Is it inertia? I've used Camtasia for years, always liked it, always appreciated the updates and always felt this was one piece of software that really DID imporve my product. Don't burst my bubble please - I don't want to spend extra money or learn another program right now!

Picking up this thread...

At my new job, I have been tasked with evaluating tools to create 30-second
videos without audio that illustrate common tasks. Camtasia is the
incumbent, competing against Captivate and a tool called ViewletBuilder.
The latter has features and abilities similar to Camtasia, with a somewhat
finnicky slide-based interface. Its one advantage seems to be some built-in
survey and rating tools. I've found Captivate the easiest to use. As Robert
mentioned, the ability to animate cursor movements rather than having to
get them right in real time is a huge advantage. ViewletBuilder also has
this ability, but it's less intuitive.

I'm going to recommend Captivate, though I have a feeling the inertia of
Camtasia might win the day.
