I've got a couple of large files 2 - 3GB each which were of a training course where the instructor used Screenflow on the Mac to record all his keypresses.

I'm currently on a PC..

Problem: how to convert from .screenflow (and associated .scc files) to AVI or something a PC can play?

Problem2: If I borrow a Mac can I d/load (which I think was the package) and convert the files?

I think scc is a proprietary format. I wasn't able to open it using VLC.

ScreenFlow can export to h.264 and even to WMV if you have the Flip4Mac components. It offers several different presents for this:

You can also export to flash (.f4v) and directly to YouTube.

According to the web site, you have some trial restrictions:

Your exported QuickTime movies will be watermarked but the application will be fully functional.

If you can live with that, you can borrow a Mac and convert there.

Thanks very much Daniel - trying that today and I'll post back results! – Dave Mateer Jan 12 '11 at 23:28
Needs a newish version of OSX.. trying again soon on another Mac! – Dave Mateer Jan 15 '11 at 20:29
I found that the watermark is really quite big... but ok. Another gotcha was that the Mac could read fine off an NTFS disk, but wouldn't write. So wrote to desktop, then to a usb key :-) – Dave Mateer Feb 1 '11 at 21:40
