Please check out this part of the manual on the recording options in X-Plane. For what you're describing it sounds like using the built-in replay will be your best bet. Perform your flight/landing/etc then go to the aircraft menu and choose "save replay." Then you can use "load replay" to go back to it and play it within X-Plane like a movie. The nice part is you can change your view and move the camera around to see it from different angles when you use this option. A movie recording just captures exactly what the view saw during recording. The only problem is the replay format is very unstable in v10 and even updating versions can break your ability to view older saved replays.
