  2. Completion of the Overlays screen (and some menu stuff too)

    I would really like optimization of the overlay feature in the editor. What I mean by that is allowing for video overlays, adding more adjustability for any overlays (except blurs) like rotation, ability to stretch the overlay, the ability to customize view stuff such as hue, saturation, brightness, contrast, exposure, etc. and finally for this bit, chroma key. You know, green screen, blue screen, CGI, movies... Yeah.
    Another thing is changing the menu a bit to make it more organized and easier to navigate. Having the overlays, but the blur is in a separate folder with other distortions such as…

  7. Optimizing the overlay's power

    Optimizing the "Overlay Edit" screen
    When I edit videos in the Screencastomatic video editor, I find it annoying to have to go and edit an entire image just to have it rotated a few degrees. If there was a rotation bar in the editor itself, making my cinematic scenes would be much easier.

  13. invalid default file naming

    change the default file naming to have no hash sigh in the name of the recoding. Reason: when the default saving location is changed to a server which doesnt allow a hash sign in the file name, the file cannot be uploaded until you changed the name to some valid value.
    e.g. I am working with OneDrive and the sync client doesnt upload files with hash signs in the filename.

  15. Sound of mouse click

    A way to pause without hearing the sound of the mouse/keyboard. This drives me insane on playback as I hear the click.

  17. Greater zooming of the timeline

    Allow me to zoom out the timeline of a video to whatever extent I need (currently its just two steps). This will help in precisely aligning various overlays and other effects.

  20. Toolbar below timeline

    I would LOVE to see a toolbar either between the timeline and the slider or below the slider. This would contain all the buttons that are now in the Tools popup menu. That menu could remain for those who prefer using it. The SOM workflow is wonderfully efficient already, but I think this would turbo charge my production! :) The icons are already there in the menu. The same icons could be used in the toolbar. Currently I count around 20, which should fit perfectly well in a toolbar.
