    I got adsense sites which I project to give me five figures a month half a year from now. The traffic is there but I want people to actually benefit from these sites and not just read a bunch of text and then move on. I want them to learn from a video and actually get an idea where to go from there.

    In order for this to happen, I need to put up videos which are really helpful. I have the clips to mix up and I have the idea on how to make them. My question is, what software is really optimized to get the job done? I have no idea so far on what to do... I actually am using Camtasia Studio. Is this bad? I have no idea what to do with it due to the lack of features. Anyone can suggest a better software?

    For quality video production, try Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere. It takes time to learn the right features though.

    As for me I only use camtasia for screen recording.

    For simple slideshow-based videos, I use Stupeflix. Animoto and Flixtime works great as well.

    Camtasia is good for everything. Even for simple to med video creation, if you look at it as it deserved.

    I recommend Adobe Premiere, hands down. IMO - better than Vegas.

    Well, I actually looked at it and it doesn't have text insertion, transition effects and stuff. Or I might be wrong.

    There are mixed reviews about them and since I would probably need to learn both of them from scratch, I would prefer Vegas since it sounds cooler :)

    You can use callouts for text insertion, just make the bubbles transparent and text opaque. There's plenty of transition effects for a lifetime.

    I recommend PowerDirector Easy to use and the results are strong, If you are not familiar with editing software, search Youtube for tutorials.

    Adobe Premiere, hands down. My friends who went to film school use it, I use it, professional editors use it, etc. If you don't own a mac, get it. It takes a bit to learn, but not too long (a couple days for mid-quality videos), and the features are just awesome.

    Abode definitely. As other users have pointed out, it's what the pros use. However, I found an excellent (free) alternative in VideoPad. Available here: http://www.nchsoftware.com/videopad/index.html

    The free trial last for quite a while and you can just uninstall and re-install for a new trial after working with it for a while. I eventually just bought it because I liked it so much.

    You might want to look into it before shell out big bucks for Adobe right away.
