How Do I Use an Annotated Pointer On Mac Catalina?

I’ve seen Gary (and many others) use an annotation pointer (red dots, circles, exploding selections, etc) when making instructional videos, etc. on his Mac OS

Is that feature an external app – if so, what is it?

I am using my client for Mac to hold meetings and would like to use annotation features other than what offers.

    For my videos, that is a feature inside of ScreenFlow. So I don’t see it when I’m recording, but I can change aspects of the cursor while editing. So I make the cursor larger, and also have an effect applied when I click. It is just a setting I turn on. I don’t have to do it for each click.

    You also get this with simple macOS screen recording. When you use Command+Shift+5 you can choose the option to turn on Show Mouse Clicks and you get a circle when you click in the recording.

    If you want to do something like this, but “live,” there is an app called Mousepose ( that you can use.
