About ALLCapture 2

ALLCapture 2 is from Balesio, a company based in Germany that also creates PPTMinimizer, Turbodemo, etc. You can learn more about these products, and download a trial version of ALLCapture 2 here.

ALLCapture 2 is the newest version, the older version was reviewed here.

The new features are:

  • Memory Space: The new Memory Manager allows for hours of video capturing by storing on the hard drive or other storage media.
