I am brand new to Premiere I just downloaded the evaluation copy of Pro CS4. My specific needs are:
The ultimate solution would be:
The ideal output would have the video of the presenter on one side at roughly 1/4 or 1/5 of the screen, and the desktop capture filling the rest (they would not overlap). So, my questions:
You need a VIDEO camera for that, not a keyboard.
Your best bet would be to invest in Camtasia and a webcam. Use the 30 day trail version before you you buy it.
Adobe does have a screen capture program but I forget what it is called.
Adobe's program is Captivate.
Unfortunately, it's output does not seem to work as perfectly in PrPro, as one would hope/think. Camtasia footage can present some issues too, but Jeff Bellune has posted some guidelines on working with the TechSmith CODEC's in PrPro.
