Some interesting news:
- Updated to 2.37 2022, May, 1st
- Repackaged since 2.36 (see
"New installer and portable versions with the full package (no .NET 6 download required) are available alongside with the lighter versions, which still require the installation of .NET 6 desktop runtime."

So, now we can have either:
- a self contained "" at 67.7 MB
- or a minimal "" at 6.96 MB... but we need .NET 6 installed on the PC :)

I will try it now, for sure :)

The editor for this program just gets better and better. I've really enjoyed seeing it's progress over time.

ScreenToGif would be even better, if it was not for its unwieldy Net Framework 4.6.1 addiction
(2.5 GB of available hard disk space required).

For me, I'll stick with leaner, self-contained GifCam instead, thank you.

I'm the developer of this application. If you need any assistance, please visit the GitHub page.

Btw, if you really want achieve portability, you should set the temporary files location to a single dot ("." without quotes) under Options > Temporary Files.

Need more information on what values it create that makes it not stealthy. Very useful software by the way.
