Snapz Pro X for Mac is a capture utility for Mac OS X. It is available from several download sites, but with a purchase price of $69 if you want to upgrade after using the free trial. Snapz Pro X for Mac installs cleanly and quickly.

More than a simple screenshot utility, Snapz Pro X for Mac lets you capture anything that appears on your screen either a still images or as a movie in QuickTime format. Snapz Pro X for Mac can capture full-screen or a smaller portion, and provides a simple way to make product demos, tutorial videos, and other movie-based narratives. Preference dialogs let you set the frame rate you want, as well as whether audio is captured with video, and special abilities such as following the cursor or panning smoothly to new locations. Using a default codec of H.264, the video produced by Snapz Pro X for Mac is about as good as anything we've seen from much more expensive packages on the Mac. There's a live preview window option that lets you see what is being recorded.

We used Snapz Pro X for Mac for a week and really got to like its capabilities. While not an inexpensive app it does have features that we've spent a lot more for in larger video production software packages. While you won't want to spend $69 for a simple static screen capture utility, Snapz Pro X for Mac actually looks like a bargain when you add in all the capabilities it offers.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Snapz Pro X for Mac 2.5.1.
