I've played with a bunch of tools on the Mac. I use iShowU to make my screencasts, edit them in Quicktime and then will use VisualHub to translate from one format to another. That is if iShowU or Quicktime won't give me the format I want to end up with. I like iShowU because you can control lots of settings and there are some standard presets to help beginners.
If I was pickier I'd probably want something more high-end where I could lay a video and audio track seperately, but right now this works.
