Try these noise compensator tips:
1) When starting a new recording, click the gear icon and uncheck 'computer audio'.
2) If using a mic with an adjustable input, lower the input and move the mic closer to you. Takes some fiddling to get it right so try it out a few times.
3) Setup a keyboard shortcut to pause the recording and when using press the keys quietly.
4) Place your keyboard on a towel to reduce rattling.
5) Use a mouse pad especially if you've got a laminate or glass desk.
6) Add background music to drown out these irksome sounds.
As for other noise makers, mind your squeaky chair and hungry meowing cats underfoot.
Sharing a recording among multiple recordings is doable. I use SOM on my work computer and laptop.
Create a folder in Google Docs, or other cloud service, drag the SOM 'recordings' folder into it. Then in SOM, change the record-to folder (upper left) to that new cloud folder.
On your second computer do the same. This way all recordings are stored in one location and available to multiple computers.
On occasion, I do get a Google Drive error dialog is triggered by SOM. Dialog says Google Drive must restart. Screenshot: https://goo.gl/zD3MqM
Sync time depends on your total recordings. My current 265 recordings consume 75.4GB. Sync has to go both up and down to all machines. Let it run overnight if you've got a lot.
In 'Recorder Preferences' check out the option to show/hide the webcam while recording. Not a hotkey but you can change webcam visibility when editing.
Try using the 'Webcam Bog Hotkey' in Recorder Preferences
Seems you're looking for a title screen. A workaround is to create a Word document with your desired title. Record a few seconds of that screen, pause, then do your recording.
When editing, zoom in on the title portion of your recording to avoid capturing the Word application borders - makes for a neater end product. Recoding with Word in full-screen mode is another option.
The blur can follow the screen position. Set your blur, then add an animation action. Keeping a smooth screen scroll rate will make this easier.
You'll set a start/stop position and the time interval between those positions. If the timing does not match up quite right, go to the next higher time interval and set the end point off screen.
I think this logo upload feature only works with Premium accounts (not Free or Pro). There may be a workaround but this must be done with each video.
After all edits are done, add a picture overlay of your logo/branding icon. Using a file format that supports transparencies like png. This works for odd shape imgs and allows a translucent watermark if desired.
