I am using one video card, an older one as well (NVIDIA GeForce GT 630). The two 24" monitors are both plugged into the same card (both via DisplayPort). They have independent displays -- it's set to Extend but of course it's not as if the system doesn't know how to select "full Screen" on either monitor (just about all programs know how to distinguish the separate monitors).
Camtasia Studio is a comprehensive program for creating instructional or other videos using screen capture. The interface is accessible to all users at all levels, from novice on up, and the finished product you can create with this app will have a truly professional feel. You can test out Camtasia Studio for free for 30 days. After that the full purchase price is $299.
