I LOVE ScreenFlow, but three issues are preventing me from leaving Premiere behind.
I absolutely love ScreenFlow's intuitiveness, I've recently recorded & edited an entire Video series with it for a company called PreSonus Audio Electronics. The only thing that was annoying is the fact that I could've been so much faster in getting this job done if I didn't have to switch between ScreenFlow and Premiere all the time. The three main reasons for that were:
1. No proper Video Filters to color-correct DSLR camera footage beyond the absolute basics.
2. (much more severe): HUGE color inaccuracies. Nothing that ScreenFlow exports looks quite like what was imported - No matter in which format you export (and I've tried them all...ProRes, h264, HEVC...). This makes white balancing etc. an absolute nightmare.
3. Nesting is great...but why do nested clips have to have an independent timeline?! This would be such a great feature to quickly merge your task bar-hiding screenshot with your screen capture. But nesting becomes a crazy headache when you're doing this too early on in editing. As soon as you start splitting nested clips, you're screwed!
...my two cents. ScreenFlow is being so, so close to being a sensational platform. As soon as these features are implemented, I feel that it can truly become serious competition for the current industry standards (at least when it comes to content creation - movie making is another story).
Gregor Beyerle If QA can't reproduce the issue, they often need to communicate with the user to follow up on exact steps or specific equipment. Some issues may even involve third-party equipment or software that was only discovered in follow up.
Software such as this is heavily dependent on a lot of configuration aspects and QA doesn't have or know every possible variation.
CraigS Yeah, I know where the filters are. I'm asking for your help to tell me which settings to use based on the info you asked me to send to your developers and the photos you asked me to send to you in this thread. It's your software. You are the expert. I'm a consumer trying to export a video and need your help. Hence, the help forum. Please be specific with settings that will reverse the effect your software is creating.
Gregor Beyerle ,
I have the same problems as you and instead of coming straight here, I entered with a ticket and there was a stubbornness about my problem that I ended up giving up being questioned as if I was crazy about my problem. I do not speak English and using a translator, I recently visited this forum and I have already seen a dozen complaints about it and always an immense reluctance from the support to SEE what is very clear, or red. There is a problem in the new versions that did not exist in the old ones, I have used Screenflow for more than 6 years and this color difference problem is recent, but it is a BIG PROBLEM.
I hope to see the solution or at least the support to admit that the problem exists and that it is not a difference in viewing software or that we have to analyze ProRes to see that everything is the same.
