    • Live

      I am a YouTuber and this is a very good screen recorder for free, maybe make it where we can live stream on YouTube, and look at it this way, If you leave the water mark for non pro members you it could promote your app and more people start to use it. It's just an idea. Like I said I'm a YouTuber and I would really like to live stream without a captor card and an encorder.

      • Place audio and video into separate tracks so they can be edited independently.

        In scripted recordings, it sometimes becomes necessary to change where the audio begins in relation to what's happening in the video. Rather than needing to re-record the entire video and hope you get it right this time, it would be nice to simply move where the audio track begins. Separating the tracks would also allow more flexibility with video playback, such as speed and pause.

        • 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.

          • ADD MULTIPLE AUDIO FILES

            This is a great tool, but you really need to add the audio placement feature, and allow to import multiple audio files at the cursor point. Not having this feature totally limits the programs ability. Otherwise it is great. Also you should let people know they can't do that because I spent hours trying to figure it out.

              • Pinned Recordings

                I have brief intro and exit videos that I add to the beginning and end of a series of videos. Right now I use the search function to locate those when I insert them. It might be nice to be able to pin certain recordings so they appear at the top of the list. So you could pin/unpin videos to make them more easily accessible.

                      • Please add EQ editing

                        It would be fabulous to be able to add or remove Bass, Middle and Treble during the edit phase. Better still a 9 band graphic equaliser so I can tweak the audio of my USB microphone.

                            When recording with a webcam only, I'm limited to 720, but would love to capture in 1080 so that when I combine webcam video with screen capture, both will be in 1080.

                              Allow me to zoom out the timeline of a video to whatever extent I need (currently its just two steps). This will help in precisely aligning various overlays and other effects.

                                    • Toolbar below timeline

                                      I would LOVE to see a toolbar either between the timeline and the slider or below the slider. This would contain all the buttons that are now in the Tools popup menu. That menu could remain for those who prefer using it. The SOM workflow is wonderfully efficient already, but I think this would turbo charge my production! :) The icons are already there in the menu. The same icons could be used in the toolbar. Currently I count around 20, which should fit perfectly well in a toolbar.

                                        • Up the Frame Rate and maybe 1080HD

                                          I'm not asking for 60 frame rates per second, but maybe up it to 45 or 50. When I'm recording the game I'm playing my computer is running smoothly, but after I finish recording the frame rate cuts a little bit. I know it could be hard because you guys work on so many updates, but I hope that you guys can fix this, thanks for being so amazing Screencast-O-Matic.com
