Pros: I use ActivePresenter now for almost 3 years! I am very proud of showing my presentations to all my colleagues. The interactivity and the user-friendly approach is so great!
As a Physics Teacher, after many years, I finally found the ultimate solution to cope with the modern students needs. ActivePresenter makes teaching active, dynamic, `flashing and student-related.
All my lessons are `packed in ActivePresenter. I also incorporate the necessary text-to-speech fragments; this makes me feel completely relieved and at ease, because prepared to `cope with the group of `youngsters in the classroom.
These moments in front of the classroom are accompanied with e-learning activities. ActivePresenter presentations have full interactive options; students are really enthusiastic to work independently on tasks, modules, interactive quizzes and hard-core-physics-exercises.
Here are a few of the many things I like about the software:
Easy `basic-down-to-earth PowerPoint-like presentations with automated output; (even here, the possibilities are 100-fold compared to other tools!).
Built-in audio/video editing capabilities.
Interactive elements are available to guide the audience by an adapted path, fitting the situation or the need of the audience.
Various types of questions/quizzes.
All the results of the students can easily be stored in an LMS (with SCORM or xAPI support). You can also make an automated link to Google Spreadsheets to follow up the results!

Cons: A little bit of learning curve before you can explore all the possibilities of the software. (but after all, there is a very elaborated manual and a supporting help-desk!)

Overall: For me, ActivePresenter is perfect as an all-in-one elearning authoring package!

Thank you very much for the review! ActivePresenter has too many features that some first time users may find it a little bit to get started, that's why we're making more and more beginner's tutorials and our support is always there to help.

Pros: A good free version for evaluation and reasonably priced licenses.
Easy to use and works great in HTML5 and SCORM to upload to LMS or other sites.
Great customer support via the forum or email.

Cons: Hard to use javascript (at least for version 6) as no scripting references are available.
This would be helpful as certain action in the interactive part are missing. e.g. a play/resume button - but support is available.

Overall: Productive developing of eLearning material, notably SCORM and good customer support

Thank you for your positive review, Michael. Regarding Javascript support, we've made great improvements in the latest ActivePresenter 7 version with well documented Javascript API and an improved built-in editor. We also added support for multi-state object and other interactions. Best Regards, ActivePresenter Team.

Pros: I played with a lot of tools in this category - many are free/feature limited with Pro versions ranging from single high cost to subscriptions. Active Presenter was the best combination of features (basic timeline editing, ability to pan and zoom the screen video, various options for exporting, no recurring costs for needed features) I found.

In fairness, there is no such think as "simple" video editing. If you don't know what you're doing or don't do it frequently enough to recall all the feature locations, you'll struggle. Active Presenter is not designed for first time/one time use. It's a fairly serious program with a lot of features and options.

I appreciate that it gives me the tools and controls to do the things I need without limitations, even at the cost of a learning curve.

Cons: It feels like it's designed for more slideshow based output than full video. It's capable of both, but many of the obvious options and toolbar buttons are geared towards something other than integrated video and on-screen action.

Overall: Ability to record on screen actions and combine that with recorded video, still and audio clips to create a single merged video output.

Pros: ActivePresenter can record video, webcam with audio, system sound and take screenshot in full hd quality. The program also comes with very intuitive interface plus ever-expanding variety of video editing features. It is free and safe to use.

Cons: It lacks of video effects that many other video editors offer. Anyway, it's great for me since I seldom add effects to my tutorial video.

Great software for creating training videos.

Pros: I like this software for these reasons:
* First of all, this is a free software for in-house non-commercial uses which really suits my kind of job.
* The features present in this are at par with other paid products.
* Very user-friendly.
* Online tutorials are very informative.

Cons: These can be improved:
* Free version does not have some features like creating a table of contents for video simulation guides, animations etc.
* The screen space can be utilized more efficiently i guess.

Overall: My tutorial video creation work has become very easy.

One of the best screen capturing and video editing tool so far which is easy to use.

Thank you for the review. Can you please help by being more specifc about the Cons so we know what to improve? - "The outcomes are not the best": What types of outcomes you're referring to? And what are the (typical) issues with those outcomes? - Frustration when editing: can you give several examples? What editing functionilty make you frustrated? Thank you!

Pros: Relatively simple animation can be done relatively easy, with so much freedom and options. User interface is clean and and simple to understand and use. Most options are same as in many other video editing software solutions. Design/graphics options are FANTASTIC. Event handler is very good. User interface can be (partially) adapted to user needs.

Cons: Learning curve (for beginner) is extremely difficult. More tutorials and examples would be nice. More fonts and options regarding them are needed.

Overall: If You have enough working hours free so that You can master this software than You can make interesting and useful results.
