Cursor flickering/only right lower corner being recorded of what i selected

  • Updated 2 years ago
During recording a game window, my mouse keeps flickering which is really annoying. therefore i googled how to fix it and i found out that if i uncheck "capture layered windows" in tools-> options, the flickering stops. HOWEVER when the option is unchecked, camtasia only records the lower right corner of the window i selected which is not the case when the option is checked. anyone knows how to fix this? i want to record the whole screen without my mouse flickering the whole time.


im using the 32bit version of camtasia 8 on windows 7

If you set the recorder to record to AVI it will probably fix the problem.



The only drawback is that you cannot add cursor effect in the editor.

However, if you want cursor effects. You can set them to record to AVI but they will be burned into the video. Which is less than ideal in my opinion.

Camtasia 8 is no longer officially supported so they may opt to not help you at all. However, they helped me with Camtasia 7  long after support for Camtasia 7 ended so it's certainly worth a try
