Hello guys,

I don't know if this is the right forum but I ask it anyway.

I am working on some productmovies and need to capture some screens. To get this done I am looking for portable screencapture software. Preferable free.

Does someone has some experience with this? Any help would be great ☺

Cheers!

You already have it, if you use a mac.

Sadly our equipment isn't running on mac but on Windows Embedded. That's also the main reason I am looking for portable software :)

Depending on whats locked out of your embedded Windows, Windows itself has the 'Snipping Tool' for screen captures. Just hit the Windows logo key, and type Sn and it should show.

Following text irrelevant: Other than that, I may have one freeware but it is in the office computer, and being public holidays this whole week, won't access it till late in the week. Can't recall the name, and not sure if it will work from a USB/without installation. Shall revert later.

Just remembered what the above-mentioned software is: MWSnap . Download the .zip version to a USB drive, unzip, and open from there. No installation required.

Alternatively, try 'PrtSc' key (Print Screen), then open up Paint in Windows, and Ctrl+V to paste the screen capture, then save as you wish.

While it's not free, Camtasia is pretty much the best screen capture tool for the PC side. You don't say whether your captures need to show an interface in motion, with moving cursors, etc.; Camtasia does that and a whole lot more:

Thank you for your replies.

@Thomas I need to grab videos, not stills.

@Joseph Camtasia sure is a great application. Although I only need to grab video and it might as well be image sequences or uncompressed avi. It just needs to be portable :)

I'm not at the right computer at the moment, but I'm almost certain Open Broadcaster Software https://obsproject.com/ is what I used on a recent project. It took a few minutes to get it set up and a few test recordings, but I was really happy with it.

Hi Stephan,

I have tried OBS and it works. But sadly it doesnt work on Windows Embedded. So for now, I try something else.

Regards,

Marten
