Greetings folks!

I'm looking for a good way to capture annotations made to ppt slides and graphics. I'm seeing this more and more in online learning modules. I'm hoping for a non-time intensive (not motion graphics/AE) solution. We currently have wacomm tablets that output DVI which work well for live presentations but I'd like to find a good way to capture those annotations as a video file that I could import in my timeline. Maybe there is a device that will output HDMI video? Or maybe there is a much better or simpler solution? This what an old schooler like myself would call the JON MADDEN tele-strator effect :)

As always thanks for helpful advice and suggestions!

Some of the more advanced screen recording apps have some of this functionality. Have you tried looking at those?

Back when I had a Pinnacle Alladin, I could use that to do the exact Madden thing, by keying it's tablet-driven output over the live switched video, recording both to tape. Alas, that marvel of tech has finally been retired here. But you should be able to replicate the effect live, by running a wacom tablet to a laptop running some drawing app of your choice, where the app is running in black and white, then feeding the laptop's video output into a simple switcher's luma keyer and overlaying that on live video.

There used to be a tool for college coaches to do Madden-type annotations in real time on playing video files, but it was highly customized, and I haven't heard anything more about that in many years.

IIRC, there's a PC Package called Fingerworks that does exactly this. Touchpad annotation over PowerPoint. Never used it so don't have an opinion about it. But maybe worth a look?

Not sure if any of these are what you require, but both are rather old (read: have not been updated) and freeware. Both seem to install and work on my Win7 64-bit laptop though -

1. VideoMage Producer - home page perpetually "under construction", but can be downloaded from -

2. The Overlay Maker - more for maps and still pix underneath I guess

Tanks for this and the other replies. I will do some experimenting and report back.

I think running screen capture software on the Tablet/pc might work although I'm not sure how camtasia or other software will deal with the full screen/screen show mode in PPT.

Anyone else have something simple they are using?

We've used Camtasia to record full HD screen capture, no problem.
