Thanks for the info. I've used Audacity for a number of things over the last dozen years or so. It's great! Time to do a search for Win10 screen recorders. Audio is great, but only for those fluent in listening to a specific (English) dialect. Screen annotations are especially good. I wondered if you used a tablet. I'm developing a case of Wacom lust that's growing continually stronger!

Adobe Premiere  - only joking Wink  I use linux and ffmpeg from a bash script. Gives a lightly compresed file suitable for editing. For a Windows Demo, it is of a VirtualBox on the desktop.
ffmpeg -f x11grab -xerror -r 15 -s 1280x720 -i :0.0+144,144 -vcodec mpeg4 -b:v 1000k -q:v 5 -bt 256k -y `date +%s`.avi
Then editing in an old version of Avidemux.  Any commentary recorded with Audacity and added to the video. Final export in a more compressed xvid avi format (although most seem to play mp4 easily these days).

I am no artist but I pulled out my 14 year old Wacom tablet and the presets work great.

I use an ffmpeg bash script as well to screen record. I have 4 hotkeys to launch recording with or without audio, and to pause or stop recording. I record lossless, then encode after any cropping/editing that is needed.

I do my final encode with a Thunar action.
xfce4-terminal --tab --drop-down --title="Encoding Progress" -H -x ffmpeg -i %f -vcodec libx264 -preset slow -crf 18 -acodec libvorbis -qscale:a 5 -pix_fmt yuv420p  /home/akovia/Videos/Screencasts/Encoded/%n

Maybe some other Linux users might find these scripts useful. It was made for my own system, but should be easily modified for other systems. Fairly well commented.
