Screen Capture Programs

Posted on: August 15th, 2008 No Comments

At a recent Open House, a discussion about good tools for capturing computer screens came up and I recalled that I had actually done quite a bit of research and experimentation with these types of tools. I also had put together a short write-up on my company’s internal wiki about the topic. Now I realize that others might find this information useful, so I have made it available on our main wiki site.

In a nutshell, here were my findings.

Best in Class for:

Static Screen Capture

    TechSmith’s: Snag It

Dynamic Screen Capture (category 1)

    Blue Berry’s: FlashBack

    Category 1: focuses on routine training and recording tasks where there are minimum requirements for modifying the resulting output

Dynamic Screen Capture (category 2)

    TechSmith’s: Camtasia

    Category 2: focuses on special applications requiring post editing, scaling, and the remixing of audio and video

Light-weight Static and Dynamic Screen Capture
