Screeny makes screen capturing easy and gives you the freedom to capture your videos or images at any size. You can click & drag to resize the capture area or input the exact pixel dimensions to set to the size of the capture area. All the while you will get instant feedback on the capture area's current pixel dimensions.

Screen casting just got a billion times better with Screeny. Now you can capture a specific portion of your screen, rather than having to record your entire desktop. This can drastically reduce video file size and bring focus to a specific portion of your screen. You can even include a video feed from your web-cam inside of your screen cast!

NOTE: Screeny ONLY works in OS X Lion (10.7) and higher.

- Images are stored in your 'Pictures' folder, in a folder named 'Screeny'.
- Videos are stored in your 'Movies' folder, in a folder named 'Screeny'.

• Record Video & Snap Images of your screen at any size, and with your built-in or external web-cam!
- Capture any portion of your screen by dragging, expanding and moving the capture canvas to any size.

60fps - Well this app is significantly better than Apple's Quicktime for two key reasons. You can set any size recording and you have way more control over FPS. I'm running it under Lion and while having 8 apps running including some big ones like Word, Outlook, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, and Safari I was still able to set an HD size on my scren and capture video at 60fps of me working in apps and watching streaming content. The 60fps allowed me to slow the video down by 1/2 and still have smooth video and audio during editing. I was totally impressed. It may not have all the built-in editing and special features like Screenflow or Camtasia have but for the price it is so perfect for many users including pro's.

Review by Avenged110

“Shouldn’t be hard to get right.” Apparently, it really isn't. - After nothing but terrible results with Quicktime, (stuttering galore, performance, no controls), I came across this free gem. Haven’t had any issues and finally, someone proved that getting a smooth screen recording on modern hardware isn’t impossible. Also of note, 60fps is beatuiful and a much appreciated feature.
