Recording solution on MacOSX

Kirby asked in a comment on my 3rdRail video post what software I used to record the videos.

Don't laugh, but I (and others) haven't found anything much better than VNC to a Windows machine and use Camtasia, so that's what we did.

Feel free to share your thoughts on what we *should* use for Mac. The solution we have is far from perfect, but it does work better than other ones we have seen.

  3. David Dean is right, Snapz Pro X is really good for this stuff.

    The real pain comes with the post-video editing - iMovie seems to downsample everything from the original 1024x768 to NTSC/PAL. And then there's the fun of generating the Flash files...
