When making a recent recording the recorded mouse cursor is smaller than the actual native cursor.

Expected Behavior:
Cursor to be the same size as original

That's not normal/expected. Can you send us a screenshot? I haven't seen this happen here.

Hmm... How do you take a screenshot with a cursor in it? I can't send you what I'm seeing but here's a frame grab from a Camtasia screen recording of Google's home page.

That is definitely not right. It looks about half-size. Are all the cursors throughout the video like that, or just some of them?
As a workaround, for the moment, you can adjust the size of the cursor in the properties for the video:


As far as the root issue... it kind of seems like a retina issue? What do the properties in your display settings look like? Do they look like this? :
