Super Screen Capture6.0
Super Screen Capture is a tool that enables you to take snapshots and record audio and video, with just a few clicks.
Types of screen captures supported and saving results
The program's interface is standard and consists of a small window where you can access all the features. So, you can capture the full screen, a particular window, a geometrical shape, a polygon, or you can use Scroll Capture.
Once you have taken the snapshot, you can save it as an image file (as BMP, JPG, PNG, GIF), in a temporary folder, copy it to the Clipboard, mail or print it, open it in Paint, or use the built-in picture editing tools.
Start audio and video recording, and manage items
Furthermore, you can use a color picker to view and copy information of a particular color (RGB, Hex, Dec), record video in a window or full screen (as AVI), and record audio (as MP3; only captured from a microphone).
The software also comes with a Manager, in which you can easily organize and edit captured images (they can be accessed here even after you close and reinitialize Super Screen Capture).
Parameters you can tweak
The program's “Options” menu lets you reassign hotkeys for each capturing mode, configure the interface (e.g. rearrange the toolbar, change button size) and output settings (e.g. output default format, JPG file compression, auto scroll), as well as change video settings (e.g. FPS, audio and video compressor) and audio configurations (e.g. recording format, device, input, volume level).
A few hiccups
Unfortunately, we have encountered some problems with this application. For instance, Super Screen Capture froze a few times when we were recording video - once when we tried saving the video, and every time we tried to enable “Auto-close window.” So, we had to restart the program in all these cases.
Additionally, Scroll Capture automatically results in an upside down image. We don't know if this is supposed to happen, because we couldn't find any information about it in the Help file and we couldn't change any settings. Video recordings are not very smooth, and the Help file (which doesn't cover all features) was a challenge for us to find. It turns out that you can only access it from the Manager.
In conclusion, Super Screen Capture uses a low amount of system resources, yet it could certainly improve its interface and user guide. Otherwise, it does a pretty good job when it comes to capturing images and recording audio and video content.
