    • 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.

      • Live

        I am a YouTuber and this is a very good screen recorder for free, maybe make it where we can live stream on YouTube, and look at it this way, If you leave the water mark for non pro members you it could promote your app and more people start to use it. It's just an idea. Like I said I'm a YouTuber and I would really like to live stream without a captor card and an encorder.

        • Up the Frame Rate and maybe 1080HD

          I'm not asking for 60 frame rates per second, but maybe up it to 45 or 50. When I'm recording the game I'm playing my computer is running smoothly, but after I finish recording the frame rate cuts a little bit. I know it could be hard because you guys work on so many updates, but I hope that you guys can fix this, thanks for being so amazing Screencast-O-Matic.com

          • Place audio and video into separate tracks so they can be edited independently.

            In scripted recordings, it sometimes becomes necessary to change where the audio begins in relation to what's happening in the video. Rather than needing to re-record the entire video and hope you get it right this time, it would be nice to simply move where the audio track begins. Separating the tracks would also allow more flexibility with video playback, such as speed and pause.

            • I want to upload a .srt file for closed captions for my video

              I would like to upload a .srt file to my video to add closed captions. This would allow me to make the recordings in lecture format, have the recording transcribed, and upload the transcription file (.srt) to the video to add closed or open captions.

              • Voice Changing Idea

                I was wondering if you can add something that can change your voice during record sessions.

                    • Add Markers to Video Track, like Bookmarks

                      Just the ability to set markers at various places in the video during editing to be able to find locations quickly. If it currently has this, I can't seem to find it anywhere

                        • Pinned Recordings

                          I have brief intro and exit videos that I add to the beginning and end of a series of videos. Right now I use the search function to locate those when I insert them. It might be nice to be able to pin certain recordings so they appear at the top of the list. So you could pin/unpin videos to make them more easily accessible.

                          • Create Redact Tool

                            Similar to the draw & zoom tool, it would be very extremely beneficial to create a redaction tool to Redact/Blur sensitive data while recording.

                              • Automatic/artificial voice narration, build in voice to text function

                                I would like to use an automatic voice narration option - some tool build in the Pro version that would hide an accent and voice tone (timbre).

                                When use another tool - don't work very good, voice need to be upload after the video is created and that screw up all thing. Is there any better option for that?

                                  • Please add EQ editing

                                    It would be fabulous to be able to add or remove Bass, Middle and Treble during the edit phase. Better still a 9 band graphic equaliser so I can tweak the audio of my USB microphone.

                                    • Add Chroma Key Support for Intel Realsense Cameras

                                      Given that this software picked up on the Intel Realsense Camera's Depth Perception piece i suggest adding in Chroma/Ultra Key so if someone needs to just show themselves and not the background and if they have an intel realsense camera or it's respective derivatives they could have that option of immersive video

                                      • Allow sorting of uploaded videos in the Queue (click and drag)

                                        I want to batch upload videos, they are processing in the background, however there are times i want to record videos whilst this is happening and would like those videos to be uploaded first, so i think it would be great to sort the upload queue.

                                        Hope others feel this is valuable also

                                        • a grid for the editor for easy placement of overlays.

                                          What I would like to see included in the editor is a grid , for easy placement of overlays (text images etc). Maybe even a "snap to grid" option. Could also be useful in animating objects. This software just keeps getting better.
