I'd like to make a couple videos for a new site. I have both camtasia and WMM. What size images should I use to make the best looking videos?

    The bigger the better. It actually depends on what details you show in videos and what you wanna do with the vids later. If you submit to Youtube it will resize and compress the video so it's better to give them a high resolution although it takes longer to process.

    I agree that the bigger the better. Just make sure that the screen resolution you record the video in is in the same ratio as the resolution of your final video file. This will help keep the images as clear as possible.

      Although no longer an issue, I set the resolution of my old 4:3 crt monitor, via the display control panel in Win7, to 1280x720 (720P HD) while doing Camtasia full screen captures. It looked really weird while I was doing the capture, but the resulting video looked exactly as I wanted it to.
