    Question I need a diff program to record...

    I am using camtasia to record google earth fly tos but it is really skippy. Any advice on how to fix this or maybe a program you have had good luck with?

    Edit: I think i just need to try to record on my desktop on home instead of my laptop.

    I've had great luck with FRAPS in the past.

    Another key is how you do it. If I'm going to record some quick footage, I:

    -- Play it in GE a few times without recording to make sure it's all cached.
    -- Play it at a much slower speed than I plan to show -- 1/2 to 1/4 speed usually.
    -- After it's captured, I speed it back up in my video editing software.

    That smooths out a lot of the bumps. Of course, if you're wanting to do a long video or add real-time narration, the slow/speed option won't help. Still, giving it time to pre-cache will help, as will using your best PC (like you said).
