i have a number of Screencam files (created over a long time) that i now need to make in to AVI files so i can create a video CD.

I have seen a number of programs such as Camtasia that basically screen capture and also audio capture but it only records in realtime so i will be doing it for hours and i will have to be sat with it all the time. unable to do anything else with the computer as it will be recorded to.

Are there any programs that can just convert rather than re record

Sheeesh not the answer you want.  

Well this won't be the answer you want either but I fear it is the only answer at the moment.  Basically you already have the right idea on how to do this using camtasia and dubit to record the sound. I assume you have read this already http://fr.techsmith.com/products/studio/tutorials/archive/lotus.asp

The only other good software i know of that converts weird formats is river past video cleaner.  But i think the weirdest one they do is Quicktime movies files.  http://www.riverpast.com/en/prod/videocleaner/features.php this is a very good piece of software but does not do scm files.  I remember reading something to do with the Lotus patent on the format that basically means no one can convert from it or to it unless licenced to do so.

I assume they have the tools but they are not available to us as yet.  If anyone can proove me wrong then I would love to know about it.   Best advice for you is to convert to mpeg format int the future instead of scm files.  I personally have a bunch here too that I bought on CD but I want to stick them on a DVD and watch them on television but I cannot do that  :(

Anyway I hope you have more luck than I did, or else we are both in the same boat!
