Rochester, NY -- June 13, 1999 -- Ambrosia Software, Inc. announced today the release of Snapz Pro 2, a powerful utility that grabs almost anything on your Mac's screen, and saves it as a QuickTime movie or a still image. This major upgrade to Ambrosia's popular screenshot utility integrates with QuickTime to support new file formats, and offers an innovative new selection tool, among numerous other enhancements.
Snapz Pro 2 is by far the most powerful, sensible, and economical screen capture solution for the Mac. Whether you're writing online manuals that require visual examples, or simply recording video of your flight simulator dogfighting skills, Snapz Pro is the ultimate utility for capturing moving or still pictures of your Mac.
Snapz Pro 2's rock-solid integration with QuickTime makes it ideal for recording movies that are optimized for the world wide web. You can make your training video, complete with your own narration, without worries about large file sizes or slow connections. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a fast-loading movie of your latest multimedia product in action is priceless. Snapz Pro 2 works with QuickTime to make all of your web demonstration dreams into low-bandwidth realities.
In addition to recording QuickTime movies, Snapz Pro 2 can also save pictures in PICT, GIF, and JPEG formats, as well as desktop publishing standby TIFF* format, and the increasingly important PNG*. No other Mac screen capture utility is as versatile.
Snapz Pro 2's versatility is matched by its ease of use: invoke the Snapz Palette with a single keystroke, and choose from 4 ingenious capture tools. By capturing only the parts of the screen you need, you won't have to waste any time editing your screenshots in post production. Simply click on a monitor, window, or menu and Snapz Pro 2 will automatically isolate, trim, and crop it. It also allows you to use a rectangular selection to grab whatever portion of the screen you wish, for maximum flexibility. Additionally, Snapz Pro 2 features advanced scaling and color palette features, so you can tailor your screenshots for a variety of media.
Thanks to superior engineering, Snapz Pro 2 is the most compatible screen capture solution available for Mac. It's the only screen capture solution that works with games that use Apple's InputSprocket. It is fully compatible with MacOS 8.6, as well as most popular applications. It even works with popular Windows emulators, making it a great QuickTime recording solution for Windows as well.
Snapz Pro 2 is still the reigning champion of screen capture programs for the Mac, and the addition of QuickTime movie capture affirms the technological lead. Luckily, its $40 price is more than competitive with other screen capture solutions. Users of Snapz Pro 1.x.x can upgrade for a fee of $20. Whether you're making pictures and movies to inform, or to entertain, Snapz Pro 2 is the ultimate image capture solution.
Snapz Pro 2 requires any Macintosh computer with MacOS 7.1 or later, with QuickTime 2.1 or later for movie capture (QuickTime 3.0 or later required for some features). A PowerPC and a large hard drive are recommended for QuickTime capture.
* QuickTime 4.0 or later is required for .tiff and .png file support.
