Those look like template based effects to me.
 Adobe's After Effects is probably the program used to created that imagery. Learning how to do that type of thing from scratch is not for the faint of heart.It involves Camera movements, 3D movement, multiple layers, a lot of lighting effects and the list just keeps on growing.

 Here is an unrelated After Effects project just to give you an idea.It's a template I downloaded.If you opened all the pre-comps, there's probably 150 to 200 video tracks dedicated to that 18 second video.

The images you referenced work differently but are pretty complex as well.
Here's a couple of example of After effects templates

After Effects and it's templates are difficult to work with as well.

 It's better to crawl before you walk in most cases. There are relatively inexpensive programs that offer templates for animating images.They won't look as nice as the ones you referenced.But that's a whole different league of editing.
You would have to invest countless hours wrapping your head around that level of editing.There's no quick lessons for it. No easy way to get there.
Camtasia can't even begin to edit at that level. As soon as you move an image back into 3D space. Then, start moving sideways through that space, things go wrong. Distortions, anomalies, etc. Anyway,I would look for something template driven and simple to use, Google it. Read users reviews.I love to hear back from you when you decide what to do.

Hi Karen

In the event you are talking more about the image that sort of "floats" in and moves around, this should be pretty easy to animate using just Camtasia.

Here is a way I did it that I uploaded to YouTube.

Maybe it will help?



Cheers... Rick :)

Did you even look at the You Tube video Karen pointed out Rick?

Can you make this easily  in Camtasia?



Do complex Color Shifts ?


I'm just saying, shes eyeballing high end video effects. Reflections, Lighting, Gradient Opacity, etc.
Camtasia isn't there.

I suppose only Karen can answer that question. LOL

What I saw was mention of an image changing about every 20 seconds or so.

Cheers... Rick :)
