"Good for general purpose capture."
Version: AMCap 9.21 build 156.3
Will capture most connected video devices.
Would have gotten 5 stars if it could do time lapse still captures and capture more than one device at a time.
"Tight, efficient, Windows-friendly utility"
Version: AMCap 9.21 build 156.3
- interface closely adheres to IBM/Microsoft Windows conventions so that it is extremely intuitive for Windows users
- windows can be sized and dragged exactly as expected
- quick setup, quick program start, quick video acquisition
- can run multiple program instances to monitor multiple video streams
- videos can easily be run "full screen" with no Windows borders
IMO, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this software although I recognize that many people are dissatisfied because they assume that it is something more than it is. It might be regarded as more of a "utility" than a full-featured program.
I have only run AMCap on Windows 7, where it has performed flawlessly. I have had great difficulties with more elaborate programs. I considered just using the software from my hardware manufacturer, a leading vendor of webcams, mice, keyboards and such. I was amazed that their software allows only a smallish window in which to view their 1080p webcam image! And with the vendor software, there is no way to view the output of more than one webcam at a time. AMCap beautifully overcame both these limitations. But it is not the solution for advanced features such as launching an unattended recording session based on movement within the image. Yes, I feel that the rock-solid basic features of AMCap should be standard from the hardware vendor and the base upon which more sophisticated programs are built. Unfortunately, AMCap is the only package I have found that even does these basic things really well.
