I just got a new computer and had to download Snagit again. I used to be able to create a video tutorial of my screen but I am now getting an error about my webcam. Does snagit need to use my webcam just record my screen?

No, there is nothing about the webcam being required to record the screen. I believe it's optional though. 

Does the error appear when SnagIt starts up before you use it or does it appear after you command it to record video?

As @Rick said you shouldn't need the camera on to record the screen.

You might try installing again and see if if that might fix it.
