I Need A Video Recording Software

Hi Experts,

I am looking for a software that helps me record a video of how my application works in order to play it as a presentation.

I need the software to have some editing features as well in order to enhance my total video at the end (cut, copy, merge).

Any recommendations?

my deal is to suggest you PINNACLE STUDIO ULTIMATE COLLECTION HD v 14.
Is one of the best all-in-one capturing, editing, creator videos also in true HD.
here the link: http://www.pinnaclesys.com/PublicSite/us/Products/Consumer+Products/Home+Video/Studio+Family/Studio+Ultimate+Collection+14.htm

Or if you want the best free solution (not the better than Pinnacle product) you can use this Virtual dub.
Virtualdub is a well-known video capture, processing and editing software that allows you to capture video from an input source and perform simple video editing--> here the link:http://www.virtualdub.org/.

Another program you can use is DVD Styler. DVD Styler is an open source DVD authoring system for Windows and Linux. It converts MPEG files, which you can drag and drop into its window, create NTSC/PAL DVD menus which are highly customizable (you can set image backgrounds, put text and images anywhere, change the font and colours, etc), set chapters for the movie, etc.-->here the link: http://www.dvdstyler.de/

My suggest is to buy a pinnacle product! About 100$ to get into the video editing world as easy as possible.
Hope this article could satisfy you!
Best regards

Camtasia Studio it is a complete screen recording application, with cut and edit easy features. There are a 30 days trial for download.
Pinnacle Studio don't have screen capture tools. This tool is for recorded video editing, like movies.
Virtualdub rarely is used for video editing.
DVD styler it is another stranger indication. Don't will solve any your problems.
I use Applian's Replay Video Capture and edit in  Sony Vegas.
i'm doing my graphic works with success for year with these programs !

It has all, from capture to authoring!
the best deal!

Best regards

Hi Pandarossa

Pinnacle Studio is a excelent piece of software, but feesu wanted a "software that helps me record a video of how my application works in order to play it as a presentation." Pinnacle Studio it is not a application for newcomers, will be very hard to fessu do those presentations. Camtasia Studio is a more specific app exactly for screen recording and editing. With Camtasia and almost no experience at all, anyone can finish a video on Camtasia in a hour.
