I had never heard of Debut, but having seen it mentioned on this site, I decided to try it. Coincidentally, over the past couple of days, I've been looking for a program to help me record my webcam. I'm certainly not a computer wizard, but I have decent knowledge of "normal" software and some experience with video editing, etc.

Downloading and installing was straightforward, and the program found my webcam immediately. I should mention here that I'm using a Logitech 930e, which the manufacturer considers a "business" tool and for which Logitech doesn't produce any "consumer-type" software.

Debut offers a variety of settings to record webcam videos, but in about an hour of trying, I wasn't able to find a single combination that enabled me to successfully capture a decent-quality video. During my attempts I received a variety of error messages, but none that helped me find a solution.

I finally gave up and decided to uninstall the program. This led to my biggest complaint about the program: After the uninstall, I had to reboot my machine. I then did a file search and a registry search to see what was left from the installation; there was quite a bit of leftover "garbage". I was, however, able to delete pretty much everything.

I readily admit that my problem with Debut might have been caused by my limited computer knowledge and my webcam. Whatever it was, I didn't have a good experience with the program.

Review by hdfills on Jan 4, 2020 Version: 5.0 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

I have tried this software for a small screen recording project, and I have found it fairly easy to use right away. I have used H.264 encoding with the High Quality / Larger Filesize option, and size of recording area 1164x648. For some reason, the audio came out as mp3. For a 40 minute recording, the file size was about 1.7 GB
I am still experimenting, but so far, I am very happy with the package.
I am trying to find a way to capture the video with minimum compression in order to apply my standard encoding procedure afterwards.
