New Features: Announcing Video Annotations for Mac – and More

Highlight information as you record videos with Zight (formerly CloudApp)’s new Video Annotation tool! Record faster, easier than ever.‍

Markups available with Video Annotations






*All with any color and duration!


What do I use it for?

With video annotations, you can use Arrow, Circle, Rectangle, Pen, and Highlighter tools to clearly illustrate, emphasize, or highlight information as you record. Change how long your annotation lasts to match your pace – so your arrows, highlights, etc. can last an eternity or disappear after one second. Spend less effort explaining and save more time!

How do I get this feature?

The video annotations feature is a premium feature that is automatically enabled with all Pro, Team, and Enterprise accounts. If you are on a Free account and would like to access these features, you can upgrade your account here.
