    Wink looks good I think I'd used Camstudio before, which was fine, but the video came out with VERY odd colours - XP Tellytubbyland background but with pink grass anyone?

    Our IWB software does it - it's built into Smart Board software. Not sure about Promethian and others, but I'd imagine they're much the same...

    Microsoft Expression Encoder is a free download and Encoder Pro is part of Expression Studio which you can get under MSDNAA (free to Schools Agreement customers). Our staff seem to get on very well with it.
