  2. Allow webcam size and position changes during edits

    Allow the webcan inset size and position to be changed through an edit action so it is different in different segments of the recording. For example, I might want to start and finish with the webcam full screen and reduce it in size during other parts of the recording. Depending on the material, I might want the image in a different place during some parts of the recording.

    I can achieve the desired result now by recording each segment with a different webcam size or position separately and then splicing them together (Pro) but it would be easier and more…

  3. convert script file to captions file

    After recording with a script file it could be good to be able to convert it to a captions file.
    This way it wouldn't have to be re-entered when we want to have additional captions

  4. Capture video on the secondary monitor in a dual monitor system.

    For us professional web presenters your product is AWESOME! (Just bought pro today.) Problem is we need the primary monitor NOT visible to the audience so we can toggle between applications and programs when we're presenting. Please, Please, Please move this capability up the development list! Thanks.

  6. A better way to read scripts...

    I am needing to overdub recordings. It is cumbersome to do so from a script because you don't allow the window to be sized allowing me to see the entire script for reading. Yes, I know I can scroll. Would be nice if I could get this text out of SOM for reading / sharing with other voice overs etc. Perhaps export script to clipboard?

    Would still love to see a keyboard shortcut for advance to next section for recording scripts, I hate having to remember my mouse position and ensure mac has the "active window" look, as when you…

  9. Easier access to tutorials

    I'd like to see a link on the homepage that would bring us to a page listing all tutorial videos.

    I would like to be able to use another drive when recording my videos so it doesn't bog down my computer.

  12. Ability to import mp4 and .mov files

    How much better it would be to have an option to import other standard video files than just .som files.
    Surely this would not be a difficult task and would add IMMENSE value to Pro users. I'd be happy to pay extra for this feature,..you could at least double the annual fee and I would gleefully pay it ;-)

    I love S-O-M... so simple to use and a great alternative to other options.

  14. Keyboard commands

    I think that screencast-o-matic should have commands on the keyboard that can be used any time. For example:
    alt+P=pause recording
    alt+S=stop recording
    alt+C=cancel recording
    and so-forth

  15. Add a memory tracker/estimated time left for recording

    It would be good to know beforehand how much recording time I have left so I know whether to clear space before I begin.
