I figured this was the most appropriate place to ask this question. If not, mods feel free to move.

I'm planning on doing some video recording of my playing and was wondering the best way to go about it. I want to record with backing tracks and play through my PC and an amp sim. I'm guessing the best way to do it would be to bounce down my backing to a mp3 or wav, record the audio from the amp sim at the same time as recording the video. i have a digicam with firewire that i want to use for my capture device.

now the question is, what software to use for this? audio software is not a problem for me, but entering the visual realm... whole new story. i've been trying to find some info online but so far it has been pretty useless.

any suggestions?
