Editors' Review

+
Although we have a few minor complaints, this utility offers a handy method for capturing screenshots of various PC activities. The interface is divided into two easy-to-use portions. A floating toolbar features clearly labeled icons for recording an entire Web page, certain frames, or video. Once you've acquired the appropriate shot, you can head to the main interface to view, print, edit, resize, e-mail, or save the file as a sticky note. CaptureWizPro automatically scrolls to take screenshots of lengthy pages. It also offers many options for customizing the way the program works, letting you completely reconfigure its taskbar. Although the application lets you set hot keys for capture operations, we would like to see the ability to assign specific hot keys to different capture operations. We were impressed by the quality of the video-capture functionality, which will let you create basic computer-training movies. However, we wish the area-capture tool could snap to program windows. The program didn't really slow our computer's performance, but the main window does open somewhat slowly when many snapshots have been saved. Though many types of users could benefit from CaptureWizPro, we think graphic designers and computer instructors could put it to especially good use.

"EXCELLENT program - it's a MUST HAVE!"

May 21, 2009  |  By dragonlady13

 |  Version: CaptureWizPro 4.0

Pros

This does a fabulous job of capturing data, and the "screenshots" are very easy to insert into documents, emails, etc.

Cons

Haven't found any cons yet!

Summary

I like that it remains active, yet unobtrusive with the floating window. Help is easy to access and understand if you require more explanation on it's features. This is an excellent program for communicating exactly what you are seeing on your screen. If you can't explain your error message to your company's helpdesk staff, send them a shot of message itself. If you need to create training documents or "how-to" guides, this is wonderful at being able to copy and insert exactly what you want, without using a whole screen capture. I really like how you can easily outline what you want copied, instead of using a screen capture, and then editing out all the stuff you don't want to send. This program has increased my personal and professional productivity, and the quality of the documents that I am creating and sending out. I can't say enough about this - once you try it, you'll find it hard to live without!

"Fabulous Program!"

May 07, 2009  |  By junkadoo

 |  Version: CaptureWizPro 4.0

Pros

It is so easy to use. There is no learning curve at all with this program. The two page shortcut sheet you download is easy to understand. I really love that you can grab screen captures of items that "float" on your page temporarily.

Cons

I wish you could save captures at a little higher resolution. I print a lot of things and don't like to have bitmapping.

"Useful and effective screen capture program"

May 04, 2009

 |  Version: CaptureWizPro 4.0

Pros

It effectively does the job it was designed to do and has some innovative additional features like sticky notes and the tiny yellow bar under the quicklaunch . I was looking for something that captures a webinar. It does this with good resolution.

Cons

Nothing really. Nice program. I looked for something negative to say, but found nothing. Maybe a conversion feature to convert to MPG format would be nice, though for me that is irrelevant because of its large size

Summary

Allows area, full screen, scrolling windows, video and audio capturing. It also enables the creation and management of sticky notes in a very innovative way.

I needed a screen / video capture program for an important webinar I was attending so I evaluated several screen capture program for the job and indeed purchased one of the competitors to do the job. In testing though I found that CaptureWizPro came out best.

It stores captured videos in a native format which can be easily played back and are as clear and sharp as the original. It also converts the videos into the standard windows WMV format. These are not as sharp, but this is a function of the format and indeed none of the programs I tested had the sharpness of the original

All in all the program is excellent and recommended. I tested it on both XP and Vista (32bit)

"Works Great!"

April 26, 2009  |  By trappilk

 |  Version: CaptureWizPro 4.0

Pros

Easy to use. Captures are perfect.

Cons

Low framerate, but there are ways to work around that.

Summary

I used it to make movies. It was very easy. I had the 30 day free version, and felt it was worth the price for the full version. It was exactly what I was looking for.

"A simple yet incredibly versatile product"

April 22, 2009  |  By tradermeister

 |  Version: CaptureWizPro 4.0

Pros

It's extremely simple to use yet very versatile. It allows you to visually capture all or part of almost any image \ text and keep it as a note. Additionally you can record audio and visual items.

Cons

I really can't think of any. But if you think of a change that you may find useful the feedback given to the author usually finds its way into the next release.

Summary

I tend to think visually and therefore I use this as an extension of my written \ typed notes. Capturing an image is far more efficient and accurate than taking notes manually in my opinion, plus I can incorporate that image into other products that I use such as Microsoft Notes and Mind Manager, not to mention email. This is one of the few products that I would really hate to be without.

"Very nice upgrade!"

April 22, 2009  |  By mfjfarrell

 |  Version: CaptureWizPro 4.0

Pros

As usual, CaptureWiz does and excellent job of screen captures. For some, it might be convenient to have choices for saving the files in various formats but I prefer the previous version where I can change it later rather than during a session.

Cons

can't think of anything against it other than previously mentioned!

Summary

good upgrade but I still prefer the previous version!

"Pretty decent, considering."

April 15, 2009  |  By lyrkerabove

 |  Version: CaptureWizPro 4.0

Pros

Easy-to-use user interface. Intuitive. Lots of options. Great quality playback.

Cons

I don't like the fact that it stamps your video with "Recorded with free.." etc. The free version is already set to a 30-day trial and will expire without paying. No need to cripple it further.

Summary

It seems to work fine for the purposes I used it for. Really don't like the company stamp on the output though. It's a deal-breaker since I've no guarantee they won't stamp the paid-for output as well. I don't want someone else's logo on the video so I won't be buying this software.
