Here is the wowace page for it
Is there some documention for Transcriptor?
Couldn't find it on curse/wowinterface/ui.worldofwar.
And Google showed only "use transcriptor!" sort of messages. :/
Basicly, hit the red button on your minimap when you start your event, and it records simmilar to the combat log(althoug saved in the savedvariables file), all broken down by what event fired it.

I tried it this weekend, and so far it has caused no problems in AQ40 (up to TE) and Naxx (Raz/Anub/Faerlina). I'll find out if it goes nuts on Razor/BL next week.
I can only provide non-empirical evidence, however from a personal perspective I see no difference in performance from increasing combat log range. If you try it and it does not suit you you can always reset it!
I also made the switch from DamageMeters to SwStats 2 Beta 3 (beta 4 now out but zip file seems corrupted) and found it much more powerful and informative. The new Timeline analysis feature is especially useful, allowing me to separate trash/boss data with 1 click for later analysis. It also has much more detail than DamageMeters, listing player abilities used, damage types sustained, targets healed etc.
Its still lacking a few things that would help with analysis though. It doesnt record every ability : the ones I noticed were power word shields and totem usage. It also doesnt say which players hit which mobs.
