I have a client who wants me to make a film of there new software in action, on screen films like Adobe do, so you can learn the software by watching Quicktime films of the on screen actions.

Now I know I can do this with Mac software programmes recording the screen, but is there any way I can link up there monitor output so that it shows on my Mac screen so that I can capture there software in action?

    If they are running Windows XP Professional, you could use Microoft's Remote Desktop Connection.

    If they are using other versions of Windows then you could use VNC.

    Having said that you would be better off buying a specific application for this purpose and running it on the PC platform.

    I use Macromedia Captivate.

    Wink does something similar and is freeware.

    You can either use Remote Desktop as suggested, or run the application in Virtual PC. I have used SnapzPro to capture a PC program running under Virtual PC. The problem is that both methods can have slow screen refresh rates depending on how fast your configuration is. If you can get your hands on an actual PC, that would be the best way.
