Windows 7: Expression Encoder 3 Announced, Comes with Built-in Scr

Expression Encoder 3 Announced, Comes with Built-in Scr

Today the Expression Encoder Team has announced Expression Encoder 3. Expression Encoder 3 is part of the upcoming Expression Studio 3 suite and comes packed with new features such as support for H.264 and the new Smooth Streaming technology.

And it also brings another super cool feature: Screen Capture.

Today, screen-casting has become quite popular with bloggers. Screen-casting allows bloggers to share what they are looking at on their PC screen with readers of their blog. Itís a great way to show off really neat software experiences that people should see for themselves.

With Expression Encoder 3, they are introducing the Expression Encoder Screen Capture feature. This feature can be launched right from the Start Menu (Iíve pinned it to my Taskbar in Windows 7). People can choose a specific region of their screen they want to record (or the whole screen) and choose to record audio from their microphone and video from their webcam too. It records in a special light weight codec developed by Microsoft Research that when recording video, it doesnít use up so much system resources during the capture process. That means the actual recording process doesnít steal so much system resources on your PC that what youíre recording doesnít look so hot. After recording, you can import the capture into Expression Encoder for final encoding and publishing (including some awesome new Silverlight templates).

Iíve been trying this feature out for the last couple days and it is fantastic. I am definitely planning to do a lot more screen-capture videos with Windows 7 features.

Speaking of Windows 7 features, Expression Encoder utilizes the new Windows Taskbar in Windows 7 with encoding progress being displayed. The first encoding pass appears in yellow, and the second pass appears as green. Pretty slick!

Better MP3 to M4A encoder
I just tried to encode AAC (m4a files) with Format Factory and they sounded horrible! Last time I checked, I thought AAC sounded better than MP3s in terms of acoustical quality and feedback response. And I had been using Freemake Audio Converter to make my MP3s into M4As for quite some time, but...
