Wellington, New Zealand – shinywhitebox today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of iShowU Studio 1.0, their newest major screen casting solution for OS X. Specifically geared towards the consumer and beginner prosumer market, iShowU Studio focuses on providing simplified post-recording editing and publishing of captured footage.

iShowU Studio shares several of the same features of the popular iShowU HD and iShowU Pro applications, including ease-of-use, camera capture, keyboard/mouse compositing, and upload services to YouTube and Vimeo. iShowU Studio also includes a full colour correction pipeline from import through to export, hardware accelerated H264 recording for Mavericks OS X, and many other useful tools.

Feature Highlights:
* Full screen editing UI (optional at user’s discretion)
* Optional capture of camera while recording
* Capture of up to two audio streams (microphone and computer audio)
* Capture of mouse and key press events
* Track-based editor that allows clip arranging
* Easy trimming of entire composition and segments
* Ability to draw various shapes (text included) at any point in time over the composition
* Easy ripple-delete
* Super easy Pan/zoom tool
* Ability to add further media
* Freeze framing
* Slicing (used to split segments apart)
* Ability to annotate audio and create freeze frames at the same time
* Crop to a smaller area than the full screen
* Grouping via Collections
* Media manager
* Publication history
* Color Correct editing pipeline
* Ability to export in 480p, 540p, 720p or 1080p
* Built in upload support for both YouTube and Vimeo

Built specifically for screencasts, the core idea behind iShowU Studio is easy capture and editing. One of the many ways iShowU Studio achieves this is by making it easy to add Pan and Zoom operations. Instead of a complex keyframe edit, the user can manipulate the movement of the camera directly on screen. iShowU Studio has also simplified how to add annotations into a recording. Users can simply choose the tool then click and drag to “draw” the shape onto the canvas.

One of the highlighted features of iShowU Studio is its Freeze Frame capability. Usually a multi-part process that includes addition of the frozen frame, recording of new audio, and setting up various opacity and audio ramps, iShowU Studio has incorporated this process into one single operation that will create the frozen frame, insert it with the same duration as the recorded audio, and create audio ramps between the new and existing audio.

“We think users will be thrilled with all the features available in iShowU Studio,” says Neil Clayton of shinywhitebox. “We’ve supercharged many of the features users have come to expect in the iShowU series like screen and camera capture, mouse highlighting and keyboard animations. Now you can edit when and how they appear. Essentially, we’ve taken the best realtime capture, mixed in ‘time’ and come up with best full-screen capture and editing program available.”

System Requirements:
* OS X 10.9 Mavericks or higher
* 4 MB RAM
