Making Movie,
              Recording simulation output into a video
is trivial only when you have a powerful pc. Any third
party recording tool you use (like fraps) on the same
PC which is running the simulation will
_significantly_  alter the performance of the
similation (like frame rate etc). This is something
you dont what I guess.

Here's what I do:

 You need two PCs, one on which your simulation is
running and the other (with a video grabber card) for
recording. You must also have S-Video out in your
simulation PC. Connect the S-video out to the S-video
in of the second PC and record. The performace is very
good -> 640x480 25fps, you need a resonably good
grabber card. Later compress the way you want.
