FRep Till GapRecord Settings

FRep has 3 recording mode, switchable here.  In any mode, pushing Power button will finish recording.

– Mode: Simple (Default)
Basic mode which records input and initial screenshot, until the Power button push.  Up to 15 minutes* or 1 MB data.

– Mode: Till Gap
Simpler mode which records input and initial screenshot, until FRep detects no input period designated by the slider “Input Gap” below.  Up to 15 minutes* or 1 MB data.

– Mode: Progress
Advanced mode which records input and screenshot continuously, separated by “Input Gap” period.  No limit for total time or data size, but long recording need separation to avoid single record > 15 min* or > 1 MB.

*Limit is 10 minutes for FRep version less than 5.0.

TIPS to choose Recording Mode:

Simple / Till Gap for short recording, simple repeat tap or operations without processing delays.

Progress for long-time recording, including CPU load and/or network connection wait, etc.  This mode will automatically generate editable replay sequence with some controls. See posts in tutorial category.

Simple tips about how to use for FRep. Tap to see next tip.

FRep Calibrate InputCalibrate Input

The dialog can be opened from menu. This collects Tap/Swipe/Long-tap/Double-tap signal information, to reuse on playing Touch control, or Tap Center on Success in Wait Image control designated by Edit Sequence.

– Start Calibration
Start collecting the touch signal information respectively.  Do touches as shown in the dialog.  After touches, push Test button and confirm the touch operations complete without stop, then save them.

Note that the first single tap may be difficult on highly-sensitive touch screen. Try a touch as quick as a flash, after waiting 1 second from retry notification. The threshold will be loosen as the single tap fails.

– Diff Conf.FRep Input difference
Only when the Touch control or Tap Center on Success in Wait Image control played at shifted position, push this button to configure offsets.  If the functions have no problem, do not set values (i.e. set 0 for all directions).

By setting values at the box of each direction (based on the standard direction of device hardware), you can set the offset for the coordinates of touch device.  If your device has sub-display, to adjust the input coordinates for main display, set the size of the input range for the sub-display.  Since the size and direction depend on the machine, please try some values, by considering the rate and difference between Touch device and Screen pixels.

The size of Touch devices: are max value for each coordinate (so actually the device use 0~max), obtained from the touch input device.  Since the input signals are adjusted by built-in method, the size are not necessarily matched with the Screen pixels.  For example, some machine have precise touch device which has more than double the screen resolution, some have touch device which has same lengths for both of vertical and horizontal axes.
