    I don't use it, but you can check out their site for details.

    I don't do this very often, but I use QuickTime for full screen capture. One of my friends records tutorials for his clients and he uses Snapz Pro X.

    Snapz Pro allows you define a specific area of the screen to record which, of course, could be a window. It doesn't do much else for the $69 price tag. Screenflow which does not allow you to do so, has a lot more features for $99. I have used both. Camtasia for the Mac allows you to define an area, but weighs in at $149. I have not tried Camtasia.

    I'm interested in window capture too, not full screen. Any idea if it's on the roadmap for QuickTime?

    I looked at these programs a few months ago. IIRC, you can download trial versions of all the major ones and test them yourself to see what is best for your needs.
