Screen Imp:
Tutorial 4

Since the camera looks at the whole desktop, if Screen Imp itself is in view, that may show the beginning of an infinite number of desktops. Exactly the same as pointing a video camera at its monitor. Instead, choose to have the view of Screen Imp with its window content blank, from the View page in main settings.
