The ability to swap the mouse pointer in a Camtasia recording

I'm currently in the process of testing Camtasia on macOS after using ScreenFlow for over 10 years. One of the features I really miss in Camtasia from ScreenFlow is the ability to load any image and use it in place of the mouse pointer used during the recording.

Having this feature feature available means you could use one mouse pointer during the recording and another in the processed video. I've done this to use a large mouse pointer during live streams but another more subtle one in the recording made from these streams.

TechSmith's Twitter account suggested I post the idea here for consideration so fingers crossed for some support

Thank you for posting your suggestion!
While that feature is not there yet, it is something we are considering. In the mean time, for the specific case you talked about, it might help to know that you can control the size (scale) of the pointer:
