screen capturing?

    Thanks  AFRLme. Script works... Still no one from my mac testers could not create screenshot. It is set to F12 and they use PC keyboard with all functions same as on PC. Maybe there is an issue of visionaire reading PC keyboard function on mac? Well anyway, it is not huge issue but would be nice to have some clue of what is going on here smile

    Try one of the regular keys like C or something. Also make sure F12 & whichever other key you use is a key released event. I don't have my mac mini handy for testing, so unfortunately I can't check myself. It's currently being used as a media box in the main lounge.

    P.S: you can actually check which OS is running with a simple if query, so you could wrap the key events in conditions so that F12 works on PC & C (or whichever key) only works on the mac.

    if getProperty("platform") == "win" then
     Values["os"].Int = 1
    elseif getProperty("platform") == "mac" then
     Values["os"].Int = 2
    end
    1
    2
    3
    4
    5


    Just add the script into the launch actions inside of an execute a script. Don't forget to create a value somewhere & name it "os". & here's an example of the action part usage...

    if value "os" is 1
     execute/call screenshot script...
    end if


    Should be enough to go on I think?

    As for mac, I think it's recommended to use an actual mac keyboard. I know I had a few issues when I tried using a windows keyboard as the mac layout/input is different.

    I once used Camtasia on my friend's computer. It works like a charm but is just too expensive. I have Joyoshare Screen Recorder now which helps me capture screen in the way I like.

    Nice necro. You don't really need third party software for screen recording these days as any pc/laptop from the past few years or so with an amd or nvidia gpu will likely come with screen recording & evening streaming features with the software that comes with the gpu. I have no idea whether or not integrated graphics that come with intel cpu has those capabilities mind.
