I suggest you ...

Give users the option of turning on and off the webcam at their lessure.

Not every recording required video throughout its duration, for example, I would like to use the webcam at the introduction and conclusion stages of the screencast and not in the body (middle). I cannot manipulate the webcam once it is turned on! WHY?

        I do not see this toggle feature from big webcam, I want to be able to switch from all 3 modes when doing a video. this is very annoying to have to splice all the videos together, really messes up flow and adds more work. I mean at least a hot key would be better than nothing.

        We recently added a way to do this.

        If you pause the recorder you can now turn on/off the webcam then unpause and continue.

        You can also use the "Hide Webcam" tool to remove the webcam from certain parts after recording when needed.

        VERY important feature! unfortunately I'm looking for an alternative software with this feature that is very important to us.

        Please implement this little but important feature.
