AceThinker Screen Grabber Pro is one of the best software to take screenshots, edit them, create webcam and screencast videos, and much more. One software for all the screen capturing needs.

Gone are the days when we used default Prntscr button to take a screenshot of our desktop screen. Things have been changed in recent years, and many screen capturing tools with various customization options have come into the market.

There are two ways you capture your desktop screen; (i) still screenshots and (ii) screencast videos. Both have become imperative as far as online publishing is concerned.

I am a blogger, and I have to take screenshots while writing how-to guides or some other types of articles. Working with default Prntscr was good, but I was not able to make my screenshots look attractive. Later, I found Skitch, Greenshot, and many other tools that help me make my screenshots look attractive.

Also, nowadays audience is more interested in watching videos rather than reading textual content in most cases, so we need a video making software that helps us create webcam videos and screencast videos as well.

No doubt, there is an endless list of such tools that are used for taking screenshots and creating screencast videos. However, I recently found a superb software which offers everything at one place be it screencast videos, webcam videos or capturing still screenshots, everything you can do by using one software. Isn’t it cool?

I am talking about Screen Grabber Pro developed by Acethinker which meets all your screen capturing requirements just at 29.95 USD. It is well compatible with Windows 10/8.1/7/Vista/XP, and it is available for Mac as well which works fine with Mac OS X 10.6 and above.

User Interface of the Software

You can see the screenshot of Acethinker Screen Grabber Pro which looks very simple. It is very easy to use software that you can use it effectively even if you are using it for the first time.

Features of Acethinker Screen Grabber Pro:

# Screencast and Webcam Videos

As I said earlier in this article that nowadays people prefer How-to videos over How-to textual content, so that bloggers have started creating videos as well to explain the stuff.

Screen Grabber Pro is one of the finest tools for creating such screencast videos. However, it can record webcam videos too. And, that makes it a robust software for creating videos as people nowadays create how-to videos by combining webcam recording and screen recording. Yes, you might have seen many videos in which the creator first shows himself and talk about the guide and tells the introduction part. After that, the screencast part starts, and at the end again the creator shows himself to say the final words.

Since this software has both webcam and screen recording feature, creating such videos using this is easy and great.

The software offers tools as well to edit the videos.

On the home screen, you will see a “Start” Menu which when you click you see the options as you can see in the above screenshot.

  • Region – It lets you select the area on your desktop screen to record. So that you can just record a particular part of the screen and not the complete page.

Look at the above screenshot in which I have selected a specific area for recording the video. You can set width and height using the options if you have some specific dimension requirement for the video otherwise you can drag to resize.

Once the area selection is done, click on OK, and the video recording will start in 3 seconds. You will see below pop-up with 3,2,1…. Countdown to start the recording.

During the video creation, you can click on stop button to stop the video.

Now, you can play the video.

  • Full Screen – Process is all same as above, just the difference is when you select this option, it records the full screen.
  • Around Mouse – This option lets you record the screen with the mouse movement. Wherever the mouse cursor is placed that region is recorded
  • Web Camera – This option allows you to record a video of yourself.
  • Only Audio – This option lets you record only the audio and not video.

I have recorded a sample video using AceThinker Screen Grabber pro that you can watch below:


# Audio Input

This feature offers you four different settings for audio that is recorded while creating videos.

As you can see in the screenshot above, there are four options:

  • None – No audio will be recorded if you select this option.
  • System Sound – This option when selected only records sound that your computer system generates. It doesn’t record anything you speak or outer sound.
  • MicroPhone – This option when selected records sound using microphone which means whatever you speak, or other sound goes in through the microphone is recorded.
  • System Sound and Microphone – This option allows you to record both system and microphone sound.

You can select any option as per your requirements.

# Screenshot

Screenshot option allows you take still screenshot of the screen which can be saved on your computer system.

As you can see the screenshot above that you get two options:

  • Capture Mouse Cursor – This option when checked enables you to capture the mouse cursor as well. However, in most cases we don’t need to capture the cursor. So, keep it unchecked.
  • Hide me when Screenshot – This feature when checked minimize the Software home UI from the screen.

And, to capture screenshots, you just need to click on “Screenshot”, and you will see selection that you can drag as per your requirement.

There are tools that you can see at the bottom that enables you to mark the items as required. Other options on the right side are also given for uploading it to the cloud, for social sharing, taking the print, etc.

For example, I have done some random marking with the editing tools given there after taking a screenshot which you can see below.

With so many options Screen Grabber Pro is the right choice for all of your screenshot requirements.

When you click on Options, you will see a number of settings that you can use your way. Apart from those, there are many Keyboard Shortcuts listed as well which comes very handy specifically while recording videos.

Settings are divided into two tabs namely General and Recording as you can see above.

One more feature you will find under Settings is Task Scheduler that enables you to schedule recordings, and it works automatically.
