PC screen recorders to record longer duration training.

Hi, I am to attend a web training 10, 3 hour sessions. I am told there won't be any recordings available after, but we are encouraged to record outselves.

In the below, list, from your experience, can suggest the best pick for entry level (vide o& audio) recorder:
*able to record 3 hours straight
*relatively taking less space on HDD.


(the training will have option to make it full screen).

could you guide which one will be you choose, if you are just getting started on this, with the above intent?

David, let's say I try the 1 month trial of Camtasia.. and I saved some .trec files. If I don't but the $299 license, will I still be able to play the .trec files? thanks.

Leslie, I will try MS product along with Camtasia.. do you believe it also has good economic file saving ability. (avoiding too huge files).
