Description: Records your game using a series of screenshots. Requires Game Maker Pro 7.0 or later.
How to use: First, open the object that will be doing the recording. In its Game Start event, drag in the Init function. In its Step event, add the Record function, entering a screenshot name (ss, screenshot, -game's title- screenshot, etc). Then choose a key to toggle the recording (spacebar, Enter, F12, etc.), and add the Toggle function. Next, save the executable to a place to keep the screenshots, as this will be the working directory. I would recommend a different folder instead of, for example Desktop or My Documents. After you run your game and record, my recorder will create a series of screenshots in the game's directory. The files are called -your chosen name--your chosen name-2.bmp, -your chosen name-3.bmp, and so on. After running the game, right-click in the directory, click Arrange Icons By, and click Modified. You can now edit the video by deleting and adding certain files. Now open your video editor (think Microsoft Movie Maker, Apple iMovie, etc.) and import those files in order. Also import the sounds from your game that were used when recording, including music. Add those in at the right times. Now export the video and you're done! That's it! (I say that almost 200 words later.)

You know Fraps/HyperCam? Apart from this there already exists 2 Extensions to record AVI. One of that is written by me ("AppCam"), but paused after first Alpha. The other one is "GMCam " i think. Currently no one supports Sound, but recording with Windows Recorder makes more sense than "simulate" the hole sound scenery.

Seriously. I just made this for me because I felt like it, and put it here for the same reason. There are some advantages to this, though. It keeps every pixel on the screen the same, allows you to edit frame by frame, allows lots of flexibility of placing sound, and it's free. Really, the only downsides are the lag while recording, the time required, and the file size.
Serious? Taking hundred/thousands of Screenshots (BMP?!) and manually adding Sound?

I don't think it makes sense to create the Movie Frame by Frame(and manually reconstructing the sound scenery), only if you want to create series of Images for a GIF.?
No defame, but GMCam and AppCam are free too, don't lag and recording AVI Files.
