Setting a timer when using video capture using Snagit 12

I would like a timer in Snagit 12 where I can set a timer that would stop my video capture.
I often record a lecture on the internet that I want to keep to look at later and edit. Sometimes I need to leave for a meeting, but still want to record the lecture. It would be great where I could set a timer to stop the video capture so I don't use too much memory before I use Snagit editor to delete the section I don't want. Please let me know if this feature will be added to new updates. This I think a number of your customers would want.
You have a great product that I use every day many times.
Thanks

Hey there,

Snagit doesn't currently have this feature, but you can do something similar to it in Camtasia. If you are recording long videos, you may want to take a look at Camtasia, which is better equipped for long video recordings. We have a free trial available here: https://www.techsmith.com/download/camtasia/

I'll pass along the idea with Snagit though!

It seems crazy to me that you folks build a great product but historically you miss the blindly obvious like start/stop timed video capture.

Add me to the list of people that want a timer for recordings. I agree with John Walters, above.

Me 4! I watch webinars from a different timezone, so I end up going to sleep halfway through. Then I have to "cut" then end off the video as the webinar ended. Sometimes have to cut as much as 6-7 hours of "dead-video" it would be really great if there was a timer!!!

I already own Camtasia but use Snagit because it is quick and easy. Please add this timer feature to Snagit.
