Is there a way to capture the submenus that are showing up on the screen as you are recording with the Screen Capture included in SolidWorks? It seems to be very limited as to what screen capture actually records.
Did you find an answer to this?
Or did you find an alternative 3rd party software you can recommend?
I need to record a demonstration on how to use a feature.
This will work.
Use Snagit or Camtasia instead. Both are from TechSmith.
Have you tried using RX tool? There is option to capture video and records full screen.
ShareX - Screen capture, file sharing and productivity tool
Open Broadcaster Software is free and open source. Used for Streaming and Recording.
Use the free tool Greenshot. https://getgreenshot.org/
The Rx tool is very choppy. Low frame rates.
J. Mather I like the features list. But it doesn't have a solidworks add-in.
Did you try Shift Print Screen button on your keyboard?? then you can copy/paste into paint, adjust and save..
Tom Helsley, a little pricy don't you think?
John Stoltzfus, I'm looking for video capture. That's what I thought Barry Morris was looking for too when he said, "recording with the Screen Capture".

Still works, the other keystrokes stuff is just noise in my opinion.

Thanks everyone for your input on this. I will look at the options that ya'll have suggested and pick one of them that works for what I need to do. It's nice to know there's people out there that can help. Thanks guys!

Just compared to free? Yes. I've been using Snagit for years now, and for me it's been a really good value.
Lots of programs can do screen captures, and that part probably doesn't make much of a difference other than how quickly and easily they do it and what options you have for capturing. The difference becomes more obvious after that. For example, Snagit automatically stores the images (a huge time-saver) and it has excellent tools for editing and adding annotations. I honestly don't know how Snagit and Camtasia compare to other programs out there. Some of them look very promising. You have to watch the introductory videos on YouTube and try each out to see what makes the most sense for you.

Yea Barry, let us know which one works out for you. I'm on the hunt as well and trying to crawl through the options that were mentioned. Where you looking for still image capture or video capture?

In fact, windows 10 comes to the rescue on screen captures. Windows Key + Shift + S will give you a clipping tool. Then clicking the preview created brings you to an edit window in "Snip & Sketch". And Windows Key +V shows a clipboard history where you can select the active clip board item. These are both windows 10 additional features.
In windows 10, Windows+Shift+S. This will freeze the screen and bring up "snip and sketch". I use it in all programs, not just Solidworks.
If I understood your issue correctly. That means you want to take a screen shot which include drop down menu as well, but drop down menu disappears once you start to take a screen shot.
I use Snagit for scree shot and video. This is the way I do. If any screenshot includes drop down menu, first I take video including drop down menu (because drop down menu will not disappear in video) after that I take screen shot of that particular event form that video.
I use APowerRec to capture videos of what I am doing. It's free and rather simple.
They're completely rubbish compared to Snagit.
If my boss told me we were making cutbacks and that I had to chose between snagit and swx, I'd take snagit and use freecad.
