So this is something that i thought I would share with any budding developers out there. Mainly sharing it because it took me absolutely ages to get some good footage that i could use in the trailer that I made.
There are going to be a few pieces of software that you will need to purchase in order to be able to capture some decent footage, but what i’ll do first is explain the process of what needs to happen for you to be able to capture the footage from your device.
What needs to happen first is that whatever is done on your iPhone needs to be mirrored onto a desktop computer, either mac or pc.
Then whatever is displayed on your computer needs to be captured using a screen capture program.
So the my mirroring program of choice was Air Server.
Great little app, really easy to use, simply need to install, connect to the wi-fi that your iDevice is connected to and your pretty much good to go!! Just need to activate Air Play on your device and whatever is done on the device should be mirrored on your desktop.
Standard License is $14.99
Once you have your device display on your desktop you will need to capture what ever is shown on the screen. My program of choice was Screen Flow.
Priced at £63.85.
Really easy to use again and allows you to export in a number of formats and resolutions as well. These 2 programs in conduction gave me some really smooth footage which was used in the trailer, tried a few other programs which just didn’t get the same results.
Hope this was helpful
