The most recent version of Snagit's video outputs are much lighter in color. Noticed it immediately after first use. It doesn't seem to be effecting the regular (non-video) screen captures for some reason. Just video.
Here are some comparisons to illustrate. You can see where the first (bottom) image (which was created by video first and then I just downloaded a PNG from that) is much lighter and the grey colors are barely legible.
Just to make sure I wasn't imagining something, I did a regular, non-video screen capture using same Snagit (middle image).
Top image is using Camtasia to create a short screencast of same page, and then using Export > Export Frame As to obtain the static image of a frame of that video. MUCH clearer.
I even tried exporting the washed out Snagit video to Camtasia to see if that did anything. Still washed out.
Hope we can get this resolved soon. I use Snagit daily and am not happy with this degradation in visual quality.
