Undocumented Functionality?

Maybe I didn't get the memo, but ...

1. when in a project that has audio, the share menu lets you export only the audio; but what I did not know was if you have a timeline segment selected using the playhead selector tools, then only that portion of the audio is exported

is that documented anywhere?

2. if you have a screencast.com account, there used to be a limitation of 100 MB on the size of a media clip that could be uploaded using the web interface; that limitation seems to have been removed recently

was that announced anywhere?

3. when you replaced some sc.com media, there used to be a 100 MB [or less?] limitation; that limitation too seems to have been removed

again; announced?

I did split audio out on an insert (edit clip) to get rid of some fan noise and that portion (12 seconds) was highlighted so I got exactly what I needed rather than 3 min version! It was nice and simple.

I believe screencast.com was improved from recent work, but I don't recall seeing anything about file size or capacity limits being increased.

thanks, maybe the sc.com improvements were "stealth" upgrades?

per tech support, the sc.com improvements are only indicated in an updated help item that now shows a 2 GB limit

The screencast.com web uploader was completely overhauled a month or two ago. The old version was Flash-based and had some limitations as a result of that technology stack. The revised uploader takes advantage of newer HTML/browser features and is more reliable and can handle much larger files as a result.

I don't think we announced this anywhere, but I'll let the right people know you would have appreciated that. We publish to our web services regularly and don't always announce changes there, or sometimes we'll publish a lot of things incrementally and then do notifications in a batch.

I can't speak to the Camtasia functionality you mentioned.
