I've been using
import from Imagemagick to take screenshot of my second monitor every 15 seconds, and then later assembled the images using
mencoder - thus creating a timelapse of what has been going on on my desktop during the time. This worked great when I used Gnome 2 - but as of late, my shots has gotten several artifacts in them. Black rectangles appearing in various places.
This does not occur with gnome-screenshot, but I need something that is powerful enough to do the equivilent to this:
# Capture 1920 x 1080 to file, starting at position 1680 x 0 (Monitor to the # left is 1680x1050, monitor to the right is 1920 x 1080 - I want to capture the # monitor to the right.) while [ 1 ]; do import -window root -crop 1920x1080+1680+0 ~/img/foo-$(date +%y%m%d-%H%M%S).jpg sleep 15 done
gnome-screenshot does not seem to have the options available to do this. I have not found any way to make the artifacts in the shots of
import go away.
Does anyone have any clever suggestions for me?
