With "Snagit video capture", is it possible to put a markers at specific spots on the recording (while recording) so that when I watch the recording I can directly go to those markers?
Thank you

SnagIt's video capability is limited to making a quick, simple sharable mp4 file. For editing features you need to look at Camtasia.

I agree with what Joe and Timbre4 said above.

But, if all you have is SnagIt and you want a way to perhaps more easily identify sections, you might configure Windows Notepad with perhaps some text that identifies the section and full screen it. As you are recording, you would briefly present the Notepad document for a second or two then return to the recording. During playback, if you were scrubbing the playhead, you might more easily identify the spot as the flash of white background would appear.

You could then note the appropriate times where this happened. And if you were uploading to YouTube you are able to build sort of a table of contents that allows for jumping to those times in the YouTube editor.

Cheers... Rick :)
