I have previously used Audials 8 for my particular screen capture needs. They capture area averages just under 1280x720 and 1-3 hours long. With Audials set to capture type "screen" at 3fps (75% quality)/128bit audio the resultant video for a 3 hour WMV capture was usually 250Mb-320Mb. Anything less would produce intermittently illegible numbers on screen.
What I'm looking for now is to replace Audials with a free or low cost option. Hoping to stay with a versatile and ubiquitous format such as AVI, WMV, SWF, etc. The attached image should provide a good idea as to the video nature, no "action" scenes there but the number values are in continual change. After exhaustive testing of different codecs and capture options I found the aforementioned setting to be the best balance between legible screen characters and file size.
Any suggestions fitting my requirements would be appreciated. (Win7/Regor 245)

Thanks again Baldrick! You do deserve KUDOS as an active and helpful moderator, err, Super Moderator.
After test driving a fair number of the free apps available I believe I've come to the conclusion this is one software niche that doesn't yet have a full-featured user-friendly freeware/shareware alternative. Beginning to think I may go back to Audials (even with their quirks and not-so-great support).
