NetPlay Software releases Instant Demo v. 4.0, an easy-to-use Windows screen recording application that creates Flash movies for demonstrations, presentations and training. Instant Demo records screen activity up to 20 times a second, creating a true-to-life animation of your Windows desktop. Instant Demo automatically captures mouse movement and appearance, resulting in a screen recording that looks natural and requires no further editing. The Flash movies can be played on any operating system that supports Flash 4.0 or newer.
Instant Demo allows you to record all or part of your desktop. Version 4.0 introduces a new 'Pan' recording mode that automatically moves the selected recording region to track your mouse activity. This results in a movie that pans around your desktop, allowing you to record applications at true size and yet still present them in a smaller window suitable for web site presentation.
Instant Demo v. 4.0 also introduces the ability to combine several screen recording sessions into one movie. Using Netplay's unique Flash compression engine, the resulting movies can be up to 50 minutes in length.
The Trial version guides you smoothly through the demo creation process. With the simple and intuitive user interface you can create a movie for publishing in under 5 minutes. With two clicks of the mouse button you can export your screen recording to the Macromedia Flash format. Instant Demo uses proprietary compression techniques to create some of the smallest Flash screen recordings on the Internet. The Flash movies are designed to stream over an Internet connection, so even a 50 minute presentation will begin to play immediately in the viewers' browser, with no Flash pre-loader required.
Instant Demo takes full advantage of the interactive capabilities of Flash. You can add interactive mouse hotspots to your movie allowing the audience to have full control over the presentation. The hotspots can also link to a different part of the movie, another web page or even load another Flash file. Instant Demo also provides a wide range of special effects to grab the viewer's attention. Callouts, highlights and cross fades add a professional touch to your final Flash presentation.
Instant Demo provides full sound support. You can capture live sound as you record your desktop, or add sound during editing. Keyboard and mouse click sounds are automatically applied.
Whether you're a promoter who needs to create a self-running demo that prospects can view with their favorite web browser, a tech support person who needs to reduce support costs by providing self-study tutorials, or a software trainer who needs to create compelling Flash movies that explain how to use an application, Instant Demo has the tools that you need.
Instant Demo v. 4.0 runs under Windows 98/Me/2000/XP, costs $299(US) for a single-user license, and may be purchased securely online at http://www.instant-demo.com/. Multi-user licenses are available. You can download a free trial version from the same web address.
