I was wondering if anyone has some suggestions for hi def video capture options that people have tried in SL.  Also, is there a way to go full screen?   thanks

Awesome, thanks :matte-motes-bashful-cute-2: Looks like Camstudio (a bit pricey @$300.00 though) and ctrl + alt + F1 to hide the UI and Ctl + Alt + F7 to bring it back.

In the Second Life Options under graphics I think there is a setting for full screen, or press Alt + Enter, but make sure you set the screen resolution to the one you want otherwise it wont look so great.

As for Video Recording, I would try Camtasia, and then download a free program called Divx, through the options in Camtasia set it up to use the Divx Codecs tweak it for max FPS/good HD quality, and then set the screen area to record and start recording.

1. Camtasia. < For Videos
2. Divx < which is free for the codecs.
3. WireCast < For Streaming.

This is what I use currently and it works pretty good.

Of course there are free programs out there but I wouldn't expect the best quality from them, or the best settings.

cam studio is free, I use it all the time. I am sure there is a paid version, but I just use the free version and it works fine. You can select the size you want to capture from full screen to anything smaller by setting it manually or just dragging the window before you record. Just keep in mind the larger the picture you try capture the harder it hits your computer and the longer it takes to render. From what I have seen though audio is what takes the longest to render. If you disable the audio the stuff renders much faster.

Also what you use to encode the video makes a big difference. You have to play with a few to find what you like and what works best for you. I think I use FFV but I am not sure, I would have to open up the program and take a look. Some of the default video encoders do suck though. The video comes out looking like crap.

Pretty much all the videos I do though are eventually edited and rendered at 720p which is high def. The trick is finding an encoder that will render fast moving images well and still let you sync the audio well.
