      • Solid fill circle around mouse cursor instead of outline

        I'm not fond of the circle around the mouse cursor. It would be great to have a solid fill circle instead of the circle outline that is currently available.

        • change application icon

          I'm color blind. My current customer has us using Windows 7. The circle icon is very difficult to see on the task bar because the colors/contrast are too similar. Please change the default icon, or offer a couple others to choose from with higher contrast.

          • Add Overlay Video

            Add an overlay video. Just like add an overlay image except it allows you to overlay a video file.

            • Add function to manually extend max time once the set limit has been reached.

              Please add functionality to manually extend max time once the set limit has been reached. If my 65 minute setting is not enough I'm not able to add recording time ad hoc. I often miss out on the ending of live presentations...

                • overlay with animated GIF or flash banner / logo (not only static image)

                  Hi,
                  I will be helpful, if a new feature of overlay with animated flash or GIF file can be added in the software.
                  Because we can not add our animated logo (3D) in our movie.

                  Thanks and kind Regards

                      • Ability to Import .MOV Files

                        You guys added support for .MP4 videos, I would LOVE it if you'd add support for .MOV files, it's one of the most common file types, please!!!!!

                          A .mov file should work with the import but you have to append a “.mp4” extension. We’ll update in the future so this works without forcing the mp4 extension.

                          • Have a global setting to turn Normalize for audio narration on or off.

                            Normalize produces odd-sounding narration for me. I'd prefer it be selectable as on/off in a global setting for all recordings. That way people who like it can set it on. If you don't, you can turn it off. Right now I have to turn it off for each recording.

                              2 ideas: allow for effect (overlay, etc.) fade-in times to be adjusted, and allow for segments of audio to be uploaded and arranged, rather than a single file. This would allow more control when working with voice overs

                              • Recognize a DSLR camera as an alternate webcam source.

                                I want to connect my Canon EOS 6D with USB to my laptop and use it as the primary webcam. The software currently does not recognize the camera as an alternate webcam source. This would provide a means for users to improve their level of video quality using different cameras and lens combinations.

                                    • allow for looping recording with a "save this bit" feature.

                                      It would make this useful when I'm doing QA work. Configure: 1 minute chunks, keep the last 5 minutes. Record. Recording auto-throws-away stuff after 5 minutes. When something "interesting" happens, I can pause, edit -> "freeze" sections of video, export little sections. At end of recording, something with "here's the video" and "here are the time markers of things" (clip start, or text) -- make it easier to find the bit that you need to watch when consuming a bug.

                                      I've done a look around for what software QA folks use, and the closest is blueberry flashback, and the interface…

                                      • be able to save the audio in MP3 format seperate from video

                                        After recording, let's say a webinar, it would be nice to download and save the audio portion only in MP3 format. This would enable users that don't need to see the video to download the MP3 and listen or their Iphones or other devices, in order to learn new processes or procedures

                                        • Allow for larger sized text in Scripts
