Captura is a .Net application to capture the screen along with audio from microphone and speaker output and clicks and keystrokes. Captura can run unobtrusively remaining minimized to the System Tray. Take ScreenShots and control recordings from the keyboard even when Captura is in System Tray using Configurable Hotkeys. Captura can be used from your terminal. Only for Portable builds. Captura can do the much demanded task of mixing Microphone input audio and Speaker output audio. Captura can capture specific regions using the Region Selector.

I'm blown away by Captura. Have been looking for quite a time for a good and free (or at least adware-free) software, with no success.

Then I came across Captura. It's a beautiful, functional and totally intuitive piece of software. It took me 5 minutes until I was totally in love with it.
