What is ScreenNinja?

ScreenNinja is the perfect tool to record Time-Lapse screencasts of your long-running creative processes. It lets you transform the creation of your next digital painting, comic, icon, website or other work of art, into an interesting and exciting Time-Lapse video.

One click will start your recording. Or, you can explore the options that control how ScreenNinja will record and what will be visible in your recordings.

ScreenNinja has Ninja Powers

You can Hide apps from your recording, or 'Solo' the apps you're using (and automatically hide everything else). Hiddden apps remain visible on your screen where you can use and interact with them, but they magically vanish from your recordings.1
