Use a different approach

Professional videographers don't go down the rabbit hole you're going down. They use manual focus, multiple camera angles, lighting designed for video, etc.

If you're using ISO 3200 and f/2.8 I'll bet you need more light. So get more light.

Try setting up two cameras - one at macro range for the product and the other for the demo. You could get a more professional looking video with a mid-range camera and a cellphone - with two camera angles - than trying to get one expensive camera do it all in one shot.
