record a patch to video

    Jan 03 2010 | 1:25 am
    Hello, 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, sean

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

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