Copernicus for Mac1.5.2

08 March 2007

Take advanced screenshots.

What is Copernicus for Mac

Copernicus has been redesigned from the ground up to bring you the easiest screen capture and movie capture available.

It features the ability to capture movies directly to ram, offering higher framerates than possible with other programs. Once you are done recording your movie, you can export to any video format that QuickTime supports, including MPEG-4.

By default, screenshots are automatically directed to the thumbnail viewer, where you can sort through the screenshots you've taken, and make modifications such as removing the mouse cursor, or adding a watermark. Screenshots can be saved to many formats, including JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, and more.

The region selection tool is far more powerful than the one built into Mac OS X. Invoking region capture darkens the entire screen by 50%, then highlights your selection, so you can see exactly the picture you are going to get. The advanced mode allows you to create a selection rectangle by dragging the mouse. The arrow keys also work as nudge keys, and the coordinates of the selection are displayed in the sampler window. As a final added bonus, Copernicus can capture pictures of Classic applications, unlike the built in screenshot tool in OS X.

Compared to heavy concurrent apps sold at 30$, waooow! And it does what it says: you shoot, it captures and then you decide to keep it or not and where to save it. I've used for years the system integrated capture shortcuts or utility, even having tried Snapz & co, because of its integration within OSX, but I've got bored of having to go to the desktop and then move my picture to the right place (the Capture utility is not bad, of course but you've got some more stuff for free with Copernicus, such as the image browser, so why bother?). I'm on 10.4.11, so I suppose MOH2O is on Leopard to be so unlucky (or he has some buggy thing installed...). The only thing I can still dream of would be the ability to launch the region capture (for example) at launch, so you wouldn't even need to have it always running !

Crashes every time for me. Seemed like the right price though. How everyone here can give it 5 stars is beyond me. 'Would be nice if it worked. -moh2o

Ideas from COMPUTERWORLD magazine, by Scot Finnie: Image conversion among all major image formats and the capability to select a new default file format from among those image types. A facility that lets you control default options for some file formats, like number of colors and quality/compression levels (as with JPEGs, for example). Automatic, sequentially numbered file naming with user-specifiable root names (such as "OSXLeop_###") and folder-save-to locations. It should also let the user specify the starting number of the file-naming sequence. A capability that lets you optionally hide all but the Apple default desktop icons and other user customizations. User-configurable screen-capture delay with audible and/or visible countdown. This feature is sometimes required to set up and capture open menus, drop-downs, and so on. There should also be an option to include or not include the mouse pointer. Automatic selection of common object elements, such as program window, menu bar, toolbar, icons, the Dock, etc. (Apple's built-in Command-Shift-4-Spacebar key combination does this, but the facility is otherwise very limited). Snap-to selection for parts of objects is also very desirable. Any product that offers only a manual drag-selection tool for parts of the screen doesn't make the cut. Important functionality: A capture-preview window that appears before you save the file, so you can review it and make appropriate alterations. The capability to add basic (and preferably subtle) edge effects, such as rules, blurring, ripples, tear-aways, white borders and so on. The capability to make assisted selections within the preview to save as separate shots. The ability to save named sets of settings (such as file format, image quality, file name and file-save location, and object selection type) that can later be called by the user to suit specific capture needs.

I hope this beta is updated quickly. As-is, it's a few steps backward in functionality.

Well, it looks like it can't be downloaded at the moment. Hopefully they'll get their site back up by tomorrow or so. I've been a registered user of Copernicus for a while. It's a great way to capture screenshots, so I often keep it in the dock. I won't post a rating until I can download and try the new version though.

Has always worked great for me. Currently having some possible problems in Panther. Some saved files ended up in a different folder than chosen. Overlap with F-keys being used for Exposé and other Panther functions.
