What happened to the Screen Capture mode to record timelapses

Seems like Blender used to have a way to record timelapses of your work similar to how Procreate or Clip Studio records a timelapses of your paintings. The docs are gone though https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/latest/editors/info/screen_capture.html

This was in a galaxy and time far far away in the the times of 2.79… now it’s only Window ->Screenshot because there are multiple screencast apps out there… (and there would be thousends of people complaining that it doesn’t works as XYZ :wink:).

Blender 2.8 removed the Make Screenshot button/function. As stated here. In any case, is there any reason why you can’t use the OpenGL render? Windows 10/11 have their own native, Xbox Game Bar that allows real-time recording. The only downside of the tool is that it cannot capture multiple windows at once, only the window that was initially active in, for instance if I started it in Blender, I couldn’t move minimize or display Photoshop in another window, even if it’s digitally visible. Other popular and alternative recording softwares include, but are not limited to: OBS and Bandicam.
