    • Allow for sections of video recording to hide mouse cursor

      After making a scripted recording in your awesome v2.0.0 beta62 pro version, I would like to see a way to have some sections of my recording show the mouse cursor and some not. As far as I can tell, there's only a global setting for the entire video. It would be nice to have this as an effect like overlays and transitions, for showing the mouse or hiding the mouse on certain sections of the recording.

        • Give an option to remove the blue highlight for mouseclicks

          There seems to be no way to do this in version 2.0 which makes the app fairly useless to me since I use a tabet pen to annotate. Who wants to looks at blinking blue circles everytime a letter is formed? The yellow cursor highlight seems fine because I want to point at things in my screencasts, but the blue hightlight is ridiculously distracting.

          • Have This as an Application on Desktop.

            I Usually go to the site to start recording, but There should be an Application on your Desktop that has the Screen-O-Matic Logo on it.
            It wouldbe so much easier!

              • Change default recording path

                If this is not already a feature...

                Hi. I have a small SSD which runs the OS; Windows 7 and all my programmes. I also have other hard drives which contain all my other files such as media and games. By default, screencastomatic records to my C: drive (SSD) which quickly fills up whilst recording. Once I have finished recording I know how to publish the video file to another drive, however can I change the default recording path to avoid my SSD getting filed up? (I have a pro account)

                • More audio control for secondary MP3 track

                  I think it's nice that you can add background music to your narrated video. However, one feature that I've noticed other software has that SOM does not, is the ability to change the secondary (music) audio levels throughout the video. If I'm narrating something, I may want the music to fade in the beginning and fade out at the end while I'm still talking. And not even so much a "fade" feature, but actually being able to manipulate the levels at different points in the timeline. Just a thought.

                      • make a way to move, not copy, the screencasts to a channel

                        Hi!

                        I am using screencasts to provide feedback to my online students, therefore, privacy is very important. I would love it if I could make each student a channel, then move the video from the Uploads page to their channel. That way, the only way to see it is if you have access to the channel. That would make it so much easier! I could give the student the channel link with their password, then put all of their screencast videos in there. I would not have to add a password for every video I make for them.

                        It would…

                          If you create a locked channel then put a screencast in that channel then you won’t be able to view the screencast unless you access through the locked channel.

                            I'm recording and there is an hissy noise in the background. it would have been cool if there was a feature to remove that background ambient noise. It ruins my entire recording and it is irritating to my audience. Thanks

                              If at all possible, giving the closed caption option would be nice. Sometimes it helps to read it and sometimes it is just nice if the volume isn't working on the computer.

                                  It appears that you removed the microphone volume control in v2.0. True? If so, that's too bad. It's a really nice feature.

                                    • music fade out

                                      so far when i add music, it just drops off at the end of the video abruptly. the next feature that is a must is to be able to fade the music out at the end of the video so it feels better than just an abrupt drop off.

                                      • This is amazing!!! Maybe add scaling

                                        I'm on a university computer where I can't install any software and this is the only way for me to record my files without stealing a Admin password! Very easy to use interface, I love it. this is what students need!

                                        maybe have an option to scale the recording window to a set scale eg, 16:9 so you can increase the size whilst keeping it in scale for future editing

                                        • Make it Free Again!

                                          I used your app hours every day since I make video tutorial. Had to format my laptop, and when downloading version 2, I realized it is NOT FREE anymore. Make it free again and put your site's name on the bottom. Stop Being Greedy!
