    • Improved contact management, video email and viewership analytics features

      -Improved viewership analytics
      -In-app contact and email management with 'reply to' address set to my email
      -Auto & manually generated thumbnails inserted within video email feature. Open rates improve when a thumbnail with the 'play' icon is within the email
      -BombBomb is a system I've also been testing but I much prefer the screencast and other features within Screencast-o-matic

      • Allow video playback with screen annotations!

        Allow videos to play while annotations remain!

        I use screencast-o-matic to record video analysis for my athletes. I would LOVE to be able to draw on the screen and still have videos play in the background. Right now as soon as I start annotating, the recording is frozen and I have to delete the drawings/annotations in order to get the video I'm reviewing to play again.

          • Rotating Images

            It would be awesome to be able to rotate images that I've inserted so that they are positioned at an angle.

                  • Display keystrokes like CTRL + Z

                    I would be happy if the recorder could record keystrokes as well and display it on the screen (bottom right probably). For example CTRL + C and CTRL + V. For tutorial videos this would be quite useful.

                    • Mouse Pointer clicks not highlighted

                      Can we have this functionality checked and made to work again please?
                      No matter how I set the "left click" options for the mouse only the yellow circle is shown and no clicks.

                      Very frustrating!

                        • Time lapse function

                          Time lapse function. I would love to be able to record my screen throughout the workday in a "time lapse" fashion. Now, this can be achieved by recording all day, then use editing program to edit the video down to smaller size, but it would be cool if SOM had a pre-programmed option that you take a few frames, then pause & start again after a while for a few more frames. The resulting video would be comparatively small & I'd have a record of what I did that day.

                            • Mirror published video horizontally for Light Board

                              Wanting to use SOM with my lightboard teaching device. Need the video to be published in mirror mode horizontally. Google light board. Allow teacher to stand behind glass and write on it while being filmed. Currently published work is reversed due to optics.

                              Can SOM do this now? Can you make it happen?

                                  you should make it so two videos in the same recording can play at the same time so one video can be playing while in the background another one is playing and you should be able to set which ones can be seen so you can just hear its audio

                                  • Allow for Recording in Time-lapse Mode

                                    When I use Corel Painter or Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator I would like to record the screen in a time lapse mode. You know taking a picture every 1/2 second or 1 second (or predetermined amount of time). This would be similar to using an iPod or Camera in this mode while a person draws their images. The space taken up by many still pictures should also be minimal. This could also be used by those with mobile Web Cams when they do stop motion animation. It would open up another market for ScreenCast-o-Matic!

                                    • Allow Renaming of the Layers and Image Overlays

                                      I recorded a training video a couple of months ago. Getting back to editing it and some on screen tabs and links are now different. I am using image overlays to cover up the change. However, whenever I get to drop down menus I have 3 similar image overlays to keep the older features covered up and want to keep track of which image overlay is what, by naming them. Then their names could show up on the screen instead of just the word image, and I would know which one I need to click on and manipulate it.

                                      • User-defined recording sizes

                                        SOM has 720 & 480 as default recording sizes which work in most cases. Would like a user-defined option to add a custom size.

                                        For example, when creating a gif for a Slack channel, the ideal size is 400×225. Would be nice if SOM would remember those dimensions for me.

                                        • PIP for scripted recordings

                                          I would like the ability to import another video or clip for a picture in picture when creating a scripted recording.
