The place where I work is asking me to build a motion demo reel to showcase some of our recent work.

Unfortunately almost all of our work is interactive. The work has a lot of motion aspects but most of it is scripted animation, transitions, button effects, etc. We do have some broadcast and 3d work that I can simply cut together with some quick edits, but I'm trying to figure out how to showcase our interactive motion in a format that's a little cooler than a slide show of screen shots.

Anyone ever done this kind of thing before? Any good examples?

Could you not do a screen record to capture some interactive bits and the cut that together with pure animation, broadcast stuff and stills?

Is this for an online presentation or something DVD quality?

Yeah that's what I was thinking about doing.

I have the option to recreate a bunch of stuff in AE since we have all the psd's available but things change stylistically and content wise between design and production so it seems like it would be a lot of work to get everything to match up for 5 to 10 seconds of motion.

Its for web delivery so screen caps would be acceptable resolution. It might get laid to disc but it would probably be with some sort of built in player instead of a video DVD.

So second question... Favorite Screen Recording Software (either mac or pc)? I need something that will record complex flash movement in real time and it seems that the few I've tried bog down when motion occurs in the browser.

The most obvious choice would be camtasia, albeit it is $300.00
