I've been using Kap since it was first posted here and this update is awesome!
Been using it for quite some time. Nice redesign!
Been using it for a while. Nicest I've found.
If you want more information, we're also on ProductHunt today
I think I tried Kap when it was first posted here, and I didn't work. Just tried this version and it's awesome!
Looks like there's no feature for dragging a custom shaped area for recording. Is that something you're planning to develop?
Hopefully this thread on GitHub will answer your question https://github.com/wulkano/kap/issues/370
Well what do you know. Thanks!
Great for small tutorials. But I miss an option to quick start a recording, a hotkey.
I use Teampaper Snap for screenshots all the time, and it is so easy. Especially because it uploads the shots and you can copy it to the clipboard.
This should answer your question @patrick-loonstra: https://github.com/wulkano/kap/issues/370#issuecomment-362508586
For copying the recording to your clipboard you can use the Clipboard plugin (https://github.com/kevva/kap-clipboard), just head to the app preferences and you'l find it in the plugins tab!
I saw it, and that works fine. Now I need shortcuts. Have you found that also somewhere?
Other than CMD + Shift + 5 and Enter/Esc to start and cancel, what other shortcuts would you want?
Nothing, this is perfect. Thanks.
What makes this better than Quicktime?
More file formats, and since it is open source, you can add features if you want to. Say, a watermark or something...probably.
Like the other reply from Elliott, you can export your recording to multiple formats (all at the same time of the same recording, too), there's plugins to share your recording with different media sites (like imgur or giphy, etc.). The quality is the same as QuickTime (the highest you can realistically achieve without going crazy with filesizes) but with much more options to what you can do with the result
