I'm looking for a terminal session recorder that is able to capture ncurses program nicely and correctly. I have tried asciinema which didn't quite work, just as terminalizer didn't. I haven't been able to even install ttystudio.

Here's what asciinema produced:


As you can see, the border looks like it's dashed despite the fact that it's solid in reality, the snake is discontinuous and some characters are missing on the shell prompt.

When it comes to terminalizer, when I tried to record a tetris session, my tetrominos were all over the place, and in short, it just didn't work.

The end goal is to have a small embeddable GIF.
