    Hello all,

    I am looking for a good quality/fast free screen capture video recorder software for my iMac that I can record things on my screen. I require a software that is resizable to your specific dimensions that you require recording of. For example, if you only wanted to capture and record a section in Pages, you would be able to click and drag how much area you wish to record.

    I have tried both "Capture Me" and "Copernicus", but I had issues with both. Copernicus seems to let me click and drag the surface area I wish (then nothing else besides a viewfinder preview window pops up), then when I hit record it might record a second or two and then shut off... or maybe that was on Capture Me, I cannot remember right now...

    Does anyone have a good video screen capture software? I really liked the Hypercam on Windows, but that had a water mark that needed to be paid to remove... :(

    Please help? Thank you...

    You can try Voila. Does basic screen recording if that is what you are looking for.
    It also comes with a free trial. So try it out before buying it. I use it all the time for my tutorials.

    If you have Snow Leopard, QuickTime X should be enough (File > New Screen Recording).

    It only does a full screen recording doesn't it? Or am I missing something?
