A Graphics Question for Flutterbarians

2005-08-19 23:45:24.174126+00 by ziffle 2 comments

I want to capture some computer screen output - that is record some things going on on the screen. I found this great program called Camtasia which works well. It allows easy recording, editing of the file, etc, and will output in AVI.

But I am a neophite at this. How do I put this on to a VHS or Beta format for displaying on a TV? What is the best screen resolution, size etc. for this? Is AVI what I really want for this? Is there a better choice of tools for this?

Ah yes, in Mayberry we are always behind the technology, can anyone help a dual citizen - that is Flutterbarian/Mayberrian?

(1) get a card with a good S-video TV-out. ATI's cards tend to have better quality output but lousier drivers; I'd stick with an Nvidia-based card.

(2) Get a VCR with an S-video input.

(3) Connect the two together.

(4) Play on the computer, record on the VCR.

Resolution will probably have to be 640x480.

VMware rocks at this. has a 'record movie' mode. And a 30day trial is available.
