Camtasia studio is nice for that kind of thing. Google it.

I tried the programs in the pixel art recording topic (one of which is camtasia) while it's probably the best I've tried so far the main downside is the audio quality is quite poor

still, thanks anyway :)

edit-
Today, I finished Super Metroid Redesign, a rom hack made specifically for the Metroid elite.
what a game, the first couple hours are so brutal, but once you clear hells run (almost 0 chance for error) is where the game gets a bit easier.
I finished with 88.5% items and 19 hours play time, it really is a massive game, so if you want to see if you're good enough, prepare to be a bit overwhelmed by the massive map.

I also want to acknowledge how impressive a romhack this is, several parts of the game were completely new and had to be hard-coded, you've got the 3 bomb limit ala Prime, Shine sparking ala Fusion/Zero Mission, wall jump boots are needed, you can activate both space jump and screwattack individually on the same jump, I could go on.
It's almost an entirely new game, one I picked up to cope with the wait for Prime 3.

In other Metroid news, Gametrailers has been doing a Metroid Retrospective, they've only done 2/5 parts, but they're doing a really good job, watch it.

Taka, just record it using camtasia and then use a different audio software to record yourself, and put it as a soundtrack to the movie.

You gonna use it for pixel art only or no? No point in getting a pressure sensitive tablet if it'll only be used for pixel art.

Baw! Even if it's bought for the sole purpose of pixel art, he could still later try other media that better suits pressure sensitivity.
I have a hanvon tablet. Kinda crap, all its really got is pressure sensitivity. I'd recommend getting something worth more, ala a Wacom, but if you wanna save a few bucks, then the cheap alternatives aren't *bad*.

I am NOT pleased.
Each time I visit http://www.wayofthepixel.net/pixelation/ I am not logged in although I did log in during previous forum visits.
Yes I selected to stay logged in 'forever'.
Any explantation for that behaviour?
Does scaling an image blur it?

Yes. The forum is broken and we're working to get it back on proper behaviour.
