Snapz on Yosemite

We are working on an update for Yosemite that contains other fixes and enhancements as well.

Regarding Snapz failing to work on Yosemite except for the first invocation, this happens if you double-click to save an image or movie.

If you hit the Return key instead, it'll work as expected. Yes, it's a silly bug, and we are fixing that as well. Hang tight folks!

Snapz Pro X 2.5.4 and Yosemite

My Snapz Pro X 2.5.4 is no longer working with Yosemite either. It would take screen shots for awhile, but I couldn't capture Mac audio even after I tried installing the Ambrosia Audio Support. Now the program appears right after I restart my computer but then disappears after one screen shot attempt. I really miss it.

The movie could not be recorded.

The problem looks like is the "Capture Mac audio" tab. It works when I record with it off.
How can I fix this?

Yosemite Incompatibility 2

Snapz Pro has not be updated in over a year. Apple has a new Operating System and Snapz Pro does not function properly with the new OS Yosemite. On my machine the audio does not record and there may be other anamolies for other users. We really need a Snapz Pro update, so that your software has compatibility with Apple's OS. Every developer knows that these OS upgrades are coming and you have a lot of time to prepare for the the release of a new OS. Please be responsible and release an update that is fully compatible with OS 10.10.

Yosemite Incompatibility

I'm trying to complete several projects using Snapz Pro and 2.5.4 is not compatible with Yosemite. Is there a work around now????

Not (fully) Yosemite compatible

I have the same problem after upgrading to Yosemite: Snapz Pro X works the first time and then stops working. To make it work again you have to shut down and restart the computer (in my case MacBook Pro Retina). Looking forward to a fix!

Snapz Pro works well the first time after rebooting then stops doing so (under Yosemite) is 2.5.4 totally compatible with Yosemite?

No Ambrosia Audio Support w Yosemite

Since I upgraded to Yosemite (Mac OS10.10) I have been unable to capture Mac Audio when making a movie. S/W will not install Ambrosia Audio Support. Hope a fix is on its way soon.

To make Snapz Pro X work properly with multiple monitors on Mavericks, go to System Preferences->Mission Control and uncheck the "Displays have separate Spaces" checkbox:

We're working on a longer-term solution to this, but this is a work-around.
