Where’s the killer screencast app for the Mac? 25 May 2006

It’s sorta surprising, but there’s no great screencast app for the Mac. Snapz Pro is about the best there is, and it’s not bad, but it’s… well… it feels like there should be something better. And it’s not a Universal app either so it doesn’t work on Intel (it doesn’t even work in Rosetta either).
Here’s what I’d like to see. Basic screen video capture with a few simple compression options, audio recording, caption/graphic overlay support, simple video editing (cut, duplicate, slow down, just the basics), and export to Quicktime or Flash. All wrapped up in a nice UI too, of course. The biggest downfall of the current options is editing — there’s no way to preview the screencast you just created, overlay some captions, intro and outro text, and cut out some of the dead video).
Can I get an amen? Better yet, can I get a product?
