That's pretty cool! I always wondered how to do that but I wasn't brave enough to play with anything in the filtering section :P
Who knew it'd be so easy?! Thanks for a great and easy to follow tutorial :)

how do you get the red circle around the mouse cursor?

amakerguy (author)whjh2009-07-18

I can't see it when I'm recording but the recording software does that if I want it to. I use camstudio
