I'd like to capture a Full-Screen DOS session (either through Windows or just in plain DOS) and save it to a movie format like an AVI.  If anyone knows of a program to help me do this, please let me know.      Thanks, Craig

There is Microsoft(R) CamCorder. But this one's good for capturing windows sessions. I don't know whether it you can record in full-screen DOS mode. It's supposedly included in Office'97

Heading the same problem I found Corel-Capture 7 which is delivered within CorelDraw 7. It captures only the window you are working with- so it is like "fullscreen".
PROBLEM: It captures with Millions of colors and you can not adjust it. A movie of 30 seconds, resolution 800x600 sizes about 300 MB. Maybe Version 8 is better. Hope anyone finds a better solution.

use any screen capture program (CCAPTURE, PRINTSCREEN, ETC.), then bring it into Premiere and output it to AVI..

I want to capture a whole session in DOS, not just a single frame.
