record a patch to video

Does anyone know an effective way to record a patch’s video and sound as well as the screen actions (numbers changing, bang buttons blinking etc.) as a video file. I am trying to make a control panel type video using a source video, manipulated sound as well as some graphical information from the patcher window. I have prepared how I want it to look in the presentation window, but I am a little stumped as to how to go about recording this. I really don’t want to get out a video camera and record the screen and audio. There has got to be a cleaner way to do this. I have tried the jit desktop, but I get a lot of stuttering. Can anyone suggest something?

Scratching my head over this,

Perhaps habe a look at something like iShowU which has worked pretty well for me on Tiger.

I’m using Snapz Pro X:

works like a charm.

jing is also good, and if you can afford it, Camtasia is fantastic. files look great and are small.
