I know keymon but as you say it’s not being developped anymore, which is why I said screenkey is the only one still being actively developped.
The Blender screencast keys add-on is not included in Blender anymore, even in the Testing category. You can still download it and use it but I find screenkey already better.
Neither does screenkey if you don’t want it to. You can draw a rectangle on your screen or select a window to fit it inside.
It seems I should get a bit into the details of screenkey’s features and why I put my money in it.
I plan to make a full “feature demo” video but for the moment I’ll just show you this short one and explain a few things :
As you can see the screenkey “widget” fits in an area that I determined, the mouse displays not only the different clicks but also the scrolling, and the modifier keys are shown differently to the other keys (they only appear while being pressed, which is better for showing shortcuts)
a few features I didn’t show in this video :
- you can change the color of both the mouse and the text
- you can change the color of the background
- you can change the transparency of the background (even make it disappear), independently of the text and mouse
- you can change the shape of the mouse any way you like by opening the svg file in Inkscape
And my favorite feature which is planned to be developped is to display the various mouse actions right around the cursor (with different yet easy to understand shapes), so the viewer doesn’t have to make frantic eye movements between the mouse icon and the cursor or miss something and rewind all the time.
This would be especially powerful for blender tutorials, as Blender not only makes extensive use of the various mouse actions but it also has an unusual way of using them, so beginners could really find that helpful when watching the video.
So, does Vokoscreen do that ?
