  2. Ability to Import .MOV Files

    You guys added support for .MP4 videos, I would LOVE it if you'd add support for .MOV files, it's one of the most common file types, please!!!!!

    A .mov file should work with the import but you have to append a “.mp4” extension. We’ll update in the future so this works without forcing the mp4 extension.

  3. Make a full screen Webcam option to enable toggling between slide presentation and camera

  4. Have a global setting to turn Normalize for audio narration on or off.

    Normalize produces odd-sounding narration for me. I'd prefer it be selectable as on/off in a global setting for all recordings. That way people who like it can set it on. If you don't, you can turn it off. Right now I have to turn it off for each recording.

  5. Effect transitions and Segmented Audio Import

    2 ideas: allow for effect (overlay, etc.) fade-in times to be adjusted, and allow for segments of audio to be uploaded and arranged, rather than a single file. This would allow more control when working with voice overs

  6. Recognize a DSLR camera as an alternate webcam source.

    I want to connect my Canon EOS 6D with USB to my laptop and use it as the primary webcam. The software currently does not recognize the camera as an alternate webcam source. This would provide a means for users to improve their level of video quality using different cameras and lens combinations.

  7. resize & crop as another tool

    I would suggest it would be another tool and the results would show on the timeline, just like the other tools.

  9. allow for looping recording with a "save this bit" feature.

    It would make this useful when I'm doing QA work. Configure: 1 minute chunks, keep the last 5 minutes. Record. Recording auto-throws-away stuff after 5 minutes. When something "interesting" happens, I can pause, edit -> "freeze" sections of video, export little sections. At end of recording, something with "here's the video" and "here are the time markers of things" (clip start, or text) -- make it easier to find the bit that you need to watch when consuming a bug.

    I've done a look around for what software QA folks use, and the closest is blueberry flashback, and the interface…

  10. be able to save the audio in MP3 format seperate from video

    After recording, let's say a webinar, it would be nice to download and save the audio portion only in MP3 format. This would enable users that don't need to see the video to download the MP3 and listen or their Iphones or other devices, in order to learn new processes or procedures

  13. mute/unmute microphone during recording

    I know we have an ability to edit and silence soundtrack, but it is not useful for long recordings. We should be ably to mute mic on the fly

  15. Add Seconds to the Max Time

    When setting the Max Time for a recording, it would be nice to have the ability to set the seconds, not just hours and minutes. The idea being that I would like to make a 3 second or 5 second clip.

  16. Upload images to Google Drive / Dropbox

    It would be nice if images could be uploaded to Google Drive and Dropbox, too.

    I know this feature isn't planned yet, but you already have the upload-functionality for videos to these storages. The product would feel more complete, with an image-upload functionality to these storages, too.

  18. Dual or Multi screen recording

    Allow recording of two screens at once. I found I was unable to do this while doing a tutorial on programming using both screens. So I know for a fact it is possible and 2 of the competitors offer this feature.
