Gyazo is an absolute wonder for taking screen captures and videos – a whole area or just a section of your screen. Free users can take screen captures, up to 7 seconds of video and view recent captures. Pro users can take up to 60 seconds of video and access their whole history of captures. I upgraded to Pro user and it’s phenomenal. Highly, highly recommended.
Great blog article on creating gyazo gif’s, camera settings and tricks for recording:

Hot keys and stuff I didn’t know that I need to try:
- Ctrl 0 zooms in
- Ctrl 8 zooms out
- Ctrl 9 resets cam
- Alt-click focuses on an object
- If you have depth of field enabled in preferences, when you alt-click on an object what you click on will be in focus, the rest out of focus. Things farther away will be more blurry, just like RL.
- control+alt+F1 hides the user interface and nametags
- shift+alt+H hides HUDs
- if you’re taking portraits, if you have the avatar alt-click on a cube, their eyes will follow the cube as you move it
