Enable Snapping for overlay elements
Snapping helps you align Presenter elements within your slide by snapping elements together when they are close.

Hide XSplit presenter from Screen Capture
This option is useful when you don't have screen real estate but still want to use screen capture. This will hide VideoCom Presenter from screen capture so no one can see behind the scenes.

Enable countdown before recording
Enabling this option will ensure you're ready when starting a recording by displaying a 3 second countdown before the recording actually starts.
