Hi Mouser,

Thank you for considering adding these options.

A simple uncompressed format allows me access to the actual RGB screen data, for further processing.

Capturing at a fast rate is useful for screens with windows showing video or animation. I tried this option with hardware acceleration turned off (as you recommended), and it seems to be working fine.
I agree with f0dder that faster capture is best achieved with no compression at all.

Could anyone recommend a screencast software that stores the captured video as successive individual files instead of or in addition to AVI or flash?

Thank you for making SC. It's vast but the good UI and help make it easy to find your way around.

There are 2 feature enhancements I'm interested in:
1. The option of saving images in an uncompressed format, BMP and PPM.
2. Auto-capture faster than once per second. Though, I'm not sure how fast is feasible...  :-\

General Review Discussion / Re: Free PDF tools review?

I use 4 PDF related programs, in concert:

1. GhostScript engine (free)

I have both the GPL and AFPL versions (you'll see why in a second). They usually get updated soon one after the other, but sometimes not.

2. CutePDF Writer (free)

This is a printer driver (like many others) to print from any program into a PDF doc. It needs a PS2PDF converter, such as GhostScript.

3. PDFill (free and paid)

PDFill has two parts, one free and one that costs $20, both rely on the free AFPL GhostScript engine (and it must be the AFPL version, not the GPL). PDFill detects whether an AFPL version is already installed, or else offers to download and install it for you, albeit an older version than what you can download and install yourself. So, I would install the newer version of AFPL GhostScript first, and PDFill afterward.

The free part is a GUI with 12 tools that merge, split, reorder pages, add watermarks, encrypt, convert to and from image files, and add header/footer info.

The paid part is a PDF editor ($20) that can be used to fill out and *save* PDF forms (what other readers won't let you do), add text and graphics annotations, and create your own PDF forms. It also allows you to add editable fields on top of a not editable PDF doc, so that you can fill in fields on a non-interactive form (instead of printing, filling it by hand, scanning and then sending it out).

4. PDF Image Extraction Wizard (free)

This tool can extract all the images in a PDF doc.

Hope this helps...
