    Screen Grabbing

    Sorry if this shouldn't go here, but I haven't been able to find the answer anywhere else. So how do you go about taking screen caps with realplayer? I'll know what to do once I get the screen caps, and am looking forward to posting at FORT.

    I use a small (and free) program from here, all I have to do is hit the print screen button and it saves the shot to whatever folder you specify. The link is in the lower right corner, PrintScreen 2.6, I believe.
    It was me. I let the dogs out.

    The key is that you need to go into Real Player and turn off using an optimized video display. With optimized video display on, the image is drawn on the screen in a way that you can't capture it with a screen cap program.

    In Real 10, go to menu option tools, and then Preferences.
    Choose Hardware in the category list. On the bottom option called Video Card Compatability choose Most Reliable (disable optimized video and overlays)

    Then you can screen cap away.

    Personally I use SnagIt for screen caps. But it is a pay program. Well worth the cost. I use the Camstasia program from the same company at the office for creating training videos and documenting software issues for vendors.

    Your screencaps always look great, TCW. Mine come out looking very video-y, but I'm just plugging away with IRfan.

    I have Snag-it myself. Highly recommended.
