I caught the tail end of a Matterport Webinar today called "Matterport for Real Estate - December 2017"

There was a mention of the IceCream Screen Recorder being suggest to make additional Teazers or GIfs.

Has anyone used the IceCream software giving it a thumbs up or down? The page looks a little iffy for me on the Free Downloads.

I currently use ScreenCast-O-Matic Pro to make a video. Then go over to EzGif to make an animated gif.

Would this software be able to record straight to Gif? Does their version leave a logo like the free version of ScreenCast-O-Matic?

Hi @VTLV. I haven’t used Ice Cream but wondering what your experience is with ScreenCast? Are you experiencing any choppiness in your videos after screeen capture?

Hey @Snap, ScreenCast-O-matic works great.

It's pretty simple to hit the record button with a nice little count down to get started with different screen size and recording options. There's no lag holding up memory. The editing is pretty simple to use. I paid for the pro version for 3 years quite some time ago. Having their logo in the Free version wasn't cutting it.

So I'm Not experiencing anything bad with ScreenCast-O-Matic, it's a great product... for video screen capture. I was looking for a faster way to hover over a Matterport tour and pull out a quick Gif without having to go through too many more steps of making a video. Then saving, re-uploading and cutting the video down to a short enough piece for a Gif.

When my family interrupts me for any reason, I can be set back an hour or so before returning back to my desk. Then I take another who knows how long trying to catch back up to where I left off. So squeezing out one more thing in a minute or so can go a long way, where other projects never come to fruition.

I would like to one day, hit record, pull out an Mpeg4 and get immediately start working on a Gif without a bunch of hurdles. I find Gifs getting plenty of interaction on Social Media. So I thought I would toss out the word on IceCream before investing a bunch of time learning about it.

@VTLV have you ever tried Snagit? It is cheap quick and easy at catching screenshots.

@frstbubble, I have not tried Snagit. I see they have a trial version available. Costs a bit more than Screencast-O-Matic. I may give that a shot.

However, someone either on WGA or [elsewhere]. Had referred to a screen recording App now available on iPad. I’m going to go that way first since the iPad is so much smoother than a mouse or joystick or even the recording with a hand in the iPad shot.

Perhaps going for the smoother video is the more important element now vs gif ability. I’ll keep you guys posted.

Looks like Techsmith Capture App could work with Snagit.
