Freeware desktop capture and recorder tool oCam has been updated to version 254 with new mouse effects.
It’s now possible to highlight left and right mouse clicks with various animations, making your actions much clearer to the viewer.
This is all very configurable, with five animation styles, your choice of colour, size and duration, and a preview window to simulate the results.
The other major addition in this release is the ability to record the area around the mouse cursor (Tools > Options > Record > Recording area…).
Once enabled, you must still define a recording window size (640×480, say), but it’s no longer static. Click Record and oCam moves that window along with your mouse cursor, allowing you to focus the viewer’s attention on whatever you need them to see.
Elsewhere, oCam extends its already impressive list of recording profiles – MP4, M4V, FLV, MOV, WMV, AVI, TS, VOB, more – with a new MKV option: NVENC + FLAC, OpenH.264 + FLAC.
OCam is a freeware application for Windows XP and later.
