Just wanted to say thanks for posting this! I had no idea this was out there.

Oh thanks, I'll look forward to the Linux release since video capture on Linux is rather fiddly. I found that command line ffmpeg with the x11grab option did the best job, but it was/is difficult to get all the options working right.

Thank goodness streaming/capture on the PS4 is integrated into the thing.


Thanks for the tip, I had not heard of this software before. Can't wait for the Linux version!

I will say that on a Mac you really do not need any additional software to make a motion screen capture - just use QuickTime - launch QuickTime Player, then select under the File menu "New Screen Recording" Click the red record button that pops up. Then you can drag a bounding box, and resize it as desired, or capture the entire screen. To stop recording, look to the top menu bar, right side for the "stop recording" button. You can select microphone input as well.

My recommendation for recording is MSI Afterburner. It records with minimal FPS slowdown and produces no watermark, and it's free and frequently updated. Despite the name you don't need MSI to use it.


Can you recommend software to record Second Life video? Enjoy your posts. Thanks


Thought OBS was just for streaming video recording. If select game rerecording in drop down box it works for SL. I don't think of SL as a game, so that threw me off little. Thanks for recommendation in your post.

Ive added a water mark once because it was artistically relevant

and Paul i use Fraps to record second life
red giant looks to make it look cool
video copilot for lense flare
after effects to stabilize and remove the lag
premiere to edit video
and use an xbox 360 controller for smooth pans
