Mac Screen Capture in a “Snap”


Cinematic Studios is currently in the process of producing a series of video podcasts for Adobe and RangerFinder’s AfterCapture.com website centered on Adobe’s “Creative License” campaign. We interviewed a number of photographers for the series and I’m currently working the the Parker J interview. I needed some screen shots of Photoshop in action and I found an awesome tool for the Mac. It’s called Snapz Pro X by Amrosia software. They have a version that does screen capture only, and they have a version that can also capture QuickTime movies. The former is only $29 and the latter $69 (you get a 30 day free trial). This program is sweeeeeet! If you need to do any kind of screen capture (for brochures, training DVDs, etc.) and you’re working on a Mac, I can’t recommend this program enough.
