Is there a possibility to edit cursor movements afterwards?

If I remove a part of a video clip the cursor jumps - is there a way to repair this (except fading out the cursor)?

other than hiding the cursor, and using an image of the cursor, with animations, no

if severe, have you tried using fade transitions?

Hm okay. It would be really cool to have a function to edit the cursor path at the timeline. Or at least a function to re-record the cursor. Ooor at least a function to crossfade between two clips with different cursor position so that the cursor move slowly to the new position.

That's possible in Adobe Captivate (2-3 times the price) but it's awkward and time consuming to create which is why I try and talk clients into letting me use Camtasia (also, I have never really seen any 'captivating' Captivate e-learning)

Hm yes, for me it's not an option to change to Captivate just because that one feature. Especially since I really like Camtasia, but it's a real handycap not being able to edit the cursor. So I hope for this feature in the (near) future :)

I also simply animate the cursor. I googled the web for cursor images with transparent backgrounds and found a set (don't remember where). I now find myself animating the cursor on transitions and even in places where the recorded cursor is just sloppy motion on my part. The effect is great.

It would be nice if there were a way to edit the recorded cursor track, especially since people have been asking for this feature for years...
