All new WM Capture 8. This is a paid upgrade with many new features. Current WM Capture owners can upgrade at a special price.
Game recording: This update adds features that makes recording games in top quality easier than ever using hot keys and borderless window recording (see below).
Hot keys: These handy shortcuts are now enabled at all times. Use Alt+A to start/stop recording, Alt+S to pause/restart, Alt+D to mute/unmute the microphone.
Borderless window recording: This useful when recording games that do not provide a borderless window. Just the game contents are recorded without annoying borders or caption bars.
Super high frame rates: Capture all the action detail with frame rates as high as 100 fps.
Smaller webinar recordings: Our new Windows Media Screen codec makes smaller recordings, with bit rates as low as 2 MB per minute.
Improved webinar audio: The new Dual Audio recording feature avoids disturbing echo feedback between speakers and the microphone. A mute/unmute hot key and button are included.
New User Interface. And choose between smaller or larger UI.
Added Windows Media Screen codec for recording low motion screens like webinars and documents.
Dual audio can now be used with any format.
Background mode improved. Can now be enabled/disabled from the main window. No longer requires a restart.
Check recording (perform multiple recording test for settings up frame rates, bitrate, window size, etc without recording multiple files).
