Fun with quirky video techniques

I've been playing with some different techniques to show how CoexLinks Fidelity works compared with how IBM Notes/Domino works, and decided to mix up the flowcharts and demo. It's been interesting and fun, but I realized I could use a GIF (albeit, a large GIF - sorry for the bandwidth) to show the technique without forcing anybody to watch a whole video. I reduced a few of the effects and shrank this to 640x360 to fit the blog and keep the size somewhat reasonable. The actual video is in HD and has music and a few more effects, but I haven't decided whether to load it as is (it is only 45 seconds long), or add another demo which uses the Message Store.

So, what do you think? Obviously, I'm hardly the first person to use animation and such with flowcharts and demos, but it is new to me and I learned a lot (some of which I'll probably share in a tutorial so others can use them. 

Of course, it you want to try CoexLinks Fidelity for yourself, we're not going to turn you away.

Really neat,

I could very much use that skill for my own videos. So how did you do all this?

Stephan - I am working on a video showing how to do the animated flow chart in Camtasia 8, as that is what I use. I'll try to provide some tips on what terms such as "transitions" and "visual properties" might translate to in other video editing software so you can use the same technique in those. Out of curiosity, what do you use?
