Hello Folks.

I would like to share a WIP video demo of an addon I am working on to
expedite the creation my Blender tutorials and documenting my experiments.

I have been working on this tool for over a week in my spare time. This
builds on top of the
that comes bundled with Blender. I have implemented the following
capture modes for the time being

   1. Capture entire screen
   2. Capture all the areas in the current screen
   3. Capture screen and all the areas as well.

The fundamental difference between the factory operator and mine is the way
captures files are saved. In the former, we have to manually save it using
the invoked file browser and in the latter files are automagically saved

*[cwd = current working directory]*While designing this addon, I
consciously chose *OSKey[+Shift|+Ctrl]+C* hot-key combination as it is in
line with Blender's philosophy of one hand on keyboard and one hand on
mouse workflow. And the C stands for capture.

Let me know if this is something that might be useful to any of you.  I
will make the addon available for testing in a day or two.
