Snapz Pro X (http://www.ambrosiasw.com/utilities/snapzprox/) versus iShowU HD (http://store.shinywhitebox.com/ishowuhd/main.html): which do you prefer? I used a PPC version of Snapz Pro in the past and was happy with it, but am now looking for a good video capture app for my MacBook Pro. I'd like it to be able to record up to full-screen losslessly with high CPU efficiency. I value quality, simplicity, and an elegant user interface over a high feature count. Which one should I buy?

Thanks!

I've only ever used SnapzPro, and loved it, so not sure how useful my feedback will be, but it works great on a Macbook Pro to capture full screen or partial screen video. Not the best interface in the world, but if you've used it before you know how it goes.

For quality and performance, Snapz Pro X is the winner, even though its interface is showing its age.

You should give ScreenFlow a look. It can capture at up to 30 FPS unlike Snapz Pro which, in my experience, is somewhere around 22-24. It is very pricey though, and I'm not sure it's actually worth all $99.

Hmm, I've never had a problem maintaining 30fps with SnapzPro on my MacBook.

Which version were you using, and which hardware?

Thanks all. Barring any strong opposite opinions, I think I'll purchase Snapz Pro X tomorrow.
