desktop capture
on May 23, 2006 at 6:49:37 am

Hello

I am looking for a way to capture the desktop activity on my

computer.
I need it for testing user usage of specific software that

also includes live video. So I need to see mouse movements and

what's on the screen at the same time. I want to see the video

played on the software I'm testing but it doesn't have to be

at full fps.
I was thinking of just capuring the desktop as a video. I

tried a few programs like Aviscreen, Turbodemo, ACA Capture

Pro, but they takes up a lot of cpu and memory, and I need the

capture not to interfere with the software I'm testing.
The capture programs are very simple.
Does anyone know if using a capture card, or a very strong

graphics card would help?

Thanks! Smile

I'm not looking for different software. I want to know how hardware can help.
