I've been playing around with the quality and formats and it never occured to me that it would reduce the stutter, I guess I hadn't noticed; I assumed the stutter was random in how long it lasted. This is great to know though, and really helpful, the screenshots don't need to be good quality for what I need, but as less intrusive to the user's experience as possible is what I need.
