I must be missing something?

edited December 2012 in Voila Discussions
hello there, I'm trying to use the demo version to see if Voila will be appropriate for what I want to do.

I record an area of the screen, then go to the Tools or Effects tab and click on a Tool or Effect. I am not able to select anything in the Tool/Effects palette, and I don't appear to be able to apply anything at all.

I tried this on a MacBook Pro running 10.6.8 and an iMac running 10.7.4.

Voila looks like a great app, but not being able to add a Highlight, or otherwise mark up the video, is not going to work for me... I'm sure I'm missing something simple.


  • Hi Davidperry,

    Regarding your query, Voila is limited to image editing only.
    If video capture is selected, then the features like tools, text cannot be activated.
    While creating Voila, our main aim was to make it the best "screen capture" tool with all the editing feature.
    As a request we included the video recording feature. We cannot promise you anything but we will try to make video capturing features still more better.

    Captured video cannot be edited. Captured video can only be trimmed with the help of QuickTime.
