Bandicam is a screen capture program which has been released on Microsoft Windows, Mac, Android and iOS. The software can be used for taking screenshots of any device on which it has been installed and the changes which have been made to the screen settings can also be noticed. By using Bandicam, the users can either focus on a part of the screen or take the whole screen into account as well by using a variety of modes.
Bandicam has been developed by Bandisoft and released in a variety of languages which include English, French, Chinese and Korean. The program has amassed hundreds of thousands of downloads on all platforms which shows its incredible success. The software can be downloaded for free on trial for a limited amount of time and has to be paid for to get its full version with all the features.
The most fundamental feature of Bandicam is its ability to take screenshots on any gadget on which it has been installed. It contains two modes which can be used for taking the screenshots. One mode is the ‘rectangle on the screen mode’ in which a selected area on the screen can be recorded and saved. The area can be selected anywhere on the screen and the user has the option of zooming in and taking a close up of the data on show.
The other mode which can be used is the DirectX/ Open GL window mode and in this option, the program can record content which has been created in the DirectX or Open GL. Bandicam also has a light on the window the color of which shows the status of the software. When the color of the light is green, it shows that Bandicam is ready to record. Similarly, when the recording begins, the color gets changedto red.
Bandicam also makes a video of whatever is happening on the screen. In the trial version, the user can make a maximum of ten second video and the program puts its name as a watermark on top of the screenshot or the video during that period. Bandicam is very easy to use and handle and quite simple to understand and these qualities make it a must have for a device on which taking screenshots is not possible.
Bandicam has a long range of advantages but it also has a few drawbacks. The trial version can make a maximum of ten second video and places a watermark on the video as well which can prove to be quite annoying at times. The video can only be made at a fixed resolution which is ‘2560×1600’ and the user cannot change it even if he wants to. Other than the trial version, the user can make as long a video as required provided that there is space available in the hard disk.
