            Awfully cool!
            With a camera or just with a regular TV tuner,
            it's a very fun toy to play with! Loved to see our

            This program is goddamn cool! It took a bit of a fight to get it up and running, but once going there's no stopping it. I /LOVE/ the radioactive effect!

            If you have a camera, this is a must try. Get it now!

            Would be nice if you could capture to AVI/MOV or something, but this may be asking too much... it's already a cool program. Absolutely no complaints!
