Did you know that with Quicktime's latest version you can record directly into Quicktime?  It's a great little tool if you need to record something quickly, and not have to run it through Final Cut Pro or other editing application and make a Quicktime file.  It's also a great tool to use for voiceovers.  You can attach your video camera to your computer or use the iSight right on your Mac. 

Go to the Quicktime Menu to File > New Movie Recording
