  1. Create Redact Tool

    Similar to the draw & zoom tool, it would be very extremely beneficial to create a redaction tool to Redact/Blur sensitive data while recording.

      • Automatic/artificial voice narration, build in voice to text function

        I would like to use an automatic voice narration option - some tool build in the Pro version that would hide an accent and voice tone (timbre).

        When use another tool - don't work very good, voice need to be upload after the video is created and that screw up all thing. Is there any better option for that?

          • 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.

            • Add Chroma Key Support for Intel Realsense Cameras

              Given that this software picked up on the Intel Realsense Camera's Depth Perception piece i suggest adding in Chroma/Ultra Key so if someone needs to just show themselves and not the background and if they have an intel realsense camera or it's respective derivatives they could have that option of immersive video

              • Allow sorting of uploaded videos in the Queue (click and drag)

                I want to batch upload videos, they are processing in the background, however there are times i want to record videos whilst this is happening and would like those videos to be uploaded first, so i think it would be great to sort the upload queue.

                Hope others feel this is valuable also

                • a grid for the editor for easy placement of overlays.

                  What I would like to see included in the editor is a grid , for easy placement of overlays (text images etc). Maybe even a "snap to grid" option. Could also be useful in animating objects. This software just keeps getting better.

                    • 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.

                      • Save settings for frequently added music

                        It would be great to save the settings (fade in, ducking etc) for frequently added music.

                        For example, I add a small section of music at the start of every video I make. Every time I add the music, I need to turn off fade in/out, looping and ducking. Sometimes the fade in box freezes for me too.

                        It'd be good to have the settings saved for that music, so when it is added it's ready to go.

                        • Copy and Paste Overlay

                          I want to be able to overlay a branding image at the beginning of my video and at the end. I want the image to be in the exact spot.

                          A: It would be nice to be able to copy the overlay from one part of the video to another so they are in the same spot but appear at different parts of the video.

                          B: It would be nice to copy the overlays from one video to a different video. So my branding is consistent from video to video.

                          C: Maybe a measuring device like guides to assure correct…

                          • Video Publish Editor

                            Another higher layer of editing where you can paste together smaller sections of recordings. I am documenting the use of a tool where many pieces of the video could be re-used. I would like to build up some common pieces and then put them all together. It would also be nice to be able to choose which sections to publish so you can create a shorter version of a long video.

                                • 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 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...
