Little circle around mouse

I’ve seen people in tutorials with a seemingly useful little circle around the cursor. Is this blender made or simply part of the operating system. If it’s enabled in blender I’d like to know how.

There is a third-party application being run which records everything that happens on the screen, usually along with sound being recorded by the microphone. Some of these applications also have options for making the mouse cursor more visible, sometimes by highlighting a circle around the cursor.

The actual software will depend on your Operating System, so try a google search for “screen recording software,” and look for one that will work with your OS.

Alternatively, if you’re using Linux, utilities like CompizFusion have options for doing this by default, whether you’re recording or not.
