Hello everyone,

I need your help finding some decent screen capture software that
doesn't drop frames when recording animation intensive software.

I'm having problems with software like flash as well as proprietary
software.

Thanks
Trish

How many fps do you want? That spec would be a good way to filter. Hypercam
has a box to fill in the capture/playback fps, but I've never been able to
get more than 15 fps work (havent played with it in detal tho)

I've tried that one, and it's dropping frames with what I'm trying to
record.

Just found one called Capture Cam Pro and that ones appears to be doing
the job!

Regards

Tricia

you can try techsmith's camtasia studio. it captures screens very
effectively.

I have not yet tried it, but a colleague just sent this to me:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/camstudio/ (free/open source)

Also, I have used Camtasia in the past to capture animated screen grabs of a
3D modelling application. I believe the FPS was around 15 (?), but adequate
nonetheless.

Sorry I drop an opinion without having any experience with programs of
sorts, but ...
In the PC world this type of issue gets solved by doing one or more of
the following:
1- install memory, many RAM megabytes
2- replace the Pentium by a faster one
3- replace the IDE disks by SCSI disks
4- update the video drivers
5- install a more expensive video controller
Any of these actions will either add more power to your computer or
relieve it from a burden so it has more power available for the fps
task.

Some alternatives to think about:
- slowing down the actual program (should be doable in Flash if you
have sources, for example)
- capturing the video using an external device
