automatic screenshots in regular intervals

Post by XnTriq »

Is there a way to create automatic screenshots in regular intervals (Classic or MP)?

In the absence of any reply, a simple online search for 'automatic screenshots' brings up several utilities that might meet your needs, although I realise that you have probably already done that! :wink:

Maybe a feature request for XnView MP?

Thanks, cday :-) I had found Automatic Screenshotter, but – needless to say – I would prefer XnView.

Sounds like a job for AutoHotKey. You could call XnView from the command-line and therefore still do part of the job with it. I use AutoHotHey to take screenshots in games. You can define a timer in the script or a loop with a sleep time to execute a command at regular intervals.
