Request: "After every capture the main Screen Hunter Screen pops up ... which I simply close, but it’s annoying – especially when I’m doing several captures in a row ... how can I stop this happening ?"
On the Options tab, in the After Capture group, uncheck Show a brief message, Show the saved file names and Bring Image Editor to front, then minimize the main screen.
Actually no, it depends on the speed of your computer.
If you have a slow computer and you set up the video quality at 100%, and the frame rate at the maximum of 100, it may actually result in a slow, inconsistant video when you play it back.
3 things happen when you record your screen:
It captures your screen.
It processes the captured screen to data that is in a video format.
It saves the video data to a video file on your hard drive.
If any of these takes too long to process, you will see lagging in the final video play back. In some cases, the video may not play.
When deciding the quality, there are a few things to keep in mind:
How big is the area that I'm recording on-screen?
A full HD screen of 1920x1080 pixels will have 4x the amount of data than a 960x540 video.
How detailed does my video need to be?
A 1% increase in the quality may significantly increase the amount of data needed. For example, when your quality is over 90%,
although you might've increased the quality only by 1%, the video file size may have doubled.
What is my frame rate?
An increase in your frame rate will also result in an increased amount of data.
When recording a high quality video that spans your entire screen, the quality typically does not need to exceed 90%
and the frame rate shouldn't be more than 60.
Depending on how powerful your machine is, you can increase your quality
from there but always make sure to double check the end result to ensure it's exactly how you want it.
BMP Although, bitmap or BMP files are are large and uncompressed, it takes little time to convert and process.
It is the fastest for saving to the hard drive. When you need to capture a lot of big images, you can choose BMP to save and
convert them to other formats later.
