    Ok for product reviews im leaning toward screen capturing on camtasia because i read that slide shows like animoto and other software s like it are less successful at turning sales? Im also considering whiteboard type videos. My question is are screen capture type videos effective compared to other techinques? I choose it cause i dnt want to show my face at all. Or are they're any other options im missing? What are ur experiences using screen capture to promote sales? Or whiteboards?

    No thread bumping, please.

    And to answer your question, it depends on how creative you
    are with the software. I have seen slideshow videos that are
    better than "over-the-shoulder" Camtasia videos and visa-versa.
    It depends on how you "pace" your video and what the content
    of that video is, and if you are using good persuasion skills,
    such as Reciprocity, Scarcity, etc.

    camtasia is still a good one. best way you could learn how to use it is to watch youtube video.

    y don't u do both? i make slideshow videos when i want to emphasize on the quantity of videos to be produced, it kind of takes less time. there are many awesome after effects templates for making slideshow type videos. i suggest u should try them before going to any conclusion :)
    camtasia type videos convert quite well, better than slideshows; but it depends on what u r recording :)
