Video games are the ultimate source of entertainment for anyone who spends several hours a day on a computer. If you want to share some special element that is part of your favorite game-menu design, the composition of the characters, the resolution of a specific level, etc. – It’s best to opt for screenshots (both picture and video) .
The problem is that conventional programs to capture screen video games do not work in full screen. But that does not mean it’s impossible to get screenshots and screencasts. There are dedicated applications to run games and one of the best is PlayClaw . In this article we will tell you some of its most important features.
PlayClaw is a very simple program that works like any other software to capture the screen, but was created to run on par with games . When installing a configuration screen displays easy to understand. In the case of the screenshots you must choose the trigger button, the output format of the images (PNG, JPG) and the color indicator that the capture was obtained.
An interesting point is that program screenshots may be obtained automatically after a specific interval seconds. Furthermore instantly saved in the specified folder in the configuration.
screencasts for configuration options are similar. You must choose a key to start the process, the number of frames per second, the recording frame size, the encoder and the output folder. PlayClaw can also record the sound emitted by the speakers play or comment in voice with the microphone.
run with a game appear superimposed layers of information with number of frames per second, time, temperature and percentage of CPU usage and GPU, among others. The arrangement and size of these elements can also be configured from the application window.
PlayClaw is a simple yet powerful tool and it works great. Please note that this is paid software, although there is a free trial version. The free edition allows for screenshots without problems, but places a watermark on the screencasts and other limitations that can only be removed by purchasing a license.
