Timer for Snagit video captures

It would be useful to have an optional timer feature for recordings. Without the user being physically present at the time of the recording, snagit would start the recording and end the recording at start and end times specified by the user.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Snagit 2018 Video recording - add a timer function to shut off recording.

I use my Snagit 2018 a lot for work to record the webinar sessions i have to
attend but i don't always want to stay to the end to stop the recording but I want to make sure I don't miss anything. I
would like to know if you would ever consider adding a timer to the video
recording function of the Snagit 2018? Please advise

I agree! Great idea. Why has Techsmith not created this for Snagit?

This does seem to be a frequent request and a timer would be appreciated.

I made a request last summer and someone replied to my request that stated he had made the same request 2 years before that along with several others. Not sure what the technical challenges are to get this programed to the computers clock but it would be a great enhancement to a really great tool.  I use the video recorder several time a week if not every day.

Did you all vote for this idea? That could help Snagit see it, just saying...
