ZD Soft Screen Recorder

A software program for recording computer screen & sound into a video file

Was born in 2005, ZD Soft Screen Recorder has been evolving for over 10 years.

High performance screen recording is always a big advantage of ZD Soft Screen Recorder. Unlike most other screen recording software in the market uses the GDI screen capture method which can result high CPU usage and noticeable system lags, ZD Soft Screen Recorder uses the GPU accelerated screen capture technology we developed to capture screen with low CPU usage and no system lags.

PC game screen rendered by DirectX / OpenGL is usually difficult to be captured by the GDI screen capture method, so general screen recording software may get black screen on DirectX / OpenGL based games, while ZD Soft Screen Recorder can capture them nicely.

ZD Soft Screen Recorder uses the most popular H.264 & AAC codecs for real-time video / audio encoding, this eliminates the intermediate files and greatly extends the recording duration capability.

Plus with tons of auxiliary features, ZD Soft Screen Recorder is able to handle various kinds of screen recording tasks such as creating software demo, capturing online video, recording PC gameplay, live screencasting, etc.

The ease of use is our top priority, so we redesigned the software UI from time to time to optimize the user experience. Now ZD Soft Screen Recorder provides both a wizard UI for beginners and a professional UI for masters.

What did our customers say about ZD Soft Screen Recorder?

"I have been trying out screen recorders for the last 4 days. I had to do a tutorial on how to change settings in Windows, and how to change settings in a feature PC FPS game. I saw yours, but it did not look as impressive as the other well known products, so I tried all the others first, probably totaling 12-15 different screen recorders. Nothing was working the way I wanted, the video and the sound were not synching, or the desktop would get captured, but when I would start the game, the screen capture would stop viewing the whole screen and only capture a small portion. Then the microphone would stop recording my voice as soon as the game started. It was a nightmare, but then… I decided to try your software. Wow! What a difference. It worked so nicely, the voice and video were synched correctly, when I started the game the recording continued so smoothly, and also continued to capture my voice, and the instructions… I have not purchased yet, but plan on it as soon as I save up the money. Just wanted to give you some encouragement, and beg you to never change your software, it’s great."
