RenderDoc is a frame-capture based graphics debugger, currently available for Vulkan, D3D11, D3D12, OpenGL, and OpenGL ES development on Windows 7 - 10, Linux, Android, Stadia, and Nintendo Switch™. It is completely open-source under the MIT license.
To install on windows run the appropriate installer for your OS (64-bit | 32-bit) or download the portable zip from the builds page. The 64-bit windows build fully supports capturing from 32-bit programs. On linux there is a binary tarball available, or your distribution may package it. If not you can build from source.

There are binary releases available, built from the release targets. If you just want to use the program and you ended up here, this is what you want :).
It's recommended that if you're new you start with the stable builds. Nightly builds are available every day from the v1.x branch here if you need it, but correspondingly may be less stable.
As mentioned above there are some youtube videos showing the use of some basic features and an introduction/overview.
RenderDoc is released under the MIT license, see LICENSE.md for full text as well as 3rd party library acknowledgements.
Building RenderDoc is fairly straight forward on most platforms. See Compiling.md for more details.
