Jing 2.1 (Windows) Video Transcript
[ music ] ^M00:00:03 Jing is an under-sung screen capture app that blurs the line between taking stills of a screen and recording it. I'm Jessica Dolcourt from CNET Download.com; this is Jing 2.1. Quite a few things differentiate Jing from other traditional screen-grabbing apps. First, you'll need a free screencast.com ID to register. Second, you'll need version 3 of Microsoft's .NET framework. After getting Jing installed, a small yellow ball called Jing Sun floats to the top of the screen. Hover over it every time you want to start a screen cast or capture. Of course, you can move it if you don't like its default location or even hide it and use a hotkey combination if you want to extinguish the Sun altogether. To begin a capture, just click the plus sign and click and drag the crosshairs to define your capture area. Press the control key to maintain a 4:3 aspect ratio or the shift key for a 16:9 widescreen ratio. After letting go, press the computer screen icon to take a still, or the film strip to start recording video. After taking a screen shot you'll have some basic annotation tools at your fingertips, but not really a whole lot more, since easy-sharing is what Jing is really about. For further editing, you can always send your capture to Snagit, the publisher's premium capture app. You can also upload the image to Screencast.com, you can save it on your computer, you can upload it to Flickr, or to your FTP site. You can add more quick-action buttons in the configuration menu. Taking a video works about the same, but with the added bonus of the mic. If you subscribe to Jing Pro for 15 dollars a month, you can also take video of your webcam and upload the finished video to YouTube. You'll be able to play back your video in Jing, but not edit it. You can, however, send it along to Camtasia Studio, the publisher's 300-dollar professional editing app, but you can try it for free for 30 days. You'll also be able to save the video locally or upload it to Screencast.com and more. Jing definitely isn't the most advanced screen capture app we've seen, but it is purposely simple to keep the emphasis on fast creation and easy sharing. Those looking for more advanced features may want to keep looking, but even those who only intend to share screen captures through email will find Jing a quick and convenient tool. I'm Jessica Dolcourt, and this has been Jing 2.1. ^M00:02:17 [ music ]
