Program to capture screen shots?

I had high hopes of HyperSnap doing this, but no luck there.

I have in mind taking screen shots, say every 30 seconds, that could be viewed as a video. Then webcam sites such as click here could be left running. I could then return and play back the scenes.

Its mostly used for gaming, also if you get the trial version you can only capture for 30seconds max with no sound.

I honestly dont think Fraps will suite your needs as it only captures 3d games and not your desktop or anything else like it.

I have been using this for years now and find it very useful. Primarily developed for Flight Sim it can be used for whatever you want. What I like about it is you can have different "target" folders depending on just what you are capturing.
Give it a try:

and it's free!

Run the program abd the settings you need are under Options>Capture/Screenshot.

Hi "snag it" works well at this, and you can also change type of capture ie: AVI to JPEG...Dave.

i cant get my irfanview to do what you suggest?
(not a hijack by the way)

I may be asking for too much. Ideally, a utility that would take a screen shot automatically, at a preset interval, and save them to a folder.

Then, perhaps, another function could convert the jpgs into a movie.

Any budding programmers out there?
