Lossless Screen Recording

High Quality Capturing

Claquette is a tool that allows you to record your Mac's screen in lossless quality.
Additionally, you can capture live video and audio from attached cameras and microphones.

After finishing a recording, you can directly export a movie, upload it to the web or send it to Final Cut Pro X.

Part of your Professional Workflow

Claquette is designed for seamless integration with Apple's professional video editing tools. You can directly send a recording to Final Cut Pro X or Motion 5.

When exporting to Final Cut or Motion, Claquette will create separate layers for screen content, front window, camera video and the mouse cursor.
