You can use the Movie Maker feature of Google Earth to record 3D viewer imagery and save the recording as a movie file. You can either set the recorder to record your interactions with the 3D viewer in real-time, or you can set up a tour and record the entire tour without interruption.
Once you finish recording and have saved your file, you are free to make personal use of it. For instance, you might want to create a movie of your property to present to clients or at trade shows where visitors can see satellite views of your property without having to use Google Earth. However please note that you may not distribute movies publicly in Television or Film without written permission from Google.
- Windows Media Video (WMV) - (Windows and Linux only) This output file format is compressed and optimized for presentations. These WMV files can be further configured for the best type of delivery, such as via a T1 web connection or over a 56K modem connection.
- Audio Video Interleave (AVI) - (Windows and Linux only) Movies created in AVI format are uncompressed and as a result, generate extremely large files, making it almost impossible for a standard movie player to play back the recording. This is useful only if you want to edit the movie clips using a movie editing software.
- Image Stream (JPG) - Movies can be captured as images in variable or fixed length. This format is useful if you want to control the speed artificially and edit each screenshot (frame by frame).
- QuickTime - (Mac only) Movies can be captured in Apple QuickTime .mov format.
