Almost full screen video capture with SnagIt

It was just a few years ago, when I was making my screen captures of Excel using Jing Pro, where I relied on a region that was 960:540 pixels, large enough to get at some interesting content but small enough that when YouTube compressed the video it still would be largely viewable.

The last day or so I've been making near full screen captures with SnagIt (Jing Pro is dead) and publishing those to YouTube, then having the students view them full screen.  Below is an example.  Focus on the image quality, not the content.  For the first several seconds it is blurry, but then it is remarkably sharp.

Now I've got to work on getting the content I make to live up to that standard.
