You could use one of those desktop recording programs. There should be a free one somewhere in the internet. As for game covers, just draw a box (Or get an image of a blank one), make the front and sides images and rotate/skew them to match the perspective.

Legally? Nope. You could ilegally download Photoshop but it's a heavy file.

For graphics? Well, GIMP is fairly powerful.

Since there are audio problems with my PC when recording videos for my games, I make my trailers as game projects instead... Here is one a bit old for my game project Eternal Chronos.

Ah, I always forget GIMP. There's also a 30 day trial for Photoshop on the official Adobe website and a 30 day trial for PaintTool SAI, another graphics program somewhere in the interwebs.

The last time I bought a Photoshop CD with Keygen,it had a Trojan Virus and infected my Panda Cloud Antivirus.When I scanned it with AVG,total of 204 viruses were found but this is going off-topic.

Get the cracked Photoshop CS4 at Pirate Bay. Usually it's safe.

AVG tells me that Pirate Bay has a threat level of 2 I guess...but I don't care Razz I downloaded my Model Packs for FPS Creator from Pirate Bay on my condemned net.Thanks for the idea though,I had forgotten Pirate Bay.

I take it Reisen made the title?
It looks great.
Also, for the trailer you COULD try Fraps, but it's kinda annoying...
