This is killing me.  In Snagit 2018 I want to record screen captures at the lowest possible frame rate, since the screen will not update a lot.  I basically want a slideshow with narration, just so I can capture my thoughts about something quickly and easily.

I cannot find any way to do this.  There are no video capture settings anywhere... or am I blind??  I really hope they're here somewhere and I'm just somehow managing to miss them.  Appreciate any pointers anyone can give.  So far all I can find is that the Windows version can do this.

To make matters worse, it seems that even the file export option of Snagit doesn't allow for any alterations at all.  I can't adjust frame rate, image size, compression settings, nothing.  This seems impossible that a tool like this could be lacking such basic functionality.  Can someone please point me in the right direction here?

OK nevermind... according to chat support, Snagit can't do these things!  I'm horrified... such basic, fundamental, and simple things that any decent screen recorder should have.  Screenflow can do it, so obviously it's possible... I just don't want a light application for simple fast screen recordings, no editing, no effects, just capturing my thoughts on screen.  Oh well.
