Capture Google Earth flights for free!

You can use CaptureWizPro to record Google Earth point-to-point "flights" (letting GE choose the exact flight path) or manually controlled flights (using the GE joystick control).  

Use these settings for smooth running captures with good resolution:
Windows display settings: Screen resolution - 800x600, 16-bit High Color (Google Earth will protest such a low resolution settings but don't worry)
Google Earth: (tools/options menu) Color - High 16-bit; Icon size - small; Fly-to speed - .0650 or .0500; Primary 3D font size between 72 (whole-earth views) and 18 (maximum zoom-in views).
CaptureWizePro: Frames per second - 20; Use a selection area of roughly 640 x 480 pixels (within the 800x600 screen).
Before flying, I suggest tilting the "My Places" destinations by using the GE "snapshot view" option. This makes for much more interesting fly-to paths and angles.  

Using the above settings, I typically achieved about 12 to 15 frames per second.

Here're examples I created to train our volunteer expedition teams for their visit to the remote islands of Vanuatu, where they'll be providing medical, educational and technical assistance.
