Screen Capture

Question

I just upgraded to Roxio Creator NXT to NXT3 specifically to do Screen Capture. But the ONLY format Screen Capture on NXT3 allows is wmv. I want to use avi format because the quality is much better. I can always convert it to something of lower quality (and size) later. Does anyone know if there is a work-around solution for this? And does anyone know if NXT3 Pro allows the format to be set to avi? This is a real disappointment because free software on the web records to avi; so I'm shocked that Roxio NXT3 does not.

I've just been capturing my whole screen at 1920 x 1080 @ 30 fps. The quality of the WMV that was saved doesn't seem too bad, although I'd prefer one of the more versatile formats.

 

 

However I can't find any way to change the capture format.

Nor can I find any Help system for 'Record Your Screen' [VSSCAP.exe], nor can I find anything in the Learning Center.

The program doesn't seem to work at all under Windows XP. [please let me know if you can somehow make it work there]

 

Perhaps the inclusion of this in the NXT 3 suite was a last-minute afterthought?

I thank you for your help.

I do not understand why ROXIO does not provide a comprehensive specification for this new SCREEN CAPTURE. The ROXIO designers have all the answers to our questions.

I beg them to provide officialy the spoecification pf this SCREEN CAPTURE. But I amnot sure they will listen to me!!!!!!!

They won't listen to you here because apart from one overworked serviceman they never come here.

However there is the Feedback option under the Help button at the top of your main menu screen.

Click that 'Provide Feedback' item and send it to Roxio.

 

Note that it's not the place to ask for help, but it's certainly the place to point out shortfalls in the software. Tell them about it.

 

Regards,

Brendon

I'm not at my computer where I have NXT 3. Since it is really a Corel application, perhaps this tutorialmight help (maybe a tip or two). The one in NXT 3 may be a cut down OEM of the program in the Corel product.

 

EDIT: I just got to my other computer and confirmed that only wmv is available. It captured at the maximum resolution of my desktop (1080 by 900). There are very few other controls.available so it seems like the program is a cut down version of an OEM.

As much as I liked XP it is a 15 year old OS and most support ended 6 years ago and ALL support was dropped a year ago...

 

You can't live in the past forever ;)

If a product is advertized to work under Windows XP, it should work under Windows XP, regardless of your opinion of Windows XP.

Hi Brendon and Savoyard. Thanks for the feedback. It's helpful. This is the third time I paid $ for Roxio software and in the past I've been very happy with the software. But this Screen Capture feature is really annoying. As Brendon observed there's no information anywhere on it; it probably was a last minute addition. I left a message at the "Feedback" site. Maybe I'll get a response. I tried to call but there's no way to talk to anyone even though I just bought this software one week ago. I'm surprised by how Roxio treats it's customers.
