Updated:
- added Express Setup
- improved FPS Test Mode
- improved video quality
- improved audio feature
- improved notifications
- squashed a couple bugs

Express Setup / FPS Test Mode
If there are no XML files in the root folder (default) the user is prompted to continue with Express Setup.
Express Setup will test FPS performance and create the required XML files without opening XML Builder.
- test uses the entire desktop as a capture area to determine an optimal FPS

There are various methods to start the process in FPS Test Mode.
- use the shortcut key (capture entire desktop)
- drag the bullseye over any window or window area (capture window area)
- switch to rectangular snipping from Snipping Options (capture user-defined rectangular area)

NB*: The size of the area being captured can effect the results returned from FPS Test Mode; smaller area = higher FPS.

Multiple Monitors
Snipping should now support different DPI between monitors.

NB*: Snipping Options window :: [ CTRL + O ] or [ Context Menu > Snipping Options ] > Enable multiple monitor snipping.

Used my iPad (portrait mode) as a second monitor.

JHPJHP,

I want to have a look at your great tool. The screenrecordings are looking really promising.
But at first one question: Does your tool or the ffmpg addons write any data to a windows system directory or does it create registry entries?

Thanks in advance.

Kurzer

Hi kurzer,

The Video Snipping Tool does not write anything to disk (besides a few temp files) or registry; it uses ADS (Alternate Data Streams) to save setting data, and all image captures are done in memory.

I am fairly confident, but not 100% sure that FFmpeg does not write anything to disk or registry.

NB*: The FFmpeg folder can be deleted and the Video Snipping Tool would work just fine, but conversion between formats and adding an audio stream would not be available.

Updated:
- improved scaling
- improved enhanced cursor

Snipping Size Scaled ( % )
Previously scaling was either hard-coded or done at the capture level.
When the Output option is checked scaling is handled by FFmpeg, otherwise it's still done at the capture level.

Enhanced Cursor
Previously the cursor was behind the enhanced highlight.

NOTE:
When scaling is done through FFmpeg the original AVI size remains intact.
This can be useful if you want to output the same video to multiple formats and/or sizes.
After making the appropriate changes in XML Builder, use the drag & drop feature (main window) to output the new format/size.

Hello JHPJHP,

thanks for the info.
As I noticed in my test today, the tool needs an installed Xvid codec (I should have read your first post ;-) ). So I will try the tool later in a VM, where I will install the Xvid codec.

Hi kurzer,

Thank you for posting back.

Make sure to download the latest VST version, it has a couple important optimizations and bug fixes.

The XVID codec is not mandatory, the option can be changed from XML Builder.
1. PROMPT: Open a dialog window of installed codecs; may open behind other windows.
2. DEFAULT: Use the default Windows codec; no compression resulting in large video sizes.
3. FOURCC: Predefined code used to identify a compression format; must be installed.

Download the following XVID codec for fast encoding and small video sizes; works in both PureBasic x86/x64 (single install).
- no other options are required
- START > XVID > Encoder Config > Other Options... > Display encoding status (remove checkbox)
