When using the Screen Capture/Record Video which records an .avi file of your workspace, is there a way to show your tool bars or tabs in the videos?

I make the window smaller (restore down, not maximized)

I'm so sorry, I don't think I use the same recording device as you. I use a 3rd party recorder to which you can specify the size of the screen.

thats alright. There is one built into SW that I have been using but i just recently found it. Ive looked through the options for the system and couldnt find anything for screen capture settings.

Windows Media Encoder v9 lets you do it and for free. If you wanna spend money then Camtasia is the best out.

You have a lot of empty space left and right of your image. I would Restore Down the graphics window fairly small and make sure your image fills up the available space.
I haven't checked in SWx, but in Inventor there is also an option to save out as individual slides. I then combine some of those slides in a free GIF Animator software. Surprisingly few slides can be used to create a nice GIF Animation. I would probably use 4 slides for the avi animation you linked.

i tried resizing the window with no change. I can specify the screen size if i use the photoworks render engine but every time i move the model it "renders" so its not real efficient. I can specify the compression software i want to use, quality and frames per second. the one i posted above i think were 7.5 frames/sec. I dont really have any need for this type of thing but i figure its a nice tool(if the video showed the tool bars) to use as a teaching aid for when users ask questions or have questions.

Camtasia Studio is great for that.
