very easy intuitive fast and clear program, i autoboot it everytime

Really glad I tried this, usually I use fascapture, but this has some great features over it. Like others have said an ability to be able to save captures as pdf would be nice, but hardly essential. There are other programs on here to convert images to pdf.

Chronolapse v1.0.7

lautrepay on 4 Jul 2012

Chronolapse is a tool for creating time lapses on windows using screen captures, webcam captures, or both at the same time. CL also provides some rudimentary tools for annotating your time lapse, as well as creating a picture-in-picture effect with two sets of images. Each piece of Chronolapse functionality has been created to work stand-alone to make the program more versatile. For example, you can easily capture with another program and create a PIP in Chronolapse, or capture with Chronolapse and annotate somewhere else.

System Requirements: WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: GDIPLUS.DLL and Microsoft Visual Studio libraries: msvcm90.dll, msvcp90.dll, msvcr90.dll
Stealth: ? Yes
Path portability: Requires manual entry of relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: MIT License
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch chronolapse.exe.

Taksi v0.7.7.2

Checker on 4 Aug 2014
  • 320KB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Fluffy

Taksi is a video/screen capture tool for 3D applications. It can capture from almost any DirectX, OpenGL or GDI window and capture video of the contents. Although videos can be compressed, this is not recommended as it further slows down an already taxing process

Note: This application is still in development and some features are not yet implemented (such as recording audio).

System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: Application folder
License: BSD
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and extract to a folder of your choice using the "MSI Administrative Installation" method
  2. Delete the .MSI file (name varies depending on version eg. taksi-0.7.6.msi) and TaksiLogo.jpg
  3. LaunchTaksi.exe
Recommendations: Turning video compression off for the best performance. Click on "Config", then the "Format" tab, then the "Video Codecs" button. Select "Full Frames (Uncompressed)" from the drop-down dialog, then click "OK". The program will warn you that this uses up a very large amount of diskspace: click "OK" and then Save).

The version at Softpedia IS portable BUT it sets reg keys.

I made a JPE launcher for it as well.

Just download Wink from offical website then open the installer with 7zip and drag files in $R0 to App. You can delete the URL shortcut as well as the uninstaller if you want to save a bit of room :S

XtattiK on 2009-12-04 07:07

Sweet - my work just changed policy on user installation of i've been hunting around like crazy for portable versions of all my fave programs so i can still use them. This works perfectly, cheers.

ChemZ on 2011-01-11 00:17

The Softpedia/PortableApps download link doesn't actually contain Wink, just the wrapper/launcher (which you will still need).

As -.- said:

- You need to download Wink from
- Extract with 7zip or Universal Extractor
- Then copy the contents of $R0 into the App\Wink folder of the wrapper/launcher.

Bit of a hassle but it works. Good luck!
