I want to create a screen captured audio (microphone) - video presentation of my software. So i'm looking for best screencasting softwares out there which should allow me to edit recorded audio and video as well as adjust audio.. fast-forward specific portion of video.. zoom in and out specific portions in real-time without loosing quality as well as few cool effects on software window. Please check following 3 videos :

From those videos, i'm looking for following features :

  • I would like to have text typing effect.
  • The browser window is tilted a little when typing to give really cool 3d like effect.
  • Zooming of specific potions really look cool in real-time without loosing any graphic quality.

Please suggest me softwares and tools i can use to create similar video presentation. It doesn't matter even if the software and tools are commercial/paid products.

It's not just one software, but using several to get the effect you want. Look into--

  • good video editing software (camtasia, kdenlive on linux)
  • prezi
  • blender or 3d animation software
  • inkscape or gimp

*these are mostly Free & open source software (FOSS) as I use them myself.

Thank you very much for your reply.. I did check all of those... but it seems like a way too much work in there if i choose to go that way. .. do you know by any chance if adobe captivate could help me to product that kinda quality software simulation??? – Aditya Hajare Jul 5 '11 at 4:36
blender indeed comes with a steep learning curve. i'm only skimming the surface with it. i run linux on my pc--i don't know if adobe captivate can handle such projects. – Jim Syyap Jul 5 '11 at 7:13
