movable video

Is there a way to create a video where I move the video capture window to different parts of the screen. For example, if I create a 400x400 capture area, can I move that to different location in my monitor?

Thanks for your reply-- what I want to do is to move the capture frame after video capture has started. Is that possible?

I've tried but I cannot find a handle to grab! The capture window seems to be immovable

in Recorder's tools/options/program tab, be sure that region appearance is set to corners, also use glowing capture rectangle

Do you mean under Additional Options and Help? I looked there but did not see what you recommend. Am I looking in the wrong place?

Hey kayakman, hope your well.

I needed an excuse to use the new Steps designs I created for SnagIt. I may modify them a bit. 

That's the main reason I'm responding here. I know you have it under control. {: >)

Simon, The step by step is shown below. See Image Below, Click to enlarge.
Regards, Joe

thanks Joe, greatly appreciated

I'm beginning to wonder if they might be using Camtasia For Mac [I don't know those UIs] ?

Thanks very much for the detail. My interface does not look like yours! I'm running SnagIt 12 on a PC. I cannot get to Tools < Options.

SnagIt 12 does not have these features. This is Camtasia's settings and it looks like your question got posted to the Camtasia forum as well as the SnagIt one. SnagIt 12's recorder is very basic and rudimentary. You can record the screen, your voice and system audio at the same time. That's about it.
Moving the capture area around while recording is not possible with SnagIt.
Sorry about that. Joe
