    Hi!

    I love the Unity Recorder, the only issue for me is that it for me right now isn't capturing the cursor.
    Does anyone know how to get the recorder to include the cursor?


    I found an old thread that said to put the collection method to "Game" but I don't have that option in the Recorder-menu in Unity 2020.3.6f. (LTS). I also added the script the unity-employee in the thread wrote one could try to add the mouse. I added the script to a gameobject that runs on start, but it's not making the recorder record the mouse either.


    Does anyone know how to go about? I've found no other resources on this.

    Cursor.SetCursor() didn't work for me. Hopefully I'm doing something wrong. I've found no other resources too. @HuldaGnodima let me know if you've found any solution please.

    Code (CSharp):
    1. #if UNITY_EDITOR
    2.     using UnityEditor;
    3. #endif
    4.  
    5. public class cursorVisible : MonoBehaviour
    6. {
    7.     void Start()
    8.     {
    9.         #if UNITY_EDITOR
    10.             Cursor.SetCursor(PlayerSettings.defaultCursor, Vector2.zero, CursorMode.ForceSoftware);
    11.         #endif
    12.     }
    13. }

    I actually didn't manage to get it to work unfortunately. Eventually I stopped looking for a fix. But I would love to get it to work, I'll have a look around again. If you find a solution, please share. I will absolutely do the same!

    I am experiencing the same thing. In the first place, I can also check if my mouse is working properly. After that, I'll track my mouse.

    10.             Cursor.SetCursor(PlayerSettings.defaultCursor, Vector2.zero, CursorMode.ForceSoftware);
    11.         #endif
    12.     }
    13. }
    Set cursor texture by the Player settings window (default texture is None), I could record the cursor.

    Unfortunately not working for me. Once I set "CursorMode.ForceSoftware" I don't see cursor at all in the Game view. If changed to "CursorMode.Auto" I see my custom cursor, however it is still not recorded by Unity Recorder.
    Unity 2022.3.8, HDRP, Unity Recorder 4.0.1

    UPDATE: CursorMode.ForceSoftware doesn't work with New Input System.

    I'm also interested on how to do this to capture UI interactions.

    Just provide a texture instead of PlayerSettings.defaultCursor, It worked for me...
