In case you are searching for a simple and elegant solution in order to capture your screen then you should probably look into this software as we dig deeper into the features and characteristics of Filmora Scrn screen capture software.

So, let’s check into the key features of this software:
- The first thing about this software is that it can record up to 120 fps. While most of the video recording software tends to cap out at 60 frames per second, this software goes to whole different level to let its users to record the videos at 120 fps. It is quite useful in case you are using a monitor having a refresh rate higher than 60 Hz. This great feature of 120 Hz recording makes a huge difference especially when you are recording your gameplay of fast-paced games like Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Overwatch etc. It is quite helpful in case you wish to have the final footage to be made into slow-motion, after doing some post-production work.

It is quite useful for Facecam especially in case you are planning to record and upload any tutorial videos or your gameplay footage to YouTube. The screen recording, as well as webcam recording, will be duly displayed quite neatly in a picture-in-picture format.

Along with screen and face recording, it allows you to record audio in case you have a microphone, irrespective of whether it is in-built or dedicated one. You can easily enable or disable it as per your preferences, but it is quite a useful feature in case you are doing any live commentary while explaining things on your tutorial videos or gaming using a high-quality microphone.
- Another useful feature that caught our attention is its built-in video editor.

It is quite easy to use and doesn’t require any previous knowledge on video editing whatsoever. However, the tools which are available for the users are very much limited, and it can’t be taken as a dedicated and complete video editor for advanced users.
- One of the remarkable features of this software is its minimalistic user-interface. In entirety, this software is cleanly designed, and the controls are not at all cluttered, and this makes it quite simple for the beginners to use. All it requires is simply opening the software and hitting the F10 button in order to start the recording process right away. It can’t get any easier than this.
- When it comes to video editing, this software performs a splendid job since it makes easier to use for even the most novice and inexperienced users. Annotations, music and cuts can easily be performed within few minutes, all depending on the video size. However, it does lack advanced video editing tools which make the professional users look for alternative, a dedicated video editing software in order to meet their demands of post-production.
