Hi,

I'm looking for a program that will capture what I do on the screen and then save it as a video file.

Is there anything like this?

Thanks,

JK

JK yeah as Woodendude said in his first replay,

http://www.techsmith.com/download/snagitdefault.asp?lid=DownloadSnagIt    is probably the best and well known but there are others too.

Actually Woodendude I just notice you pointed him towards Snagit, thats for screen captures not video captures.

JK this is the one you want from Techsmith http://www.techsmith.com/products/studio/default.asp?lid=CamtasiaStudioHome.

Camtasia is it's name, its pretty good too and has quite good video compression rates after you record.

It has been a couple of years since I used it ya know, i always used to use Camtasia.  I guess thats why they have taken Camtasia down the route that it comes with video editing tools, now I bet Snagit does not have editing tools?

Heh don't answer that I don't want to know if it has or not :P  But jakekula o may want to know from you :)

 jakekula, here's the editing part of the snagit tour, I use Snagit 6, this is 7, Snagit comes with snagit and snagit studio which is where your editing is done.
