Is there a timer for Mac as PC has when screen recording? I've been a long time user and started when I was using a PC and now use a mac for most of what I do. Quite surprised there is nothing for a timer, not one that stops the recording, but one that shows how long I've been recording as the PC version has. Tired of pulling out my phone to use it's timer. Won't be upgrading anymore until some pretty basic features are added like a timer and audio cross fades. It's 2019 not 2009.

Sorry, there is not an on-screen timer on the Mac side. There is only this info displayed on the recording icon:



For audio cross fades, I'm not sure what you're looking for. There are fade out / fade in audio effects you can use, or you can adjust the volume levels yourself (right-click, "edit audio..."). I hope that helps some.
