During one of the Belgian Java User Group (BeJUG) sessions the speaker used QuickTime Player to record his own presentation. Yes, the more recent MacBook Pro’s are powerful enough to record your screen, audio (using built-in microphone) and meanwhile do your presentation and demo’s!
The BeJUG hibernate 3.6 presentation by Emmanuel Bernard was a 2 hour presentation with two demo’s, the end result can be viewed HERE.
The recording used the default screen resolution from the portable which was 1900 x 1200 resulting in a 500Mb QuickTime MOV file. After the presentation the movie was saved using the 1080p option.
