If you're on the previous version of the beta and getting an error at launch, download and reinstall the beta. Alternatively you can use the following workaround.

  • A quick patch to fix an error some people encountered when launching the beta (#558)
  • Also introduces dark mode support for native components (#478)

Improvements introduced in our last release:

  • Setting and editing the dimensions and aspect ratio of the cropper is greatly improved (#528)
  • Previewing in fullscreen now behaves much nicer and more predictable (#540, #542)
  • Plugins are available for use in the Editor immediately after installing (#516)
  • Turning off audio in the Editor is now accurately reflected in the exported file 😶 (#525)
  • Which leads us to our final Editor improvement; Kap remembers your last used export method, making exporting far quicker (#238)

We're ramping up for our 3.0 release, this Kap Beta introduces a complete rewrite in Next.js and a completely new approach to recording and sharing. Here are some of the new features you can try:

  • You can now work with multiple Kaptures at once! (#263)
  • Drop an existing video file on the Kap icon to open it, allowing you to trim and convert it to the format of your choice (#244)
  • When Editing your Kapture, you can right click in the Preview to grab a Snapshot of the current frame (#462)
  • Configure Plugins that require it visually within Kap (#286)

As usual there are of course also a whole host of bug fixes and performance improvements.

  • Fixed dimension swapping.
  • Fixed moving the fullscreen cropper.
  • Fixed undefined error in the FPS input in the editor.
  • Kap now only tries to fetch plugins from the public npm registry. Previously, if you had a .npmrc file in your home directory with an alternative registry, it would use that.
  • Kap now includes the app name in the update notification so you can more clearly see what app the notification is from.

This update is largely a maintenance release consisting of a number of bug fixes and improvements – that being said there's some pretty nifty new stuff thanks to our contributors:

@karaggeorge, @albinekb, @kevva, @sallar and @stevenpeniche.

  • There's now an option to turn off the global record shortcut. It's useful for people that had it conflict with other apps. This is a temporary solution until we add ability to specify custom keyboard shortcuts.
  • Kap now activates the system "Do Not Disturb" feature while recording. If you don't want this, you can turn it off in the Preferences window.
  • A new experimental option to hide desktop icons while recording. This can be useful if your desktop is messy or if you have sensitive files there.
