cassiotones had trouble on 27 Sep 2007
I think there is something wrong, maybe a bug, it's not working for me :(
When I press "alt  0" the script icon blinks but nothing happens. I manage to make it work by clicking on "script folder" openning the script with the mouse and the taking the snapshot. But I think that's not the way it is supposed to work, right? But so far it looks like a promising app :)

I have the same problem ( Macbook 1.83Ghz ) even if I tried " alt  1 or 2 or... till 0 " doesn't work
Me to I open the script and did it... it is working but like that you cant take all the full screen DVD's picture.
It is free and is great... need some fixing

This could be a problem with another hot key on your computer that is the same of alt cmd 0 or your using the wrong key.

yeah, maybe. I just tried it right now. Alt Cmmd 0 and the script icon on menu bar blinks but I can see any picture nowhere... At least not on my desktop or in the script folder... Am I doing something wrong? I dont believe I have this hot key set to anything else...

Mr. Gecko
i'm using FCP ( since 1999 ), Motion Photoshoop, Gimp, Soundtrack etceteras, i'm not scare using your program!!!!
I tried everything I could do and it is not working as it should do !!!
No POP UP menu, nada de nada better NOTHING !!!!!

this is the only way to make it is working:
manually , open the script folder and then click the DVD Shot.scpt, after that click the green arrow/button, the dvd stop > a Pop Up menu open and ask where to save the file... save it and automatically the dvd start playing again.

I do not think this is the way your program, a promising one, should work but this is the way is working in my computer .

ciao

Good luck.

Adding my ditto. None of the possible combos of command-option-number work. I have the DVD player version as listed by Mr Gecko. The only way that I could get the destination path request window to appear was by opening the script and then clicking the Run button. I had to have the DVD paused at the desired location, because the process took far longer than the writer planned hot key stimulator.

I am not an Apple script programmer, so my question/comment may be entirely unfounded. I cannot see anyplace in the code that says "do this when key-key-key is pressed" The whole, simple problem that all of us experienced was NO TRIGGER.
