Videocat is a image capture software based on Microsoft DirectShow API.

VideoCAT 1.0.6 is comming soon with lots of new features (like chroma-key) and redesigned interface (now with multiple windows). To version 1.2.0 we are trying to implement MMX/SSE functions and OpenGL API to icrease performance for realtime effects and post-capture image processing.
