Co - I'm using a video capture tool that I wrote in C++.

There is no current capture/export feature in TOPO! yet. If I were them, I'd be working on it.

Bill,
I am sure that you have already heard this, but every one of them work for me no prob. I run winXPpro, and had no problems what so ever. This is an awesome idea, and will reall help people (myself) visualize the hike before hand, much different than a regular topo. Thanks agian!!

The fly-overs are just great. As a novice climber, I was particulalry interested in one for the Longs Peak Keyhole route (a 14er I have not yet tackled). The fly-over graphically shows what everyone says about that climb - it is a different beast entirely once you pass through the keyhole.

Thanks again, Bill. Your efforts are much appreciated.
