Create an macOS App Preview video

Create a screen recording, resize, edit and add a voice over

To create a macOS App preview video, you can mostly use tools already available on macOS. As the Appstore only accepts a certain video size, you probably need to resize the video to match. This is what you will need:

  • Quicktime – to create the screen recording
  • Handbrake – to resize the video, free download
  • iMovie to edit the video – use ‘App preview’ as project setting
  • Optionally use macOS terminal to create a voiceover

In Handbrake select picture settings to resize the video and crop to size:
