Sony Vegas Pro or Adobe After Effects
The first 2 programs are used for audio and video recording, fraps is good at recording games and keeping framerate stable, however file sizes of the recorded footage are big. So be prepared to delete them.
2nd one is Camtasia recorder. This recording software is not really made for games and causes the game footage to seem choppy with framerate. Though you can save the recording file in any file you want, it also has screen resolution options to whatever you want.
Both are fine in terms of recording audio and quality. Fraps is more recommended for recording games and Camtasia is recommended for recording other things.
Sony Vegas Pro - A usual editing software used by gameplay commentators, montage creators, and weird people. Sony Vegas is a really clean editing software with wide varity to improve clips and make things pretty. It's also really easy to use. They're many versions of Sony Vegas, basically if you get a version above 8.0, you should be fine.
Adobe After Effects - Known as "Hollywood's Best Friend". After Effects is used in a lot of movies in editing and improving terms. It can be used to create and animate, which is all fun to play around with. It's usually used as a color correction and special effects in hollywood, so if you want any nifty fireworks for your video, AAE is your guy.
Sony Vegas is used for editing (like fixing audio and cutting out parts of the clip that isnt needed). It is used by many video game commentators
Adobe After Effects is more of playing around and creating cool stuff. It drives people interested into motion graphics more then not, but its really good for color correction and special effects. If you're more interested into creating and making videos look pretty, this is worth trying out.
Non of these programs are free or cheap. But everyone except for coperations making a movie and my friend Braden, pirates them. If you dont have that much of a guilty conscience about it then you can get on with your youtube career.
Topic, People, and Form is all entirely up to you, but try to look for inspiration
