Record Desktop: This option records your computer display. If you have multiple displays connected, you're able to
choose one of them, but ScreenFlow is NOT able to record multiple displays simultaneously. In ScreenFlow, you don't need to define a capture region. It records your entire computer display and then you can crop the video and do more editings with ScreenFlow Editor.

Record Video from. This option records video from any camera connected to your computer. You can also choose from multiple cameras.

Record Audio from. This option records from any microphone connected to your computer.

Record Computer Audio. Check this option to record all sounds on your computer. The ScreenFlow audio driver must be installed to use this setting.

Step 2: Editing Screencast

When you finish your recording, ScreenFlow will save recording files to your computer and a new project will be automatically generated so you can easily edit the recorded media on the timeline or on the canvas. You need to export your screencast. And all the changes will not alter your original recording.
