Hi Tyratinger,

I see that you posted this question back in October. I'm just now checking out the forums, so I'm not sure you still need help with this question.

SnagIt's video cature to AVI should work. If you need help with this, please contact TechSmith's free technical support at

One of our other products, Camtasia Studio, might be what you're looking for, though. It's designed to capture AVI files and then edit them, etc., and then publish them to SWF, WMV, etc. I depends on what you're like to do with the AVI.

Let us know if we can help further.
