    I'm putting together my very first video, and I've got the clips lined up, the music and pretty much everything necessary to make a go of it. I was playing the music for the piece on WinAmp and had the visualization on for it, and thought some of the effects in the visual window were so cool, it would be nice to integrate some of those into the video, of course synced up to the song itself, interspersing the clips I'm preparing with short bursts of the visualization effects.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to capture something like that? It would require work on my part to sync them, but it might be a fun part of the project.

    I don't know if this is any kind of a copyright problem, because aren't most of those visualizations based on a mathematical formula and not on actual visuals? It would certainly be helpful to know the limitations and possibilities on this sort of thing.

    I don't know abut copyright issues on visualizations. As long as its for your personal use and don't plan on selling the videos you won't have any problems.

    As far as capturing the visualization yes you can. There are countless screen capture programs avaiable. Check the tools section on the left of the screen. They usually record in avi into divx or whatever codec you want. Some do full screen captures and a lot of them let you choose to capture a whole active window or you can select just the part of the screen you wish to record.

    Sorry I can't recommend any as I haven't used them in a long time and forgot the names of them.

    I've only really tried Camstudio, so that's the one I'd recommend. Others seem to recommend programs like Fraps.

    If you're concerned about whether or not you can use the Winamp visualizations in your video(s), I'd ask about it on the Winamp forums (on Winamp's site). Chances are it's probably as yoda313 mentioned - if it's for non-profit use, and you're not planning on using them for a public performance, they may not have a problem with it.
