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.
