Annotation tools for video recording

We’re releasing a new feature — Annotation tools for video recording — in this update. Below is a brief introduction.

A new option “Show Annotation Tools” is added to the Record menu. When it’s turned on, a toolbar will appear in the lower left corner of your screen during recording. With those tools, it will be much easier to help your audience pay attention to the most important part of the video.

  • Mouse Pointer Highlight

You can get a yellow circle background around your pointer to make it more visible, or a red circle animation to show your mouse click action, or a spotlight effect to focus on a specific area. See how it works below.

  • On-screen Annotation

With annotations tools, you can draw on your screen, add shapes to key points to make it easier for your audience to follow along.

This new feature is included in the Professional plan, and available for free trial to those who meet the requirements. For more details, check out the latest pricing plans.

We hope you love this update. As always, we are all ears. Don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions, comments or suggestions.
