DirectTrans (Viewport Transform Capture)Author: hg
This gem, sharp-eyedly spotted by si-community user FXDude, directly captures/records any transforms of an object in the viewport without messing with device capture or mouse range remapping. Also great for realistic camera anims.

See this video for a demonstration. Japanese-to-english translation of the download page provided by Microsoft Translator.
