Make a movie out of 5 minutes screen activity ?

Hello,

I am looking for a software that would work sort of like the button "Print screen", but instead of taking one snapshot of my screen, it would record 5 minutes of the activity of my screen. That would help me in a project I have.

Thank you,

CM

Get wingrab from here http://home.no.net/wingrab/

It's highly customizable and will allow you to do things like automatically capture a screenshot per second.. you can then make a movie out of the screenshots if you want..

By the way weed's link is a macintosh utility (I assumed you're using windows)

Check out SnagIt. Don't remember the URL, but if you do a search for SnagIt you'll find it.

My 2 cents:
Camtasia: http://www.techsmith.com/products/studio/default2.asp is a fantastic screen capture program with a very simple interface.

The program can run in the background and allows you to specify which part of the screen (or all) that the user wishes to capture.

It will even allow you to capture audio (provided you have appropriate hardware).

Exporting options include:

-Macromedia FlashTM (SWF)
- AVI
- WMV
- MOV
- RM
- Animated GIF
- self-running EXE


Hope it helps you-
