Ignoring the regulatory issues (interesting to me but not to all
Whirlers), does anyone have experience using WebEx recorder? It claims
to "record the actions that you take when using a Windows application or

apparently be used independently of WebEx's Internet seminar functions.


I haven't used the recorder. However, if it is based on the same engine that is used for the seminar, one caution is that it uses extremely high compression, resulting in distorted, blurred, and dithered graphics. This is a design challenge rather than a reason to avoid the tool. That is, by the judicious avoidance of gradient fills, fine oblique lines, and small fonts, you can probably end up with satisfactory results. However, screen shots of an application can be problematic.
