Subject: Re: New Poll: Screen Capture Challenges
Our solution was similar to the one I suggested in an earlier thread. We tap the display circuits of prototype units to port mirrors of the embedded UI to a virtual machine on a workstation and do screencaps from there.
If a working UI has not been built yet, we manually paste the UI graphic elements onto a background in Photoshop and type in the UI text strings (which we write and/or edit for the design teams) to build a simulated UI screen.
I said it was our biggest challenge. I didn't say we hadn't solved it. :)
