Showing off great design and a superb user experience is essential when marketing any SaaS product. You can tell people what problem it solves and how it will change their life, but unless it also looks like something they’d love to use, your customer will lose interest.

The most common way to do this is to simply pull “screenshot video” captured directly from your computer. This is a “quick and dirty” viable solution, but what if you want to stand out from the masses and do something that highlights your product in a more creative way?
