Perhaps this is a demographics thing?

Presumably the use of such tools results in youtube postings.

Perhaps there are youtube postings about using such tools, as well? 
Perhaps making possible a standalone demo for you?

Not sure of your audience, but dancing bear may be an issue here.
(If one is 'good' and 4 are not, it's not the tools' fault. i.e. "With 
practice you too can post quality results. It's easy, it's fun ...")

'course if you luck out and get quality results, so much the better.



Dancing Bear Syndrome is a term coined by Jared Spool and Alan Cooper 
(among others in the usability community). Someone says, "Look! A 
dancing bear!" And you are amazed! The bear is dancing! How cool is that?

Of course, bears don't dance well. It's just amazing that they dance 
at all. The novelty of it all is what catches our attention, not the 
quality of the dancing.
