Camtasia Studio 3

The software started out as a screen capture software but soon grew into a full-fledged utility that can give Macromedia Captivate a run for its money at half the price! It lets you create screen recordings for demos or tutorial purposes, and save them in Flash, AVI and other video formats. It even allows you to edit/fine tune your recordings. In the new picture you even have picture-in-picture as well as a unique quizzing feature which will make your presentations/tutorial more interactive than
before. It even integrates into MS PowerPoint so you can launch capturing your voice/video and your presentation at the same time. 

Starting the software brings you the default wizard which can be used for creating/opening projects by screen capture or by importing media files You select from amongst the three
recording options of whether you want to record the entire screen, a particular area or a specific window
On the recorder window, set recording options from the menu above. During recording, the window is minimized Once recording is done, the software plays it. Saving it will automatically get you into the editing mode
You can import video, audio and image files. Just drag them on the video in the timeline below. You can even set where in time the audio plays You can add a video of you talking while you make the presentations using a Web cam. Click on the Picture-in-Picture link on the left and start recording
Flash Quiz option lets you create simple Flash-based quizzes, which will make the whole experience a lot better You can create menus for your CDs using the wizard. This way during a tutorial you can group chapters and content 
You can choose to save your demo/presentation in multiple movie formats such as AVI, SWF and WMV This window shows when you click on ‘Help me choose file formats’ as in step 9, to help you choose the right one
