Camstudio is free and iv used it alot in making tutorials for other, like how to install game patches or game mods.

You can record both sound and your desktop, also you can either record an area of the screen or the whole screen.

Well worth getting.

hi tucker1975

As far as I know, if you want to record gameply, there're only two screencast programs that can deal with it. Fraps and hypercam.

For making tutorial or presentation, as you mentioned, guide of using Pinnacle. You can try some Web-based screen recording service like Screenr. It allows you to record narration and publish the video online directly.

Of course those screen recording software with powerful editing features like DemoCreator and BB Flashbck are also highly recommended. You can try the trial version first.
