Dmitry at Solveig Multimedia sent me the press release for the release of HyperCam 3. Their new release is a low-cost (under 30 Euros) screencasting tool for Windows that integrates a simple editor, it is probably going to be a very useful tool for low-budget screencasting.
HyperCam 3 can record live-video and regular screens and the recorder can use a small window that follows the mouse around the screen.
Once I get my hands on a copy I’ll do a review. You might want to see my earlier notes on the pre-release of HyperCam 3.
To improve your screencasting knowledge you must read The Screencasting Handbook. The author (Ian Ozsvald) also blogs.
