What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing Quick Clip for macOS

Mac application Quick Clip

TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – After absence for two weeks and a half, I’m back with introduction of another desktop application. It’s called Quick Clip.

Quick Clip is a desktop application that I have developed so that I can easily clip a specific area of a desktop movie I record with QuickTime Player. QuickTime Player is a great piece of software that we all get to use. One problem is that it records the desktop movement for the entire screen. I often record a portion of it like 1,440 points x 900 points starting at the top-left corner in order to introduce a new desktop application that I have developed. If I record any mouse activity inside that portion, then a finished movie will look awkward. So I want to trim an area with no mouse activity. I also want to add one or more audio tracks to a desktop movie. And maybe watermarking a movie with a small image? So I’ve eventually ended up with Quick Clip.

  1. ‏type that the user has previously selected to the segment control when they opened the settings menu.

  2. I’m sorry, but the comment function is not currently working at this moment. What is the segment control that you are referring to? Unfortunately, this initial version doesn’t let you save your preferences. In the next version, I’ll have users save their preferences.
