My Marketing department just asked me about the "best" way to incorporate
screen captures into a Flash presentation. They are having difficulty
displaying a clean capture after the image is resized.

Screenshots are bitmap images. Bitmap images are for practical purposes, impossible to resize without losing quality. (Some enlargements may be an exception.)

The format of the screenshot is immaterial for this problem, as is the tool used. The problem is simply a limitation of bitmap images.

The best way for your marketing people would be to take the snapshots in the size in which they are going to use it.
