Oops...I see now that the output from screencast is not fixed png but 
selectable by the render output type (never tried before:)!) . The 
screen capture rate is still determined by the capture settings in User 
Pref.  Possibly why they are seperate is to allow you to screen cast at 
lower rates and at the same time demonstrate setting up VSE or render 
settings to another value?

All the action is here:::

The problem mentioned below still occurs regardless of capture type. 
Trying to find out why.
