It's pretty common to see video demos of online products zoom in close to the text (which is clearly vector), fly around the page, etc. How does one convert a web page to vector format for such a video?

"Web page to PDF" sites are a dime a dozen, but every one I looked at puts watermarks in the output PDF and paginates them. This isn't unusable per se, but it's a huge pain.

I also considered trying to figure out a way to get a super high-DPI, high-resolution raster screenshot, but none of the solutions I found online for this were acceptable for the kind of resolution I need.

There is practically no information on this online... how are people doing this? I'd really appreciate some advice. Thanks!

When I've done this, I've simply re-created the web page. The content is usually customized for the video, anyway, and the web graphics are almost never high-res.
