I'm doing screen recordings and need to scale up the cursor in the actual video. When I scale the cursor, it pixelates. My recording resolution is 720p. I've set my system resolution to a host of different values, all with the same result. My preference is to record at 1080p. My Windows display settings are set to size text at 100%, not the standard 125% (though the result is the same with either). Right now, my screen recordings look terrible, not the high-quality resolution that I need to have in order to post to my company's YouTube page.

Are you increasing the size of your cursor in the editor?
Because if it's a .trec recording it shouldn't blurry.

Here's another thing. Your screen scale should be set to 100%. Not 125%. That will cause blurriness when rescaled  to video editing dimensions.

You want to record, edit and produce at the same dimensions for the best results.

I contacted TechSmith support about this. They are aware of the issue but didn’t seem to bothered about resolving it.
