A new PlayClaw build with the Window capture overlay!

We've just released a new feature - Window capture overlay in PlayClaw 5 build #3670.

You can now set a window which will be captured by PlayClaw and then rendered over a game screen or/and in a video or a stream. The chroma key effect is also applicable to this overlay.

Other major changes:

  • Fixed DeadSpace 2 compatibility
  • Fixed confusing error messages for some desktop recording conditions
  • If PlayClaw terminates abnormally, then it will try to release locked DLLs to avoid problems during the next start or software update
  • Fixed rare crash after AMD H.264 encoder is stopped
  • Fixed wrong hardware AMD H.264 detection for some video devices

p.s. please note, Chroma key DLC is required to use this feature with Window capture overlay (both with Webcam overlay)
