"LICEcap is a tool that makes simple animated screen captures."
LICEcap enables users to capture desktop activity & save it as an animated GIF. This software's name comes from "Lightweight Image Composition Engine" - and it is very simple to use. Users just need to position a hollow frame on the screen, capture and resize the window, and finally record the capture.
The capture can be saved directly as a .GIF or .LCF file. It is possible to pause recording the animation, insert some text, record mouse button presses, and display elapsed time in the recording.
When it comes to deployment, this is installed software for Windows and MacOS operating systems. It is easy to launch and use, without redundant menus and complicated settings: only a window to resize and drag to whatever area need to be captured.
Record directly to .GIF or .LCF.
Move the screen capture frame while recording.
Pause and restart recording, with optional inserted text messages.
Global hotkey (shift+space) to toggle pausing while recording.
Adjustable maximum recording framerate, to allow throttling CPU usage.
Basic title frame, with or without text.
Record mouse button presses.
Display elapsed time in the recording.
