For Version 2 There is a new 'Pointer' menu. From this menu you can turn the Pointer on or off. The Pointer is designed to be used when you are recording screen activity for training or demonstration purposes.
When the Pointer is switched on, it appears in the centre of your screen. It is a small circular loop with targeting cross hairs. It does not follow the mouse automatically. To move the pointer grab the edge of the circle and move the Pointer to where you wish to perform a mouse action. When you release the mouse button the Pointer is 'zeroed' on the object you wish to manipulate, ie: a menu, folder, a button etc. You can then select or click the object through the middle of the loop.
By making the movement of the Pointer with the mouse a conscious decision, it leaves you free to use the mouse on the screen without it being seen in the resulting video. Maybe you wish to move the mouse to a second monitor and perform some action, or you wish to manipulate the screen environment without being seen to do so. Using this method that movement will not be seen in the final video.
We believe this unique pointer ability combined with our User Preset facility and our 'Magnify at Cursor' function make macVCR one of the best screen recording applications for Mac OSX.
* Mac OS X Version 10.5 Leopard or higher
