While we're on the subject of PowerPoint presentations . . . does anyone
have recommendations for a screen capture software that allows you to
capture a *moving* screen shot (or more accurately, a series of shots) that
can then be inserted into PowerPoint? We want to capture the screen as
someone uses our data entry application to show how fast they can key data.
I know you can simply video the screen, but my boss doesn't want to video
it, he wants to actually do a moving screen capture. A video shoot,
apparently, is outside the budget. Anyone ever heard of this? Do you do
it? What tools do you use and what are their pluses/minuses? What other
recommendations do folks have for putting a moving image into a PP
presentation on a tight budget? I'm at a bit of loss on all this, so any
help would be appreciated.
