Is there a way of showing which mouse button was clicked, something along the lines of blue for right click and red for left click.

How about in Camtasia? I don't want to spend the $$$ to find out I can't.
Are there any other TechSmith products that will show which mouse button was
enabled?

I need this for work but am not allowed to DLed trial programs.

None that I'm aware of.

May I ask why you need a visual notification of which mouse button is pushed?

Hi scroffa,

Yes, in Camtasia Studio, you can select different cursor effects for left and right clicks. Here's proof!



Hope this helps.

Tutorial purposes. The video routines I capture and the accompanying narration
of the processes required, I believe, is better visually absorbed as opposed to
an audible choose right click or left click of the mouse button. People can't
visualize what I'm clicking unless I verbally interrupt my program and then have point out which mouse buttons I'm pressing Hopefully TechSmith will include it in their next upgrade.,

See Bandicam or HyperCam.3 for their use of color representation of
left - right mouse clicks.

I'm hoping you saw my comment above, but I did want to reiterate that it is indeed possible in Camtasia Studio.

I'm sorry but I misunderstood what you were asking. As Josh said, Camtasia can do that.

Try it out.
