How do we make our videos?

A frequent question I get asked is "How do you make your videos?"

Now seems like a good time to answer that because the software we use is now available for free download!

We record our powerpoint with Camstasia studio. This records both the powerpoint, and my microphone.
It can be downloaded for free here:

We then use Sony Vegas to match up the powerpoint with the camcorder video footage. In Vegas we render it as a PAL mpeg-2 and then we make it into a DVD with DVD architect.

I think that Vegas is much more intuitive and easier to use than Adobe Premier, so it is always my first choice for video editing.
As for DVD architect, I have never used any other software, so I don't really know how this compares with others.

Hope this helps,
