Setting up Time Lapse Recording
To record long periods with little change, you can use the Time-lapse feature.
With Time-lapse you can capture the desktop at a slower frame rate and play back
at a faster frame rate.
For example, you want to capture your screen for a long period of time. However,
you don't expect frequent changes to the state of the screen. Continuous recording
would capture a lot of unnecessary footage and the changes to the screen would be
too slow to notice when playing back later. With the Time-lapse feature in
place, you can capture frames after predefined time intervals (for instance, one
frame every minute) and play back the recordings at a faster rate, to give the impression
that the changes were faster than they really were. This will save time, it
will be easier to see the changes.
NOTE: Audio recording will not be carried out during Time-lapse recording.
To use the Time-lapse feature:
- On the Tools menu, click on Settings.
- Select the AVI Video tab.
- Select the Time-lapse option, and click on Time-lapse Setup.
- Specify the Recording rate in frames per second.
- Specify the Playback rate in frames per second.
- Click on Ok.
