I use Techsmith Snagit to capture the video - https://www.techsmith.com/snagit.html

And Serif Movie Plus 6 to edit and convert to Youtube format - http://www.serif.com/movieplus/

For animation obviously I use AnimationLab,   

For screen capture movies and frame editing I use BB flashback (from blueberry software),   

For sending to you-tube I use Serif MoviePlus x6, one thing to note though is that MoviePlus x6 is the final version, it will not be updated anymore as Serif has ceased production of it, so if someone brought out a new movie format it would never be supported, but I expect it to work fine with you-tube for years to come. and I find it a nice program to use.

According to the link, MoviePlus has been discontinued.

The producers of PowerDirector currently have a 70% off sale on their Ultimate package (which includes AudioDirector and their screen capture utility (forget the name).  Current version is 15.


or find it on eBay (you can also look for version 14 to save money).

Please note that there are different packages of applications ranging from US$60 to US$160.  Pick the one that will meet your needs and then look for the best price.
