Does iMovie provide video screen capturing capabilities?

If not, any app/product suggestions?


Thanks.

iPhone 4, iOS 4

    If you have Snow Leopard, then QuickTime Player X has this feature.

    There are also many third party apps that do this, including Snapz Pro X for one.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply. I'm trying to capture video of my iPhone screen...Snow Leopard and QT will help me with this?


    Thanks,

    Nope.

    If you want to capture movies from your iPhone screen, you would need a Mac, an EyeTV Hybrid, and [one of these gizmos|http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB129LL/B?mco=MTY3ODQ5OTY]
    NOTE: This would not be smart, because any movie that you have on the iPhone is probably already in iTunes, or could be synced to iTunes.

    However, if you just want to do a slide show of iPhone screens, you can take screen shots of your iPhone using the iPhone, and then stitch them together using iMovie on the iPhone.

    To do a screen capture in iOS4, Quickly press and release the On/Off Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. A flash of the screen lets you know the screenshot was taken. The screenshot is added to the Camera Roll album.

    Hi,

    I've used the screen capture feature to create images of specific screens for demonstrations.

    I guess my wish list is to have the ability to create videos for my demonstrations instead of just screen shots. It sounds like we're not there yet.


    Thanks for your help,

    Let me just add that I believe there is an iOS4 simulator for developers that runs on the Mac and permits video screen capture (e.g. for demos of apps). Unfortunately, I am not a developer, so maybe one will see this and give more details.
