Feature Request: Add markers at animation points as well as transition points when recording via Windows Add-In

When recording from PowerPoint via Camtasia Add-In, markers are auto-added to the recording at slide transition points. I would find it very helpful if there were an option to ALSO add markers at animation points (so if a slide has 3 animations, a marker at the start of each animation).

My workflow for quick-and-dirty projects is to manually mark animations, then use CTRL+[ to move through the project and split the track at transition/animation points, then align to relevant external video/audio. Not having to manually mark animations would save many, many clicks.

Added as an Idea here at the suggestion of TechSmith Support:

I feel this request in my bones. +1 - this would make editing powerpoint presentations where you're matching the PPT screen recording with separately recorded VO *so* much easier. Like literally ripple edit to the part of the VO where it lines up.

Until the TSC Team implements this, you can press CTRL + M during the  recording but 1) that's cumbersome and 2) you have to remember.

@paulwilliamengle: *gasp* EVEN THIS would make my life easier, so thanks for the tip. I'll figure out a way to coordinate my clicking and keypressing and whatever other standing on my head I have to do to save the time.

@TechSmith: Options would be really good on this one (like, add markers when? only at on-click animations? at all animations? etc.).
