Stephanie I use to do create tutorials for a project so the following is just my experience and the scars on my fingertips to prove I learned it the hard way.
1. First off I would have kept it as an .AVI, many of the programs mentioned, with the exception of Wink, create in that format. It is the oldest video format on Windows and 9/10 times you can import it into whatever video editing system that you want. 2. Because you are recording from your computer screen and activity you really didn't need to use a high frame rate - it would have been better to use something between 3 fps to 12 fps. You are not recording humans but screen activity. It would have been smooth enough and your system wouldn't have been slowed. 3. No audio - good but you could have it you wanted to if you keep it mono at a low freq. rate. Hypercam has a good FAQ about this http://www.hypercam.com/hc/faqs.asp look for the section on Creating Professional Training Videos. Will you have to redo it? The short answer is "maybe". I hope not but if WME is not giving you what you want and it is due in 20 some hours, you might have to. Good luck.
