Ambrosia Software announced on Thursday that its screen recording software, Snapz Pro, has been updated to version 2.1. The new version is a Universal Application and is compatible with the WWDC Leopard Release.
Other improvements include: greatly improved capture performance, support for QuickTime compression sessions -- enabling H.264 multipass encoding, and the (restored) ability to "save later" when post-processing movie captures.
Snapz Pro allows the user to record anything on the screen and save it as either q QuickTime movie or a screenshot.
"Snapz Pro X is a quantum leap in video capture technology, adroitly capturing full motion video of anything on your screen at a blistering pace, complete with digital audio, and an optional microphone voiceover. Think of it as a digital video camera for your screen. Snapz Pro X makes short work of making training videos, producing product demos, creating tutorials, archiving streaming video, and anything else you can think of," according to Ambrosia Software.
Snapz Pro X can save screenshots as .bmp, .pict, .gif, .jpg, .png, .tiff, .pdf, or Photoshop files with precise control over image compression.
Snapz Pro 2.1 requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later and is a Universal Application. It is priced at US$29.00 for the image only capture version and US$69.00 for the image plus movie capture version.
