JingTechSmith is undoubtedly
known for their screencast and screenshot software, dubbed Camtasia
Studio and SnagIt. They’ve now started a free project called
Jing
that provides an alternative for making a screencast or
taking screenshots.

They don’t really provide screenshots on their site and
curiosity was getting the best of me. I downloaded the Windows
version (also available for Mac’s) and had it installed in about
30-seconds.

So how well does it work? It was surprisingly nice although it
lacks any advanced functionality. Here is a quick tour of what you
can expect after setting up the software:

–Starting Jing–

After I started Jing I was a little confused because there was
no window that popped up. After looking around the desktop I
noticed a small yellow orb protruding from the top of my monitor.
When I clicked on it there were three options that became visible:
capture, history, and preferences.

Jing

–Select the Region–

Choosing the “Capture” option brings up some yellow crosshairs
on the screen. You use these to select the region of the screen
that you want to either record, or take a screenshot of. After
selecting the area you will be asked what you want to do:

Jing

–Save as a Screenshot–

If you choose the “Image” option you can add certain things to
it, such as text or arrows:

–Record a Video (a.k.a. Screencast)–

If you go the route of recording a video it will instantly start
recording:

–Saving a Video or Uploading it–

Obviously the point of making a screencast is to share it with
someone else. So TechSmith lets you upload the screencast to
Screencast.com
which costs some money
to do
a commenter below says is free. Alternatively you
can save the screencast as a SWF file, but sites like YouTube,
Google Video, and DivShare don’t support that filetype in their
video players. You would have to use something like ZippyVideos to
host the SWF video or Media Convert to save it as another format.

Jing

–Overview–

I really think that this project can turn into something big,
but I have a feeling that they will be keeping the feature-set
quite limited to ensure that Jing doesn’t compete with their other
products. The thing that I would like to see the most is the
ability to save the screencast in another format, but that isn’t
going to happen because they want to limit users to what services
they can use.

For the casual user the software is quite nice, but power users
will notice it lacks options like framerate adjustments, file
format choices, and advanced editing capabilities.

《试用心得:用名门免费工具Jing Project来截图录屏(转载)》有3个想法

  1. 说起TechSmith Corporation,或Jing Project,你或许并不熟悉。但多数人会知道著名的截图工具 SnagIt。它就是出自TechSmith公司。除了SnagIt截屏外,还有一款甚至性能更高的Camtasia Studio 软件用来录屏。它们都是相应门类中,共享软件的杰出代表,并且为TechSmith公司带来了巨大的收益。
      但就在近期,TechSmith出台了一项免费产品,并且,专门制作了推广网站和blog。这就是Jing Project,它具有如下功能,可以应用在Windows(需.Net 3.0)和Mac平台。

    截图:把桌面上任何内容保存为图片。
      录屏:录下你做的事,或你见到的一切。
      分享:即时上传,通过Email/blog/IM分享。

      不知此款产品的出现,是否意味着TechSmith公司也要向Web时代转型——尤其是考虑到Jing的在线分享功能。
