Other improvements and fixes

  • On the Mac, we've moved the screen recorder's timer and stop button from the menubar to a dock on the side of your screen, where it should be easier to use. It also gives us space to add upcoming features, like a pause button. If you don't like the dock showing up in your recordings, set it to auto-hide in the screen recorder preferences.
  • We've addressed quirkiness in the UI for moving a Project to a different folder.
  • When you submit an Overdub Voice for training from a training project, you'll be prompted with a recorder to capture your Voice ID.
  • We’ve made a small update to the Overdub model to get rid of a “metallic” sound that some users experienced. If this is you, head into your training project and re-submit for training to improve your Voice.
