Need larger webcam view when recording screen and webcam

When recording the screen and webcam at the same time the view provided of the webcam is tiny, even when using the hoover function to make it larger.  I need a way to size the video view at least before recording so I can properly frame what is being recording and ensure there isn't anything in the background I don't want in the frame.  The best solution would be to have a way to drag the size of the webcam frame.  An option to float the webcam view during recording or shut it off would also be great but it's more important to get a good view of the frame before I hit recording...which I can't get today.

no this does't help  I don't think camtasia has taken the time to address this very large flaw.

Thanks but that doesn't seem to help.  The small window that shows the webcam is too small.  To make it larger you can hoover but even then it's only about a 3 inch square and you have to keep the mouse over it to see it.

Yea, Mr. Woerner, it is not understandable that the webcam recording monitor ist so small one must use a microscope to see it.  The Camtasia developers seem to have no idea about screenrecording and aren't willing to better the problem.

so basically what I am seeing is that this product is utterly useless for my applications?
