Screencast Software for Mac: What are you using?

I hope this is an appropriate place to post this, but I don’t know where else to turn. It seems like this group would be using similar techniques/software to what I’m looking to do.

In the past, I’ve used Quicktime but it no longer plays well with Adobe Rush or Premier.

I already have Adobe CC, and I don’t need a $700 program with a million bells and whistles, all I need to capture (at once) is:

  1. Full screen recording
  2. Audio from the system
  3. Audio from a mic

I’ve now tried OBS, VLC, Debut, Monosnap, Icecream, and none of these work (for varying reasons.) And since none of these work, I’m now very reluctant to shell out money for any software without a free trial.

Since I can’t be the only one trying to do this, I wonder what others are using. Alternately, I’ll take advice on where else to try and get help.


For those curious:

The problem with Quicktime is that it only records from 1 audio source, and there’s no built-in way to record the system audio. To get around this, one has to use Soundflower to get the system audio, then use Audio MIDI Setup to create an aggregate device to combine input from both Soundflower and the mic to create a single audio source that Quicktime can use.

This is a real pain, but it worked in the past.

At any rate, the resulting video seems all good until trying to import into Rush or Premier, and then the audio runs a half speed with the second half of the audio recording unavailable. I’ve tried to get help from Adobe, but they are completely unresponsive so far.

All software is up to date.
