Recording your game

I need to record my screen for my game, but I don't know what programs are good. Are there any free mac screen capture programs to record video of my game? I tried jing but it exports toto the wrong format.

Jing, my dear student, is a program that lets you record your screen. Very on topic, isn't it?

Jing worked perfectly, but it made the video in swf, or flash. I can't put it in iMovie, and I want it in at least QuickTime format. I don't know what to use to convert it.

I don't know either, I was being rude. Sorry Maybe open in quicktime and then "save as" a different file extension.

Change the file format, and if you want me to make a gameplay video or trailer, PM me. It is free, and if you don't like my work, feel free to reject it.

We used iShowU, a screen capture program, and recorded the simulator right off the screen to make the Imangi and Word Squares videos:

Lastly, ScreenFlow, while it is considered the best and most powerful screen-capturing tool for Macs, it's going to cost you a little if you get past the free demo.

I also use iShowU. It works great!
