Very clever usage of the iPhone’s 4k video capture capability from David Gewritz who recorded a video in 4k, then used a Mac screen capture app to do the pan and zoom without a camera operator.
In a screencast, you often want to zoom in and out on a detail, say a menu item to be clicked or an option to be set. ScreenFlow provides the ability to set those zoom and move points, along with a lot of other features. Normally, you’d use it to record the screen (which I did in the video included in this article), but it also allows you to import media assets and do the same with them.
While the features page for ScreenFlow didn’t say it supported 4K, I decided to give it a try — and it worked. In fact, it worked amazingly well. It’s also very easy to get started with. As the video demo I’ve included with this article shows, you really only need to learn a few basic features to get up and running.
Clever. And it works.
