With the imminent discontinuation of Adobe’s support for and development of Adobe Flash, Jing’s use of the .SWF Flash video format will no longer be possible.

Because we are passionate about making it easy for anyone to capture and share knowledge visually, TechSmith is committed to providing a free screen capture and screen recording tool for our customers. However, it became clear to us that this brought a new opportunity to build a new, more modern no-cost solution to provide even more benefit to our customers.

As such, we are excited to announce the release of a new free screen capture tool available now on

This new tool offers a number of features, including:

  • New, modernized video capture, including no limit on recording length.
  • Share to your Screencast account or to TechSmith Relay Enterprise.
  • Updated video format output to .MP4.

While it does not currently include image capture, in the next few months, this new tool will be updated to include image capture and annotation abilities, including:

  • Full screen and regional capture.
  • The ability to share screenshots to TechSmith Cloud services such as, as well as save to your local drive, or copy and paste into a document.
  • Simple annotation tools, including an arrow, rectangle, and a callout with font face and size control.

As Adobe Flash will soon no longer be a viable option for video output, users who need video capture, should download and begin using our new tool. Users who need image capture should continue to use Jing for screenshots until the new tool has been updated later this year.
