your computer.

Just because Screencastify is a Chrome add-on doesn't mean you're restricted to recording browser windows, although you can do that if you want. The tool is able to record in full-screen mode as well, and supports audio from your system or a microphone.

The extension is even smart enough to embed a feed from your webcam as well. On-screen drawings and annotations are supported, too.

So you've got lots of flexibility, even if you don't get quite as many bells and whistles as you do with other programs. To use the screen recorder without a watermark and for more than 10 minutes at a time, a paid upgrade is required.

Best screen recorders: FAQs

What is screen recording.

Screen recording lets you capture the action happening in individual windows, the whole desktop, or selected area of your computer using software, an app, or a browser add-on. There are plenty of reasons you may need to capture your screen - they’re essential tools for content creators and live-streamers, but just as useful for sharing projects with colleagues, creating tutorials, or just grabbing content from a website for later use. 

How do I record my screen on a PC or laptop?

There are two main methods for screen recording on a PC or laptop: dedicated software or a browser extension. Browser extensions are lightweight, and typically have limited options beyond which window or area you want to capture. As a browser-based tool, they work best when you’re connected to the internet. Screen recording software tends to offer a lot more options, tools, and control over your screengrabs. Many offer useful features like highlighting screengrabbed images and editing videos. 

How do I screen record on my Android or iPhone?

Most modern phones have screen recording and screen capture tools built in. For example, on the latest Android phones, pressing and holding the power button lets you take a quick screenshot, with a screen recorder option tucked in the notification area. With it being this easy, casual users may not need a screen recorder app for their mobile device. Regular users, however, will find several great options in the App Store and Google Play Store - just make sure you trust the developer and check what data the apps capture.

How to choose the best screen recorder for you

When choosing which screen recorder is best for you, there are five main areas you’ll need to explore. 

+ Use Identify what you need to capture. Some of the best screen recorders are ideal for a specific purpose - for example, OBS Studio is the best for recording games, but might not fit in the workplace. 

+ Platform Decide which device is capturing footage. While most desktop options have screen recorders for Windows 10 and Mac available, you’ll need to find separate alternatives for iOS and Android.

+ Budget Work out how much your budget is. Top-end screen capture tools like Camtasia offer professional-grade recording and features, but those perks come at a premium. 

+ Extras Many of the best screen recording software tools let you annotate, add text and cursor actions. Others come loaded with video editors. Find which has the tools you need included. Always check which parts of the screen can be recorded, and the output resolution and format. 

+ Experience The best screen recorder is the one you enjoy using most - and that’s entirely subjective. Look for the capture app that best fits your workflow, needs, and experience level. 

How we test the best screen recorders

Testing the best screen recorders, we start by assessing how well the software performs. During operation, we expect to see the very best screen capture tools running smoothly on the device it’s intended for; exported videos should play perfectly and stutter-free. 

We evaluate how closely the screen recording software meets the needs of its target user-base. Those looking to record meetings have different requirements to Let’s Play-ers, and the software should be designed with those users in mind. 

User experience, and the interface, is important. It’s about finding a balance between powerful features and intuitive use. 

More complex recording software, like OBS Studio, should be accessible, even if the learning curve is steep, while streamlined tools like Screencastify and TinyTake should still properly record footage, even if the interface is simple or sparse.

The best apps also pack in plenty of features, to help craft professional-looking videos. We’re not simply looking for the largest toolset - users expect the largest useful toolset, with features that help them achieve their goals. Again, these should be clear and accessible to all users, and function above and beyond what’s expected.

How to Record a Presentation with Webcam, Narration, and More

The design uses a bright blue to green gradient background with dynamic lines and shapes, suggesting movement and digital communication. This image is ideal for content related to creating and recording digital presentations, webinars, or instructional videos.

Everyone has, at some point, put a load of time and effort into creating the perfect PowerPoint presentation, only to use it once or twice. But isn’t it a shame for all that hard work to be discarded so quickly? Is every slide deck destined for deletion after just a couple of uses? 

Isn’t there a better way to make the most out of your presentations? Well, yes. Yes, there is. 

Rather than simply creating and presenting your work once or twice, recording your presentations can give them a new lease of life. Whether it’s a data report or a self-recorded PowerPoint, you can record a presentation in real-time, or in advance to make it available on-demand.

In this guide, we’ll explore two distinct ways of recording your presentation. First, we’ll discuss how to record a presentation from PowerPoint with audio and webcam, and then we’ll look at how to turn your .ppt slides into a video.

Benefits of Recording a Presentation 

As well as there being many different ways to record a presentation, there are also many benefits of recording them. So, before we show you the ‘how,’ let’s talk about the ‘why.’ 

  • Encouraging asynchronous communication : One key benefit is fostering asynchronous communication . By recording presentations, you’re letting your audience engage with the content in their own time, breaking the constraints of time zones and scheduling conflicts. This also ensures your viewers can absorb information at their own pace, and revisit it as needed.
  • Boosting SEO : You can use your presentation to create a YouTube video and share it on your website to increase your online visibility and attract prospective customers. This can be a great way to expand your audience, increase web traffic, and establish yourself as an expert in your field.
  • Perfecting your presentation : Whether it’s in-person or over Zoom, you don’t get second chances with live presentations. However, a pre-recorded keynote lets you perfect the content and the narration before anyone sees it. This is a great way to combat stage fright while honing your presentation skills and building confidence.

With this in mind, turning your slides into a video is a no-brainer. It’s an easy way to grow your audience and make the information you’re sharing more accessible and easier to digest.

How to record your presentation (with Snagit)

Depending on your audience and the type of presentation you need to deliver, TechSmith’s Snagit could just be the perfect tool for recording your PowerPoint. With its user-friendly interface and advanced features, Snagit is ideal for capturing top-notch presentation videos, in just a few clicks. 

Now, there’s no denying that presentations are better when you can see the presenter… Fortunately, Snagit lets you capture your screen and webcam at the same time to create a Picture-in-Picture video.

In this section, we’ll guide you through the steps to record your presentation and webcam with Snagit. 

Step 1: Open video capture 

First, open Snagit and navigate to the Capture window. Select the Video tab, and start by clicking the big red Capture button.

Step 2: Select a recording area

Next, you’ll be prompted to choose which parts of your screen you want to record. Use Snagit’s orange crosshairs to select a specific region, window, or your entire screen. 

Step 3: Configure recording settings

With the Video Recording toolbar, you can set options like Cursor Capture and Effects, System Audio, and Webcam. 

If your webcam isn’t showing, click on the webcam icon. If you have an external webcam, select the one you want to use by clicking the dropdown arrow next to the webcam icon. 

Step 4: Adjust your webcam

Next, adjust your webcam options to ensure your Picture-in-Picture recording looks how you want it. Here you can change the Picture-in-Picture placement as well as the shape and size of your webcam recording. You can even toggle between Picture-in-Picture and fullscreen webcam modes as you like.

The best part? You can make these adjustments even while recording.

Step 5: Manage recording

When you’re ready to roll, hit the Record button and click the Stop button when you’re finished. It’s that simple! 

And remember, if there’s an interruption (like an unexpected visit from the mailman), just hit Pause. It’s okay to take a break — your video won’t be ruined by a little interruption.

Step 6: Edit your video

Once you’ve finished recording, Snagit will automatically open your video in the Snagit Editor, which is super easy to use. From here, you can make light edits to the footage as needed. 

For example, if you need to cut or trim your footage , you can! Here’s how: 

  • Set Start Point : Drag the Start handle (green) on the timeline to your desired starting point.
  • Set End Point : Similarly, drag the End handle (red) to where you want to end the cut.
  • Review the Segment : Before making any cuts, you can review the segment by dragging the Playhead (white) left and right across the timeline. This ensures you’re only cutting the footage you intend to.
  • Make the Cut : Once you’re satisfied with the selection, click the Cut button, which will pop up once you’ve made a selection.

And that’s all there is to it! If you want to go the extra mile, you can also use Snagit to save individual frames of your video as images , which can be used to create a thumbnail for your video . 

How to record a presentation from PowerPoint with audio and webcam

Now, Snagit is great for recording less formal videos in a flash, but if your presentation is intended for a particularly large or important audience, you might be looking to create something more polished. This is where TechSmith’s Camtasia comes in. 

Camtasia is one of the smartest and most intuitive pieces of editing software out there, but it also makes for a pretty nifty screen recorder too. Camtasia is great for recording presentations when you need more control and editing powers over the final product. 

But best of all, Camtasia streamlines the process by letting you record your presentation and voice over directly within PowerPoint. 

Step 1: Set up your presentation video recording

If you’re a Windows user, you’ll have the option to include a PowerPoint Add-in Toolbar when you install Camtasia. While this feature isn’t currently available on MacOS, the Camtasia Add-in Toolbar allows you to start, stop, and control your recordings from within PowerPoint — so you don’t need to switch between applications.

Screenshot of how to record a powerpoint presentation with the Camtasia add-in toolbar

Just open the presentation you want to record and locate the Add-in toolbar under the Add-ins tab. 

Don’t see the add-in toolbar? Go to File > Options > Add-ins, to enable it. Click on the Manage drop-down, select Disabled Items, then click Go. If the Camtasia Add-in is listed, select it, and click Enable.

If you’re an Apple user, don’t panic! You can still record your screen (with audio) on a Mac using Camtasia, and it’s just as easy. Alternatively, you can skip ahead to the next section and import your slides directly into Camtasia. 

Step 2: Customize your recording options

Now let’s walk through each of the options on the toolbar before we begin recording.

Screenshot of the Camtasia add-in toolbar to record powerpoint

Record audio

The microphone button controls whether or not audio is recorded as part of your presentation. When you enable it, you’ll be able to record your narration using a microphone.

If you are planning to record audio, this is where you’ll select your microphone. If you want to record great audio , we suggest using an external microphone, rather than the one that’s built into your laptop. 

Some of the best microphones for recording video are likely to be less expensive than you think. But, if you’re on a shoestring budget, even the mic that’s built into your headphones could produce better audio than your laptop. 

Once you’re set up, be sure to test the mic and adjust the volume slider as needed. You’ll also need to decide whether or not to record your system audio, which is any sound that comes out of your speakers, such as email notifications. 

Record webcam

If you have a webcam, you can also record your camera during the presentation to create a Picture-in-Picture clip — just as you can with Snagit! 

screenshot of adding webcam to a presentation recording

To customize even more of the recording settings, click the Recording Options button. Here you’ll find settings that let you record with a watermark and adjust your video frame rate . There are a few more options too, but the default settings should work just fine.

When you’re ready, click OK to close this window and save any changes made.

Step 3: Record your presentation

The final step is as simple as clicking the Record button in the toolbar. This will launch your slides into the Presentation Mode and start recording.

When you exit Presentation Mode or reach the end of your slideshow, you can either continue recording your screen, or stop recording and save your file. Pretty easy right? 

Before you get started, let us show you another way to turn your presentation into a video, without recording your desktop . 

How to turn your PowerPoint presentation slides into a video

Another way to create a video from your presentation is to import your PowerPoint slides into Camtasia. This way you can adjust how long each slide appears on screen, as well as add Behaviors and Annotations to personalize your presentation and highlight important information. 

By importing your slides into Camtasia, and recording your voice over separately, you get a lot more flexibility with the editing process, which means you have more control over the finished article. 

If you do decide to record your audio separately, you might want to take a look at TechSmith’s Audiate . This advanced audio recorder will transcribe your voice over in real-time and let you edit the audio file as if it were a text-based document. We don’t want to brag, but it’s probably the best way to add a voice over to a PowerPoint . 

Regardless of how you decide to narrate your PowerPoint, here’s how to turn your presentation into a video: 

1. Import your PowerPoint slides

First, start by importing your PowerPoint slides directly into Camtasia. Once your media is imported, you can edit it by dragging your slides into the Editing Toolbar.

screenshot of how to add powerpoint slides into camtasia

You can now add the images to the Timeline, and edit them like any other media in a Project. 

screenshot of powerpoint slides in the camtasia media bin

If you drag your slides to the Timeline, the slides will be placed in the order of the presentation, each with a default 5-second duration.

screenshot of powerpoint slides in the camtasia timline

With your presentation on the timeline, use Ripple Move to create space in between slides to adjust the timing of each one. To do this, hold shift, then click and drag.

screenshot of how to adjust the timing of powerpoint slides in the camtasia timeline

Once you’ve imported your slides and adjusted the duration of each one to correlate with your voice over, it’s time to start editing. 

How to edit a presentation video (in Camtasia) 

Add behaviors.

Firstly, add some visual interest with Camtasia Behaviors . A Behavior is an animation that brings movement to your slides, making them stand out on screen. This is a great way to bring parts of your presentation to life and take it from ordinary to extraordinary — because nobody likes a boring presentation . 

To add a Behavior, click and drag the Behavior you wish to use onto the slide you want to animate. Once added, you can adjust the Behavior using the Properties tab.

Add annotations

Another good way to grab and direct your audience’s attention is to add some Annotations, which are great for highlighting important information.  

To insert an Annotation, click the Annotation tab on the left side of the screen and drag it into the designated slide. You can then re-position and edit the Annotation in the Properties tab as needed.

Recording a PowerPoint Presentation, the FAQs

Absolutely! Both Snagit and Camtasia are excellent choices for recording a professional and polished presentation. Snagit is perfect for no-fuss recording and editing. If you require more sophisticated editing capabilities, Camtasia is the ideal choice, offering the added convenience of recording your slideshow and voice over directly within PowerPoint.

Click the Record button in the toolbar to launch your slides into the Presentation Mode and start recording. When you exit Presentation Mode or reach the end of your slideshow, you can either continue recording your screen or stop and save your file.

If you’re planning to record audio, select your microphone in the recording options. The microphone button controls whether or not audio is recorded as part of your presentation. If you have a webcam attached to your computer, you can also record your camera to create a Picture-in-Picture clip, perfect for showing the presenter during the presentation.

With Snagit, you can conveniently record your voice over as you go through your presentation, capturing both the audio and visuals in one go. If you’re looking for more advanced recording and editing options, you might also consider using Camtasia, which allows you to record your voice over while presenting. For even more control, use Audiate to record your audio separately and then import it into Camtasia for fine-tuning.

Camtasia is one of the most popular video presentation makers with a huge user base.

Ease of use is the huge selling point here, and it’s the reason it’s ranked so high on our list of best video presentation software. This program is super quick to learn and doesn’t require a lot of technical know-how.

Camtasia’s screen recording software makes it easy to capture specific windows or your entire desktop. You can also easily upload your media files and place them in the order you want on the timeline.

The editing capabilities of Camtastia’s video presentations software are also extensive and simple to understand. Easily crop your videos, cut parts you don’t want, and adjust the audio to create the final product you envisioned.

  • Edit audio and video with ease. When the recording is over, Camtasia will pigeonhole the output so you can edit system audio, video, cursor, and mic separately.
  • Use your webcam. Just activate your webcam when screencasting, and Camtasia will save your live recording as a separate track.
  • Add as many tracks as you want. Camtasia offers an expandable multi-track timeline that may include screen content, several audio tracks, effects, callouts, etc.
  • Easy trimming and cropping of video clips . Cut and join video fragments in just a couple clicks.

  • Easy to publish and share. You can share the output on YouTube, Google Docs, MyPlaces, and others – right from the program dashboard.
  • No web-based option. Unlike many online video presenter solutions, Camtasia is a heavy piece of software that requires installation and some space on your HDD.
  • No support for a digital camera. Camtasia was designed to work with USB webcams, not digital cameras, so TechSmith makes no promises here. Some DV cameras were reported to cooperate smoothly with Camtasia but it’s still a matter of chance.

Just choose the template, drag and drop your graphics (use your own or choose from their huge stock library), and then publish and share your videos with one click.

If you’re looking to make animated videos quickly and without spending a lot of money, this is a great choice. Of course, if you’re looking for something that allows for much more customization, Wideo might not be your ideal video presentation maker as it does really heavily on its templates.

  • Quickly create high-quality animated videos
  • Choose from pre-made templates and tweak to your desire
  • Easy-to-use interface compared to other video presentation software
  • Big graphics library
  • Very intuitive interface.  Create your videos with no previous video editing software experience required.
  • Great templates to choose from.  Make your video quicker by using Wideo’s templates.
  • Create a video in as little as 5 minutes.
  • Add your own video files or choose from a huge library of stock footage. The choice is yours.
  • Use of templates makes this video presentations software less customizable than some other options
  • Lower subscription packages have pretty strict limitations, include video length

Limited free version available. Basic plan is $19/month ($228 billed annually), Pro is $39/month ($468 billed annually), and Pro+ is $79/month ($948 billed annually). Paying month-to-month will have higher rates than those above. Click here to try Wideo free .

PowToon is freemium intuitive video presentation software that helps create animated slides combined with audio, narration, and embedded videos.

If you’re looking to turn written materials into quick explainer videos, PowToon’s video presentation software offers an intuitive, easy way to deliver a nice-looking message to your audience.

There’s no experience needed to create videos with PowToon. The whole process is pretty simple and straightforward, and the results are professional. However, some features on this video maker are a bit limited depending on which plan you use.

  • Easy interface. It somewhat resembles PowerPoint but turns out much simpler. The user just has to pick a template, go through the editing screen, add items from the image library (figures, backgrounds, speech bubbles, etc.) – and voila!
  • Timeline. This feature matches the animation panel in PowerPoint, with a number of obvious limitations. For instance, slides can only be 20 seconds long. Also, the selection of animations is pretty poor — just 12 options. Nothing to write home about.
  • Sounds. PowToon allows you to use one sound per presentation. You have to pick whether to go with a background theme or a voice narration.
  • Transitions. PowToon’s dynamic transitions are fun to deal with. Transitions make the presentation flow smooth and the outcome more engaging.
  • Usability. PowToon is really great for somebody who lacks skills in designing slides. Developing a deck in PowToon is as easy as dragging and dropping items on the screen and tweaking the timeline. No frills, no resource-hungry extras.

8. iSpring Presenter

iSpring Presenter is a handy alternative to Adobe’s product, offering an easy solution for transforming a PowerPoint deck into a video presentation. This is important because over 90% of presentations are made in PowerPoint!

With the iSpring Presenter, you can add a narrator/talking head to your video, quizzes, and more.

This is a great video creator for educators and business training professionals and one of the best PowerPoint add-ins available.

It’s worth noting, however, that the iSpring Presenter video presentation maker does come at a pretty high cost ($470/year)  in comparison to some competitors.

  • Create courses in PowerPoint. iSpring saves all PowerPoint effects, including animations, transitions, and embedded objects in the output.

Like the other reviewed programs, this web-based video creator makes it pretty easy to create short clips and videos.

There are plenty of editing tools, free graphics you can incorporate in your videos, music and sounds, and other features to help you create a quality video with minimal fuss.

The interface is pretty straightforward and doesn’t take much time to learn. Even if you’re not an experienced video creator, you should be able to use this without having to learn too much.

Moovly is also a web-based video presentations creator that needs no software installation.

The extended plans encompass greater storage capabilities, video quality and export features, and remove the length limitations of the free version.

10. Animoto

Animoto is a popular video creator that has both free and paid plans available for users.

The free version is actually pretty good for what it is. You can easily create pretty good animated videos in a short amount of time, but there are some drawbacks. Free videos have the Animoto watermark on them, fewer customization options, and only come in standard definition (720p).

The paid version of Animoto has more customization options available, including access to over 3,000 music tracks, over a million licensed stock photos and videos, tons of fonts to choose from, and more.

Animoto’s video presentation maker doesn’t require a ton of technical know-how to use, but it definitely works best when you have a clear vision for what you want your video to look like.

  • Dozens of professional fonts for text overlays

11. Animaker

Animaker describes its app as “A platform for beginners, non-designers & professionals to create Animation and Live-Action videos for every moment of our life.”

One of the things I like about this video creation software is you can make both animated and live-action videos. A lot of these programs usually only allow one or the other. This gives you the flexibility to create the exact type of video you want for your individual project.

This cloud-based program is super easy to use. There’s drag-and-drop functionality for adding things to your video, a massive library of 100 million images and videos to pull from, over 1,000 templates you can use to quickly make a video, easy resizing for various platforms, and even 4K capabilities.

  • Sometimes lag issues due to web-based application

Animaker pricing is between $10-$49 a month, depending on which plan you choose. Free trials are available for testing out this video editing program.

Lumen5 is an AI-powered online video maker with a simple drag-and-drop functionality that makes it easy for people of all skill levels to create videos.

The real feature and selling point here is Lumen5 can take your text — say from a blog post, article, or training — and convert it into a video.

The process of uploading your text, choosing the format of your video, selecting themes, and building out your final product is pretty seamless.

Lumen5 will choose images and highlighted quotes from your content to use in the video slideshow, but you can easily edit these selections if you’re not happy with them.

All in all, the videos you can create with Lumen5 are pretty basic, but they can be great for platforms like Facebook and Instagram.

  • Drag-and-drop functionality requires no experience or tech savvy
  • Web-based service, so you don’t have to download anything
  • Solid library of royalty-free images

What is Video Presentation Software?

Video presentation software allows you to create and edit videos for a wide range of applications. From educational videos to corporate training films to marketing clips, video presentations come in all different types.

The style of video presentations can also vary greatly. Some programs allow you to create animated, cartoon-style videos while others are great for using real-life, live-action video.

What to Look for When Choosing Video Making Software

Finding the right video presentations software is essential to creating a successful final product that meets your needs.

While all of the options above are great, this isn’t a one-size-fits-all thing. What works for one user might not be ideal for another.

Some of the key things to consider when choosing video making and screen recording software include:

  • Will the software allow you to create videos with your existing equipment? You don’t want to have to invest in a ton of extra equipment just to use the video presentation software.
  • What level of knowledge and experience do you have with video editing?  Many of the best video presentation software programs are super easy to use and require little to no technical knowledge.
  • What kind of videos do you want to create — animated video, live action, slideshows, or something else?  The best video presentation software varies greatly depending on the type of videos you need to create. So choose one that fits your needs.
  • What features do you need for your video — text overlays, voiceovers, animations, stock footage, slide transitions, etc.?
  • What format do you need your video to be in — HD, standard def, Instagram or Facebook dimensions, etc.? Here’s a great guide to video formats for different social platforms.
  • What’s your budget?  Just because an app is more expensive doesn’t mean it’s better. The best video presentation software for your needs might in fact be cheap or even free!

Once you know the answers to these questions, you can find a video presentation program that best suits your specific needs.

A Final Word on Video Presentation Software

As this roundup reveals, video presentation software is, indeed, a thriving segment in the modern content authoring ecosystem.

It’s not easy to make a choice, yet the criteria are rather simple. Make sure the solution fits your everyday needs and doesn’t exceed a reasonable budget.

Otherwise, it’s all about the content and making sure you have the public speaking skills to deliver that content effectively when you create a video presentation.

13 Best Screen Recording Apps for 2022 (Tried and Tested)

best app to record video presentation

6. Adobe Captivate

13. obs studio, wrapping up.

Spread the word

The best thing about screen recording tools is that there are so many ways to use them. From creating YouTube videos , tutorials , product demos for your prospects, and courses for your students or employees, and you can even rely on some to support your articles with GIFs.

Nowadays there are online meeting apps that offer a range of features to enhance your virtual meetings, from screen sharing to real-time collaboration, ensuring productive and efficient communication with your team.

With most screen recording apps you can record everything you do on screen (or on a section of your screen). Some tools also allow you to edit the recording, turn it into a full-fledged presentation or course, and even stream it. On top of this, you’ll want to consider the complexity of the app, available assets libraries, collaboration options, and integrations with tools you’re already using.

We’ve tested 12 of the best screen recording apps for Mac, Chrome, and Windows to help you decide which one is best suited for your needs. But first, let’s have a look at the general points to keep in mind.

Tips for choosing a screen recording app

When making your initial list of best screen recording software, go through these steps:

  • Decide which features you need. Divide these into must-have and nice-to-have features.
  • Opt for multi-platform tools if you have a large team or just need the tool to be available anywhere. Once you’re on a tight budget, also pay attention to how many users you can add to one plan.
  • Give the trial version a test before making the purchase. Note that some tools won’t allow you to test all features for free so reach out to their customer support team to see if they can offer a demo.
  • Don’t worry too much about sound editing options . You can use Krisp noise cancelling app to remove background noise and echoes on your recordings.  Along with its HD voice feature, it will ensure your recordings sound just like studio ones,— without requiring post-production sound quality editing. You can also use Krisp to cancel noises during your remote meetings on Zoom, Google Meet, and more.

Where it lacks:

  • It’s one of the most expensive choices on this list but the price is motivated by its complexity. So while you won’t have to worry about missing features, it’s not a fit if you don’t regularly use it.

Adobe Captivate is a screen recording app for Mac and Windows that was designed for e-learning. In fact, it’s more of a video/course creation tool you can use for online tutoring . Companies also use it to create compliance and soft-skills courses for their employees through interactive slides and videos. 

The best part? You can create multi-module branched courses and use out-of-box assets for supporting learner interaction and quizzing. I recommend going through the free webinars and the Adobe Captivate Certification Program beforehand to make sure you’re using the tool to its full capacity.

Pricing: Starts at $33.99/month/subscription or you can buy an unlimited license for $1,299.

Why you need it: 

  • Includes features you won’t find with other tools like converting PowerPoint presentations into videos and even setting up VR walkthroughs and mobile-ready courses.

There are a number of handy tools which can help you make a video presentation by recording your desktop, voice and cam. Here are a few free and paid video capture software for making professional video presentations.

This is one of the best free screen recording applications you are ever likely to find. It comes with built-in features that enable recording the desktop and a player to preview your recording before you can save it as an AVI or FLV video file.

You can find out more about this free video capture software from the link below which provides the download link for the software, with a detailed review of how to use Free Screen Recorder.

You can avoid installing the accompanying software by clicking ‘Decline’ when you are asked to install such apps during the setup.

“I love the thousands of templates it has for presentations, documents for us to edit, the varied elements it has, the ease of use and the easy design. Besides the fact that I can share with one or more people, so we can work together.” Talita A. on G2  

Canva has a free version, but with some limitations.

The Pro plan is available for $12.99/month or $119.99/year, offering extra features such as access to more templates, the ability to upload custom fonts, and saving templates as brand kits.

5. Vyond - video presentation software for animated video presentations

Vyond is another video editing software for creating animated videos and video presentations.

Its features include the ability to create relatable characters and add your own dialog and sound. The software also allows for video editing with customizable templates, characters, and props to keep the message on-brand.

You can share your video presentations by providing a link with view only, copy only, edit, or full access permissions. Additionally, you can download videos in HD.

  • ‍ Visual styles: You can choose from three different visual styles - contemporary, business friendly, and whiteboard - to set the tone for your animated video presentation.
  • ‍ Templates library: You can access Vyond's library of templates to save time and avoid starting from scratch when creating your animated video presentations.
  • ‍ Audio and lip syncing: You can record audio in Vyond or use an external platform, and then assign the audio to a character for lip syncing.
  • ‍ Shared spaces and libraries: You can easily share folders and media assets with your team from the account level, and securely share your video presentations with relevant collaborators.
“I like that you can change out characters and scenes with two clicks without it affecting or moving your characters out of alignment. Other powerful features include a wide range of animations for characters and a good selection of assets.” Laureen B. on G2

Vyond has a free trial available for users to test the software. The "Essential" plan costs $25/month but includes a Vyond logo watermark in the bottom left corner of each video. Other plans start at $54/month.

Well, that would be our analysis of the best video presentation software of 2023. 🙂

The best presentation software in 2023

These powerpoint alternatives go beyond the basics..

Hero image with logos of the best presentation software

The latest presentation apps have made it easier than ever to format slides and create professional-looking slideshows without giving off a "this is a template" vibe. Even standard PowerPoint alternatives have updated key features to make it easier than ever to collaborate and create presentations quickly, so you can spend more time prepping for your actual presentation.

If, like me, you've been using Google Slides unquestioningly for years, it's a whole new world out there. The newest crop of online presentation tools go way beyond the classic slideshow experience, with new features to keep your audience's attention, streamline the creation process with AI, and turn slide decks into videos and interactive conversations.

I've been testing these apps for the past few years, and this time, I spent several days tinkering with the top presentation software solutions out there to bring you the best of the best.

What makes the best presentation app?

How we evaluate and test apps.

All of our best apps roundups are written by humans who've spent much of their careers using, testing, and writing about software. We spend dozens of hours researching and testing apps, using each app as it's intended to be used and evaluating it against the criteria we set for the category. We're never paid for placement in our articles from any app or for links to any site—we value the trust readers put in us to offer authentic evaluations of the categories and apps we review. For more details on our process, read the full rundown of how we select apps to feature on the Zapier blog .

When looking for the best presentation apps, I wanted utility players. After all, slideshows are used for just about everything, from pitch decks and product launches to class lectures and church sermons. With that in mind, here's what I was looking for:

Pre-built templates. The best presentation tools should have attractive, professional-looking templates to build presentations in a hurry.

Sharing and collaboration options. Whether you plan to share your webinar slides later, or you just want to collaborate with a coworker on a presentation, it should be easy to share files and collaborate in real-time.

Flexibility and customization options. Templates are great, but top presentation apps should enable you to customize just about everything—giving you the flexibility to build exactly what you need.

Affordability. Creating compelling presentations is important, but you shouldn't have to bust your budget to make it happen. With capable free tools on the market, affordability is a top consideration.

Standalone functionality. There's no reason to use multiple tools when one can do it all, so I didn't test any apps that require and work on top of another presentation app like PowerPoint or Google Slides.

Familiar, deck-based UI. For our purposes here, I only tested software that uses slides, with the familiar deck-based editor you expect from a "presentation" tool (versus, for example, a video creation app).

While many apps now offer AI features in one way or another, I found many of these features to be lacking still—they're often slow, struggle to pull in relevant imagery, and yield wildly inconsistent designs. For that reason, I opted not to make AI features a strict requirement (for now!), and I've still included apps that don't offer AI. (Of course, if you opt for one of those, you can still easily get AI-generated images from a separate tool and copy them into your presentation app of choice.)

Beyond that, I also looked for presentation apps that brought something unique to the table—features above and beyond what you can get for free from a legacy solution like PowerPoint or Google Slides. (And I opted not to test any brand new apps that are still in beta, since there are so many established options out there.)

Here's what my testing workflow looked like:

I went through any onboarding or guided tutorials.

I created a new deck, scanning through all available templates, noting how well-designed they were (and which were free versus paid).

I added new slides, deleted slides, edited text and images, and played around with other content types.

I changed presentation design settings, like color schemes and background images.

I reviewed and tested the sharing and collaboration options.

I tested out presenter view (when available).

After my first round of testing, I went back into the top performers to test any unique or niche features like AI, brand settings, interactive content, and more. With that, these are the best presentation apps I found—each one really brings something different or radically easy to the table.

The best presentation software: at a glance

The best free presentation software, canva (web, windows, mac, android, ios).

Canva, our pick for the best free presentation app

Canva pros:

Excellent free plan

Tons of amazing templates for all use cases

Feature-rich

Canva cons:

The Magic Design AI tool is still inconsistent and not super impressive

Canva offers one of the most robust free plans of all the presentation apps I tested. The app delays account creation until after you've created your first design, so you can get started building your presentation in seconds. Choose from an almost overwhelming number of beautiful templates (nearly all available for free), including those designed specifically for education or business use cases.

Anyone who's accidentally scrolled too far and been bumped to the next slide will appreciate Canva's editor interface, which eliminates that problem altogether with a smooth scroll that doesn't jump around. Choose from a handful of preset animations to add life to your presentations, or browse the library of audio and video files available to add. And Canva also has a number of options for sharing your presentation, including adding collaborators to your team, sharing directly to social media, and even via QR code.

Present directly from Canva, and let audience members submit their questions via Canva Live. Once you share a link to invite audience members to your presentation, they can send questions for you to answer. As the presenter, you'll see them pop up in your presenter view window, so you can keep the audience engaged and your presentation clear. Alternatively, record a presentation with a talking head bubble—you can even use an AI presenter here—to share remotely.

Canvas has added a number of AI-powered tools , but I wasn't super impressed by them yet. When I asked the Magic Design tool to generate a presentation from scratch, for example, the result was a bunch of unrelated images, inconsistent design, and surface-level copy. These features will likely improve in time, but for now, you're better off starting from one of Canva's many great templates.

Canva pricing: Free plan available; paid plans start at $119.99/year for 1 user and include additional features like Brand Kit, premium templates and stock assets, and additional AI-powered design tools.

The best presentation app for AI-powered design

Beautiful.ai (web, mac, windows).

Beautiful.ai pros:

True AI design

No fussing around with alignment

Still allows for customization

Beautiful.ai cons:

No free plan

Generative AI features aren't great yet

If you're like me, editing granular spacing issues is the absolute worst part of building a presentation. Beautiful.ai uses artificial intelligence to take a lot of the hassle and granular design requirements out of the presentation process, so you can focus on the content of a presentation without sacrificing professional design. If I needed to make presentations on a regular basis, this is the app I'd use.

Many apps have recently added AI design features, but Beautiful.ai has been doing it for years—and they've perfected the UX of AI design, ensuring the tool's reign as the most streamlined and user-friendly option for AI design.

The editor is a little different from most presentation apps, but it's still intuitive—and you'll start off with a quick two-minute tutorial. When creating a new slide, scroll through "inspiration slides" to find a layout you like; once you choose, the app will pull the layout and automatically adapt it to match the design of the rest of your presentation.

With 10 themes, several templated slides, over 40 fully-designed templates, and 23 different color palettes to choose from, Beautiful.ai strikes a perfect balance between automation and customization.

While Beautiful.ai doesn't offer a free plan, paid plans are reasonably priced and offer sharing and collaboration options that rival collab-focused apps like Google Slides. And speaking of Google, you can connect Beautiful.ai with Google Drive to save all your presentations there.

Note: I did test the newly released generative AI feature (called DesignerBot) and felt it wasn't much to write home about. It's great for adding individual slides to an existing presentation—automatically choosing the best layout and matching the design to the rest of the deck—but as with most other apps, it struggled to generate a quality presentation from scratch.

Beautiful.ai pricing: Plans start at $12/month for unlimited slides, AI content generation, viewer analytics, and more. Upgrade to a Team plan for $40/user/month to get extra collaboration and workspace features and custom brand controls.

If you're a founder looking for an AI presentation tool for your pitch deck, Slidebean is a great Beautiful.ai alternative for startups. The app offers a number of templates; a unique, content-first outline editor; and AI design help that you can toggle on or off for each slide. I didn't include it on the list mainly because of the price: the free plan is quite limited, and the paid all-access plan starts at $228/year.

The best presentation app for conversational presentations

Prezi (web, mac, windows, ios, android).

Prezi interface

Prezi pros:

Doesn't restrict you to standard presentation structure

Lots of customization options

Prezi Video lets you display a presentation right over your webcam video

Prezi cons:

Steep learning curve

Struggling to squeeze information into a basic, linear presentation? Give Prezi a try. Unlike nearly all other presentation apps on the market, Prezi Present doesn't restrict the structure of your presentation to a straight line. The editor focuses on topics and subtopics and allows you to arrange them any way you want, so you can create a more conversational flow of information.

With the structural flexibility, you still get all the same customization features you expect from top presentation software, including fully-editable templates. There's a learning curve if you're unfamiliar with non-linear presentations, but templates offer a great jumping-off point, and Prezi's editor does a good job of making the process more approachable.

Plus, Prezi comes with two other apps: Prezi Design and Prezi Video. Prezi Video helps you take remote presentations to a new level. You can record a video where the presentation elements are displayed right over your webcam feed. Record and save the video to share later, or connect with your video conferencing tool of choice (including Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Google Meet) to present live.

Prezi pricing: Free 14-day trial and a free plan that includes up to 5 visual projects; paid plans start at $5/month and include additional features like private presentations and Prezi Present.

The best presentation app for video presentations

Powtoon (web, ios, android).

Powtoon pros:

Timing automatically changes based on the content on the slide

Can toggle between slideshow and video

Can orient presentation as horizontal, vertical, or square

Powtoon cons:

Limited free plan

Powtoon makes it easy to create engaging videos by orienting the editor around a slide deck. Editing a Powtoon feels just like editing a presentation, but by the time you finish, you have a professional video. 

You can edit your slides at any time, and when you hit play, a video plays through your deck—the feel is almost like an animated explainer video. Each slide includes the animations you choose and takes up as much time as is needed based on the content on the slide. Powtoon figures the timing automatically, and you can see in the bottom-right of the editor how much time is used on your current slide versus the total presentation. If you ever want to present as a slide deck, just toggle between Slideshow and Movie.

You'll likely need to subscribe to a paid plan to get the most out of Powtoon—like creating videos longer than three minutes, downloading them as MP4 files, and white-labeling your presentations—but doing so won't break the bank. Plus, you'll unlock tons of templates complete with animations and soundtracks.

One of my favorite Powtoon features is the ability to orient your video: you can choose horizontal orientation (like a normal presentation) or opt for vertical (for mobile) or square (for social media). When your presentation is ready, you can publish straight to YouTube, Wistia, Facebook Ads, and any number of other locations.

Powtoon pricing: Limited free plan available; paid plans start at $20/month and include white-labeling, priority support, additional storage, and more.

The best presentation app for interactive presentations

Genially (web).

Genially, our pick for the best presentation app for interactive presentations

Genially pros:

Don't need a presenter (it's interactive)

You can set universal branding guidelines

Unlimited creations on the free plan

Genially cons:

Free plan has some limitations worth looking into (e.g., can only make public presentations)

While many presentation apps are built for presenter-led decks, Genially 's interactive features and animated templates make it easy to build a self-led presentation. A variety of interactive buttons allow you to show viewers additional context on hover, have them skip to any page of your deck, and let them navigate to external links.

This presentation program offers a bunch of searchable templates, including some for business proposals, reports, social media presentations, and more (though most of those are available on premium plans only). Genially also includes Smart blocks —templated blocks of content for elements like data visualizations and image galleries.

My favorite feature is the brand settings. Premium users can set universal branding guidelines that include your logo, color scheme, fonts, images, and backgrounds, among other options. Think of them like a custom template, created and customized by you, that the whole team can use. Once set, your team can easily create on-brand presentations that automatically apply your brand settings, without even thinking about it.

Plus, Genially supports additional content like training materials, infographics, and interactive images—all subject to your brand presets.

Genially pricing: Free plan available with unlimited creations and views and access to templates; paid plans start at $7.49/month and include additional download options, privacy controls, offline viewing, premium templates, and more.

The best presentation app for collaborating with your team

Pitch (web, mac, windows, ios, android).

Pitch, our pick for the best presentation software for collaborating with your team

Pitch pros:

Google levels of collaboration

Assign slides to specific team members

Start live video calls straight from decks

Pitch cons:

User interface is a little different than you're used to

Need to collaborate on presentations with your team? Pitch is a Google Slides alternative that gets the job done. As far as decks go, Pitch includes all the beautifully-designed templates, customizability, and ease of use you expect from a top-notch presentation tool. But the app really shines when you add your team.

The right-hand sidebar is all about project management and collaboration: you can set and update the status of your deck, assign entire presentations or individual slides to team members, plus comment, react, or add notes. Save custom templates to make future presentations even easier and faster.

You can also invite collaborators from outside your company to work with you on individual decks. And if you opt for a paid plan, Pitch introduces workspace roles, shared private folders, and version history.

The "Go live" feature is a personal favorite—with just a click on the camera icon in the top-right, you can start a live video call. Any team members who open the presentation can hop in and collaborate in real-time. 

Pitch pricing: Free plan offers unlimited presentations, custom templates, and live video collaboration; paid plans start at $8/user/month for additional workspace features, presentation analytics, and more.

The best simple presentation app

Zoho show (web, ios, android, chrome).

Zoho Show, our pick for the best simple presentation app

Zoho Show pros:

Simple and easy to use

Version history and ability to lock slides

Completely free

Zoho Show cons:

Templates are pretty basic

If you're looking for a simple, yet capable presentation app that's a step up from Google Slides, Zoho Show is a great option. It's completely free to use, offers a clean, intuitive editor, and includes a number of great templates.

While the handful of "Themes" offered are on the basic side, Zoho templates boast a more modern and professional design than much of what Google Slides or PowerPoint offer. And I love that you can set the font and color scheme for the whole template, right from the start.

The app doesn't skimp on collaboration or shareability either. You can invite collaborators via email or shareable link, and comments and version history make it easy to work together on presentations. Once you're ready to share, you can even broadcast your presentation to a remote audience right from within Zoho. Plus, you can one-click lock slides to prevent any more editing or hide individual slides to customize your presentation for different audiences.

You can even connect Zoho Show to Zapier , so you can do things like automatically create a presentation when something happens in one of the other apps you use most.

Zapier is the leader in no-code automation—integrating with 6,000+ apps from partners like Google, Salesforce, and Microsoft. Build secure, automated systems for your business-critical workflows across your organization's technology stack. Learn more .

Zoho Show pricing: Free

The best presentation app for generative AI

Gamma (web).

Gamma, our pick for the best presentation app for generative AI

Gamma pros:

Creates fully fleshed-out presentations from a prompt

Chatbot-like experience

Can still manually edit the presentation

Gamma cons:

Not as much granular customization

I tested a lot of apps claiming to use AI to up your presentation game, and Gamma 's generative features were head and shoulders above the crowd.

Simply give the app a topic—or upload an outline, notes, or any other document or article—approve the outline, and pick a theme. The app will take it from there and create a fully fleshed-out presentation. It's far from perfect, but Gamma produced the most useful jumping-off point of all the AI presentation apps I tested. 

Here's the key: Gamma is much more geared toward the iterative, chatbot experience familiar to ChatGPT users. Click on the Edit with AI button at the top of the right-hand menu to open the chat, and you'll see suggested prompts—or you can type in your own requests for how Gamma should alter the presentation.

Once you've done all you can with prompts, simply close the chat box to manually add the finishing touches. While you do sacrifice some granular customizability in exchange for the AI features, you can still choose your visual theme, change slide layouts, format text, and add any images, videos, or even app and web content.

Gamma pricing: Free plan includes unlimited users, 1 custom theme, 400 AI deck credits, and basic view analytics; upgrade to the Pro plan ("coming soon," as of this writing) for $10/user/month to get additional AI credits, advanced view analytics, custom fonts, and more.

What about the old standbys?

You might notice a few major presentation players aren't on this list, including OGs Microsoft PowerPoint, Apple Keynote, and Google Slides. These apps are perfectly adequate for creating basic presentations, and they're free if you have a Windows or Mac device or a Google account.

I didn't include them on the list because the presentation space has really developed in the last several years, and after testing them out, I found these behemoths haven't kept pace. If they weren't made by Microsoft/Apple/Google, I might not even be mentioning them. They're pretty basic tools, they're behind the curve when it comes to templates (both quantity and design), and they don't offer any uniquely valuable features like robust team collaboration, branding controls, video, and so on.

Some of these companies (think: Microsoft and Google) are openly working on some pretty impressive-sounding AI features, but they haven't been widely released to the public yet. Rest assured, I'm watching this space, and the next time we update this article, I'll retest tools like PowerPoint and Google Slides to see what new features are available.

In any case, if you're reading this, you're probably looking for an alternative that allows you to move away from one of the big 3, and as the presentation platforms featured above show, there's a ton to gain—in terms of features, usability, and more—when you do.

best powerpoint recording tool , how to record a powerpoint presentation with audio , how to record powerpoint with audio , powerpoint recorder , record powerpoint with voice and narration

One doesn’t need to introduce PowerPoint presentations. Such has been the impact of PowerPoint presentations in today’s internet era. Powerpoint revolutionized how presentations were made right from a classroom lecture to a board-level meeting. Approximately 35 million PowerPoint presentations are made every day across the globe by over 500 million users. Such is the magnitude of Powerpoint presentations usage every day. 

But as we become more and more technologically advanced and time-sensitive, the time spent in presentations has been put under the microscope. This has led to a new way of presentations to be created popularly known as “ video presentations ”. In this blog, we’ll look at the best PowerPoint recorder to record video presentations with audio and video. But just before that, let’s also further understand what video presentation is, how it has become popular.

What is a PowerPoint video presentation?

A PowerPoint video presentation is nothing but a video version of the slides from a PowerPoint where the presenter narrates the presentation slide by slide by adding voice, video, or both. 

Why has PowerPoint video presentations become very popular?

Spending a lot of time is quite not feasible and also it is incredibly hard to get all stakeholders for a meeting at the same time. Secondly, big presentations are tough to follow and even easier to lose track of the information shared by the presenter. 

Video PowerPoint presentations on the other hand enable the presenter to clearly explain each slide effortlessly and share it with everyone.For those looking to elevate the quality of their slides, consider using PowerPoint slide templates . Video presentations also allow the attendees to look back at the video PowerPoint presentation and recollect the data, discussion precisely.

  • Ability to record microphone, system audio, and the presentation.
  • 4K HD recording for higher clarity 
  • Cloud uploading of the video presentation for easy access
  • Customizable webcam overlay 
  • Video collaboration 
  • Social sharing 

How have we classified the five best PowerPoint recorders for creating video presentations in 2023 ?

The below list of the five best PowerPoint recorders is based on the availability of features listed above, free plan availability, ease of usage, and few other factors.

Five best PowerPoint recorders for creating video presentations in 2023:

  • Vmaker 
  • Techsmith Camtasia

best app to record video presentation

Vmaker is one of the best PowerPoint recorders currently available. The app is from the creators of Animaker. Vmaker has been carefully developed and created to enable users to create videos effortlessly. The app is easy to set up and use, users can get started to record PowerPoint presentations for free in just a few clicks. 

Vmaker presentation lets you record both the system audio (Audio coming from the presentation through videos, audio clips, etc) and the Mic (Presenter’s audio) along with a webcam overlay. If you’re wondering how to record audio on PowerPoint then this is how you do it using Vmaker.

The best thing about Vmaker is the balance between ease of recording and features that enhance the quality of the recording.

Vmaker has a webcam overlay that is effectively floating, you can move around the bubble freely, change the frame and filter of it, add custom background to make your video part of the PowerPoint video presentation engaging. The screen annotation feature enables you to add notes to particular slides which get erased automatically as you move on to the next one. 

Once you’re done recording the full presentation the PowerPoint video presentation will be automatically uploaded to the Vmaker cloud dashboard instantly irrespective of the size of the recording. Users can download the recording, share it with teammates through Vmaker shared workspace, or even better embed the video via email and share it with the concerned people. 

  • 4K HD presentation video recording 
  • Presentation recording with both system and microphone audio

How to record a PowerPoint presentation with audio

The below video perfectly explains how you can record a PowerPoint presentation with audio .

best app to record video presentation

The easy to setup nature and the ability to record PowerPoint videos for free without having to worry about the file size puts Vmaker PowerPoint recorder one of the top solutions to record powerpoint videos. 

Panapto is another screen recording tool that also functions well as a PowerPoint video recorder. Panapto is a more advanced screen recording solution that is used in businesses, schools, and universities thanks to its advanced features including a unified library, powerful search engine. Panapto also has 4K HD recording, the ability to add multiple video streaming options along with the PowerPoint presentation, custom backgrounds to record a highly clean and intuitive PowerPoint video recording. 

  • Ultra 4K HD recording 
  • Active smart camera
  • System and microphone recording
  • Multiple video modes to supplement the video presentation recording including streams

Although Panopto comes with some of the best industry features that enable you to record, collate and store PowerPoint videos. The app is more suited for sophisticated usage in big business and educational organizations. It’s not a handy solution especially if you’re looking for a tool to easily record your PowerPoint video presentations.

best app to record video presentation

Bandicam is another screen recording tool that enables users to record and create PowerPoint video presentations through screen recording . The application is very popular and has been in the market for a very long time. Users can record PowerPoint videos for a long time without any issues as Bandicam assures even over 24 hours of continuous recording. Bandicam too offers all of the essential features required for recording a PowerPoint presentation including 4K ultra HD recording, system, and microphone audio capture, screen annotations. Here’s a lit of key features offered by the Bandicam PowerPoint recorder.

  • 4H HD recording upto 3840*2160 
  • Screen plus webcam recording mode
  • System and microphone audio recording 
  • Direct YouTube uploading 
  • Zoom in and out option 

Although Bandicam is a great screen recording tool that has almost all the essential features for recording PowerPoint videos there are few drawbacks. The app doesn’t have all watermark-free recording and it restricts free users to record not more than 10 minutes in a free plan. This is a major drawback as most of the PowerPoint presentation videos go beyond the 10-minute mark. Also, the application can be purchased on a lifetime license and not a monthly/yearly basis. 

Ispring suite, unlike the three other options listed above, isn’t a screen recorder but a courseware creator based on PowerPoint that offers screen recording functionality as well. This naturally means the PowerPoint recorder has some advanced features including adding external videos, adding narration to the PowerPoint presentation, and syncing it with the slides, multiple layouts, to organize videos, presentation separately. Enabling users to create high-quality PowerPoint presentation videos. 

  • Record audio and video separately 
  • Add voice narrations and sync with the video presentation 
  • Multiple layouts to showcase the video and presentation 
  • Customizable presentations to suit your needs
  • Quizzes in between the presentation recording 

ispring suite is a great PowerPoint video lecture creation tool that allows you to create high-quality presentation videos. The features allow you to not just record PowerPoint videos but also to enhance them to a level wherein the videos can be used for elearning, training, and development. The application costs a huge sum of 970$ per user for a year. If your plan is to just quickly record presentation videos then ispring might not be the solution as it’s expensive and requires some amount of training to get started.

Camtasia is a powerful screen recorder and video recorder with added features to support PowerPoint recording. Camtasia lets you record PowerPoint videos in three different ways. Users can record their PowerPoint presentations by using the Camtasia Add-in which will by default appear if you have Camtasia installed on your computer. The other two ways include directly importing the presentation into Camtasia which copies only the slides and not PowerPoint’s UI, the last mode to record PowerPoint presentations using Camtasia is by recording screen traditionally with webcam overlay. 

  • Multiple recording options 
  • Video editor to enhance PowerPoint recording post-recording 
  • Screen annotations and enhancements while recording 
  • Built-in add-in on PowerPoint for easy recording 

Camtasia offers a diverse range of creating PowerPoint videos. Users can decide to record videos based on their requirements. However once again the main problem here is that Camtasia doesn’t come with a free version and offers only a free trial which has time limits and watermark restrictions. The paid plan is offered on a lifetime basis and is quite expensive to take the plunge right away. 

All of the above PowerPoint video recorder applications are quite versatile and offer their own set of features and benefits. Selecting one of them as the best will not be the best solution. Feel free to choose the best based on your recruitment. Do let us know in the comments section if you have come across any other PowerPoint recorders. We’ll review them and add them to the list if the app warrants the same.

best app to record video presentation

While there is a multitude of uses for video programs, the ability to record your presentation and share it across the web afterwards is paramount in the digital age. We’ve detailed the importance of good streaming services for presentations before, and we’ve also shown how products like GoReact can help you improve your presenting ability by watching yourself after you present. Here, Farshad has compiled a list of the top video presentation programs, so you can be sure your next speech reaches as many people as possible. 

While PowerPoint is the common choice for millions of presenters around the globe, some prefer to opt for video presentations. A video presentation might include a demo or a short video shared online via a platform like YouTube or even played during a Live presentation.

Benefits of M a king a Video Presentation

There can be a number of benefits for making a video presentation. This might include the utility to present a complex process or concept with the visual aid of animations and simulations and interviews of experts on the subject matter. For example, you might want to show your audience how effective your product is; using video footage proving the effectiveness of using your brand, or you might simply be looking to show a short animation to talk about a presentation topic to cover various complex details using a short video.

Many products and services now have their own dedicated YouTube channels, with tons of product demos, persuasive advertisement, and how-tos; all of which can more or less be deemed video presentations.

Unlike Live presentations, or PowerPoint decks shared online, video presentations can have a more profound impact. This is because they tend to contain footage, animations and audio that can be more effective in conveying a message , instead of mere text and verbal explanation of a presenter. Furthermore, some presenters like to record their Live presentations and make them available online in the form of videos to have a wider outreach via online video sharing platforms.

We have compiled a list of the 10 best tools for making video presentations. Staying true with our tradition of not shunning non-PC users, we have picked various cross-platform tools, with a list that has something for everyone. Including desktop and mobile users, as well as people who prefer cloud based platforms.

1) Office Mix (PC)

According to some estimates, there are as many as 30 million presentations made each day using PowerPoint. While you can add audio and video clips to PowerPoint slides, as well as export your presentations to video formats like WMV and MP4, Microsoft has provided presenters with something even more special.  Office Mix is a PowerPoint add-in for authoring videos using PowerPoint. With this easy to use add-in, you can create video tutorials, video presentations and even create interactive presentations by including quizzes, polls and apps from the Office Store.

With Office Mix you can create video presentations by recording your screen, cam & audio to produce anything from online lessons to product demos, marketing videos and the like. You can also upload your ‘mixes’ online or save them offline. Office Mix also comes with built-in annotation options, making it easy for you to create a mix using conventional PowerPoint slides.

Office Mix is currently only available for PC users and works with PowerPoint 2013 Service Pack 1 and later editions like PowerPoint 2016.

2) Camtasia (PC & Mac)

Before Office Mix, there was Camtasia ! In fact, many people are calling the former the ‘Camtasia Killer’. Having said that; Camtasia still has its own charm. There are various software recognized by the brand name ‘Camtasia’. These include Camtasia Studio and Camtasia for Mac, each of which is a complete suite for recording, editing and uploading videos online.

Camtasia comes with a plethora of handy options that can help you create video presentations, including a PowerPoint add-in which works pretty much like Office Mix. Unlike Office Mix, Camtasia isn’t free, however, the wide array of video authoring features provided by the suite are worth the cost. Moreover, arguably Camtasia can help author better quality videos.

Camtasia Studio and Camtasia for Mac can be used for recording your PC or Mac screen, with a voice-over, cam input and the option to create lessons using quizzes, surveys, annotations, callouts, etc.

While Camtasia is a paid suite, you can download it on a trial basis to test its features.

3) Snagit (PC & Mac)

Snagit is another tool that can be used for making video presentations. Snagit has been developed by the same developer as Camtasia, i.e. TechSmith. Unlike Camtasia, Snagit has fewer video authoring features. It provides some basic screencast features, with the utility to perform basic editing for your recorded videos.

With Snagit, you can capture your entire desktop, a single window or a specific part of your screen. Snagit provides the option to make videos using your on-screen recordings, screenshots, annotations and effects.

Snagit is a paid tool, which has versions available for PC and Mac users, as well as a Chrome extension.

4) Lectora (PC & Web)

Lectore Inspire is a video authoring suite which is a combination of three applications, i.e. Camtasia, Snagit and Flypaper. This all-in-one suite is best known as a platform for authoring e-learning content. With Lectora you can create video presentations, online training courses, as well as convert PowerPoint presentation to e-learning content.

While Lectora Inspire and associated tools like Lectora Online and Lectora Publisher are great for making lessons and video presentations, using Lectora can be a bit confusing. This is because Lecotra’s applications tend to be filled with so many features that it can be difficult to initially make sense of them. This is also one of the reasons we have Lectora down at number 4 on our list of recommended tools for making video presentations.

5) Articulate (PC & Web)

This is another amazing video authoring tool, best suited for making e-learning courses, including interactive lessons. Articulate includes a number of video authoring products, including: Articulate Storyline, Articulate Studio and Articulate Online.

Depending upon which Articulate product you are using, you can create online courses using PowerPoint, with rich media content, quizzes, as well as record video presentations with your screencasts, with the addition of on-screen explanations via webcam and voice-over. Needless to say, you can also publish your courses online.

Articulate products also come with characters that you can incorporate in your presentations. Furthermore, you can publish your videos in formats like Flash and HTML5. Articulate also supports publishing videos to be seen via the Articulate Mobile Player app for viewing content optimized for iPads.

6) PowToon (Web)

If you ever wanted to make video animations but know nothing about using complex graphic designing applications like Maya, Softimage or 3D Studio Max; PowToon is the next best thing! It is an easy to use web app which gives readymade templates and animated characters that you can use for making animated video presentations by designing your scenes like PowerPoint slides.

You don’t need to be an expert in graphic designing or even an advanced computer user to use PowToon. This is because you can create your animated video presentations using a step by step wizard, and a number of easy to use PowerPoint like features.

You can get started with PowToon by trying out the service via free trial. And if you find it worth your money, you can opt for a package as low as $19 to fulfill your dreams of making presentations in the form of video animations like a pro.

7) Adobe Presenter Video Express (PC & Mac)

Adobe Presenter Video Express is a video authoring software for Windows and Mac for recording videos for presentations, product demos, tutorials, etc. With Adobe Presenter you can create screencasts, change background of your webcam recording video without the need to use green screen, as well as use videos, images and desktop screen capture as background for your videos.

Adobe Presenter also supports quizzes and annotations, with the utility to publish videos in MP4 and HTML5 format.

What’s great about Adobe Presenter is that you can create studio quality video presentations, tutorials and learning courses without spending a fortune on buying or renting video recording and editing equipment. This makes Adobe Presenter a cost-effective tool for authoring videos for professional use.

8) Adobe Spark Video (iOS)

Despite being an Android guy myself, I have to admit, if there is any mobile hardware good enough for making high quality video presentations, it belongs to Apple’s iOS devices. Adobe Spark Video is an app for iOS, which can help you create studio quality videos using an iPhone or iPad device.

Adobe Spark Video borrows many features from Adobe After Effects. It combines motion graphics, audio, text and images to help you create short videos. These can include video presentations, tutorials and narrations.

9) BB FlashBack Express (PC)

BB Flashback Express is a free screen recording tool for making screencasts. I personally used this tool a few years back to create a series of short PowerPoint tutorials and it worked perfectly.

With BB Flashback Express you can record your desktop, add audio commentary, with the option to include webcam video input. Furthermore, you can schedule recordings, upload videos to YouTube from within the app, or export your videos to WMV format. The paid editions of BB Flashback also supports additional formats like MP4 and Flash.

If you’re looking for more advanced video authoring features, you can opt for the paid versions of the BB Flashback app. Below is an introductory video for BB Flashback Screen Recorder, which is the premium edition of BB Flashback.

10) Ezvid (PC)

Ezvid is a another free software for PC users which comes with a few basic options to help you create screencasts. As the name suggests, the software provides an easy mechanism for recording your videos. Ezvid also comes with basic video editing features, with the option to upload your videos to YouTube.

Ezvid has some very basic options and the interface itself is quite self-explanatory. If you’re looking for a free PC software for recording your screen, audio and webcam for making video presentations for YouTube, then Ezvid is as easy to use as it gets.

The recommended tools listed above not only include standalone apps for authoring video presentations but also software suites and web apps which can help you create different types of interesting videos using screen recordings, video footage, animations and images.

We have tried to create a list which not only includes expensive video authoring tools but also free and affordable software that you can use to create professional looking presentations. There are however, many other tools which provide similar features to the ones in this list. Our picks included tools based on rating, reputation, and ease of use to recommend the most reliable platforms for making video presentations; ranging from very complex to basic video authoring tools.

Hello Rosie I would appreciate your advice on the best tool to use to present a series of around 30 x MP4 videos as part of a charity lecture series. Each clip is around 3-8 minutes long and it is sometimes necessary to skip to another clip in the series. All clips have sound. Until now I have been showing these from a prepared DVD (burned on my desktop) via a standard DVD player but really need a replacement for this now ageing technology. Thank you and best wishes, Mike

Hi Mike I put the question out on Twitter and got this reply back. Hope it helps. I’d think any kind of media player would work. Anything that lets you make a playlist, basically. VLC Media Player seems to do well with this type of thing, but I’m certain there are many others!

Hi Rosie! I have used Articulate and Powtoon in the past, and they worked out great for me! Recently, for a particular client I started using Wideo, for product and business presentations, and I’m just loving it. The templates they have ( https://wideo.co/product-presentation-video-templates/ ) are quite useful, and you can add your own photos, sounds and clips to them. What are your thougts? Have you tried it yet? Thank you, and best wishes, Kevin

Lapse It Pro does it differently. It doesn’t come back, creating a sequential animation. You can also edit this work, making cuts, changing the playback speed, and applying a zoom effect. Lapse It Pro is downloadable on both Android and iPhone and iPad .
