Where are the video setup and frame rate settings in Snagit 11?

Perhaps I am missing something.

When I purchased Snagit 11, I thought I was getting an upgraded version of Snagit 10.

Instead, I got a neutered version with fewer options, less flexibility, and less usability.

Where are the Video Setup / Frame Rate options? I have gone through tutorials here at TechSmith and searched on the web and in the forums.... I cannot seem to find a way to modify these settings.

I am extremely disappointed in Snagit 11. I quite honestly feel like someone has stolen $50 from me.

Seriously, am I missing something? I just want the ability to select a codec and its settings and set the frame rate.

Without these items, I can no longer use nor recommend Snagit as a low-cost high quality solution for video screen capture. It simply does not fit that description any longer.

Hi all- I’m excited to let you know that you can now have the option to choose from Low, Medium, or High video capture settings in the new Snagit 13. The default is Medium, which targets 15 fps. When you set this preference to High, Snagit will target 30 fps.

Of course, since Snagit generates a ready-to-share MP4 video in real-time (quite a resource-intensive activity!) the actual framerate of your video will vary. Key factors that impact framerate include: your computer hardware, how much system resource is consumed by your other apps and services, capture dimensions, and amount of motion in your content.

Other video-related updates in Snagit 13 include support for webcam video capture, full-screen capture on displays larger than 1080p, and animated GIF creation from videos. Do let us know what other video features you’d like to see in Snagit.

  • Try out the new version of Snagit for 15 days – download it here.
  • If you own a license to any earlier version of Snagit on Windows or Mac, you can upgrade to the latest and greatest for only $24.95 USD – see upgrade details here.
