Computer Screen Recording Software

Hi Folks,

I'm a fish outta water over here on the pc side of things. I'm in the process of editing photoshop tutorials for cs, cs2 and cs3 for the mac and pc. I'm currently using ScreenFlow for the mac side of things and am very happy with it. What I'm looking for is a no frills recording software that will allow me to record my full screen and then output to an easy to manage file type (mov hopefully).

Can someone recommend a great windows product for computer screen recording?

Thanks in advance!

Camtasia studio - Although, I use hardware now. The MXO box is great for raw HD-SDI capture of flicker free computer screens.

You immediate choices are

Adobe captivate
Camtasia

I would recommend Camtasia, simple , powerful, easy to use..

Quite a similar workflow to movie making, you create individual screen movies and then you can convert them to individual flash files or you can arrange them into chaptered sets if screen movies.
The trick with the chapters is you have to mark each individual or group of items with a marker to set the chapter point.
