I would like to be able te record a video with Snagit in a timelapse. Instead of recording everything and using another program to create a timelapse of it. The file created would also be a lot smaller.

This has been request going back 6 years, as a quick search shows. I would like it, too, but am not holding my breath.

How would this differ from perhaps choosing to record at a very low frame rate, then speeding it up in the editor?

Smaller filesize. I think, if I would want to record my work for a day or so, it will be a much to large file to handle.

If you want to record a day or so, presumably it's so you can go back and review what you did and maybe pick out some key moments.  If so then time lapse may have missed the moment you need, whereas recording at a lower frame rate and picture quality will reduce the file size and still capture all the moments.

As an aside FlashBack Pro (the paid version of FlashBack Express) allows you to record continuously (at whatever frame rate and quality you want) AND break the record into separate files based an a user definable file size.  So if you really want to record at the highest quality, you could.

It's not that much of an issue.

My initial thought was to record a days work when I'm modeling a technical installation in Revit in a time-laps fashion and see what the result is.
