Re: [idvusers] Capture issues

Hi Bob

Not sure with what you are capturing, View>Capture>Image or View>Capture>Movie? Independently of that however, you may explicitily specify the format by appending .png (also my prefered format) to the file name. I am running 2.4 and nighlty builds of 2.5 under XP without problems. Must be some problem with the graphics configuration on your machine (or with RAM use).

Is there another way to export the images other than a screen capture.
I would prefer to use png, the other formats are too lossy or too big.
It`s got to the point where it is easier to hit "print screen" and
crop the screen grab in photoshop. Not the ideal way! Thank you.
