For starters, the home page or startup bar has a nifty and easy to use toolbar. Two buttons that are relatively easy to use and understand are the record button (red) for recording the screen, and the icon with a game pad helps you record games. Let the games begin
- On the main interface, select the game icon to record game play. This is conveniently located at the beginning of the tool bar, in bright yellow/orange.
- This mode is dedicated to capturing movie scenes specifically. This means if you are recording a 2D or 3D game like Minecraft, Maplestory and of course World of Warcraft, selecting this mode will provide optimal results. Because you plan to use these videos online, this is the perfect setting for internet streaming vids as well.
- Once you click the game pad, its color will change indicating that the software is ready to record.
- To commence recording, click on the red button or use the hotkey/shortcut F12 to achieve the same effect.
- Once you feel you have recorded enough, hit F12 to end recording. Your video will be saved automatically to your download folder.
- When you need to review what you managed to record, there is an icon conveniently located on the top of the interface that resembles a folder. Alternatively, the output tab is lower along the left part of the same screen.

Bandicam from the outset seems to be a tad more user friendly, but both provide the same services and results needed by all gamers. It is left to the consumer to decide which software gets the best results in the minimum amount of time, with minimal effort. Our choice would be Wondershare DemoCreator, perhaps because of the easy to navigate tool bar with the gamepad and record icon placed close by for convenience.
