  • Updated 5 years ago
Rather than use the mouse I record with - I hide that, and animate a new mouse. I thought last time I did this I downloaded it from Camtasia library - but I can't seem to locate it - do you have any recommended cursor/pointers/mouse/hands I can import into Camtasia to then use for animation?

make your own ...

grab an image of a cursor style you want to use, preferably one taken on top a solid color

import the image into CS; use remove a color to get rid of the background color; put into Library

use as desired

This is a Great way to do a custom cursor. I created a video to make it easy to understand.
The web site to download these free cursors is >>>            Open Cursor Library - 58644 cursors

This will allow you to use Camtasia's  cursor effects. 
Plus, you will never need to animate a cursor manually  ever again.

Thank you Joe  : >)

  I used party hat cursors. Balloon cursors. Teddy Bear cursors and more. This was for my daughters 6th birthday party video. It was a fun video that my friends enjoyed watching.
I am glad you uploaded the video. I would have never change my default cursor without it. Changing it back to default was very easy.
Enjoy the day! Ginger
