I'm proficient in After Effects and Vegas Pro, but neither seem useable to create (that's create, not edit) slideshow-style videos. I'm using Vegas for the final composition of the project and the best idea I had was make the slides in openoffice presentation, record with Camtasia as I click through them, then import and edit the video file in Vegas.
There's not too much work with this method, but what I don't like about it is having to create a new video file each time a slideshow needs editing.
Does Vegas have a better option I'm not aware of? Do most IMers just Camtasia-up a slideshow? Other good ideas?
