What do you see as the most applicable / popular use case here? Can personally see myself using this for email newsletters, in particular.

@allisonshea30 I am personally using it to enhance bug reports or GitHub issues. We also use one animated screenshot on our product page. Sometimes I also send my mum a small GIF that shows her how to attach a photo to an email or something like that :)

@weichsel Ah, interesting! I bet folks working on more technical support teams could find it useful as well. Good call re: Mom explanations. I'll have to do the same :)
Thomas ZoechlingMaker@weichsel · Founder, Peakstep
@allisonshea30 yes - also works great for support :) I am occasionally answering support mail with GIFs.

Freaking love it. Got a few requests though: - Gif export filesize preview. Just so I can tweak until I'm happy before the exporting. - Saved presets for advanced options on export. So I don't have to re-set the settings for every export. - Would be helpful to export directly to Droplr instead of exporting a file, to then upload manually. It might be there already, but Droplr doesn't appear on my share screen options? http://share.richardsison.com/16tQB - Would like the ability to drag a box for my selected record area. In addition to using the handles because that's still helpful (especially the center-guides!) So freaking close to a perfect product. Great job!

@richardsison Thank you for the detailed feedback. - I'd also love to have a preview for the file size. The problem is, that we'd have to perform a full export pass for each changed setting to determine the exact file size. Not sure yet, how I can implement this. - We currently only support a subset of the sharing services. It's planned to support all services that make sense for video/gif assets in the future. We also plan to make it possible to set a default export type for each service (e.g. H.264 video for Mail, GIF for Twitter, ...) - This is one of our most common feature requests. So it's already on our list. Personally I think that selecting the crop region after recording makes more sense than defining that region beforehand. Because for video it's harder to estimate the needed region than for a still image.

@weichsel Oh i personally don't mind the full-screen record. I didn't expect it at first, but realised it's actually pretty good for flexibility. I just meant that setting the crop region via a drag-box would be a good alternative to using handles only. I hope saved presets for advanced options isn't too tricky though? I'd probably find the sweet spot of "good enough" quality for my needs and always use that.

@richardsison Oh. I forgot to answer that point above :) We already store all settings, except "Number of Colors" and "Dithering Level" in the user defaults. Those two settings are very specific to the recorded material. E.g. if you have a lot of gradients but not too many colors in your recording, you want a high dithering level but a low color count. Those two values need manual tweaking to achieve optimal results, so we fall back to sane defaults for each export.

Intrigued, used to use Screenflow, now using Snagit's video recording solution. Will check this out in future.

Mac Os already supports screen rec with mic. What's the Claquette's benefit? only exporting gif and trimming capture?

Bought it today. Perfect for what I'm trying to do and the Vimeo export is perfect, although a little hidden (Maybe it should appear in file/export menu?). Thanks Thomas, keep up the great work :)
