    Is it possible to grab a screen shot of the entire RED Touch 7” screen (info and overlays included) in camera? Using Dragon X DSMC2. Thanks.

    I'm interested in this as well - any way to get screenshots of the RED GUI without using a camera?

    You can set a hot key for screen grab, it grabs the menu overlay and not the image on screen.

    Would be great if it grabbed the image too. Surely not to hard to achieve...

    More difficult than you'd think considering how the monitor path works and where that overlay is generated.

    The other option is to simply use an external display with a capture frame function.
