Could Martin find a way to simplify desktop capture feature in the upcoming realease?

By adding options to select specific area of the desktop using mouse dragging method. Calculating x and y coordinate during production for a novice will be an issue... E.g. Capturing of just a player section on a youtube website, or capturing individual remote callers on oovoo or google hangout as an individual input.

I used third party webcam software to do this for me and select it from my capture input.
What's nice about this software is the capture window, easy to scale using your mouse.
The software is called MagicCamera.

Easy to do with vMix. In setting up the Desktop Capture input choose a window such as Chrome or Ie. Next on the traget PC/Laptop. Bring Chrome over the area you want to capture. Resize chrome then ALT-TAB it to the back exposing the image you want. Done.

I still believe this can be improved by just a simply dragging a right click mouse on top of the area needed after selecting custom instead of using x/y co-ordinate.

Thanks
