What are the differences between the “Capture Mouse Relative To” options?
Capture Mouse: A check placed in this option will record all mouse clicks and movements made during the capture process.
- The Relative to Screen option captures all mouse clicks and movements in relation to the cursor’s position on the monitor.
- The Relative to Window option captures all mouse clicks and movements in relation to the window you are capturing in. If you are working in just one program, then you should use relative to the window. This means that it doesn’t matter if the window moves (resizing is different) on the screen–the mouse should still move in relation to the window.
- The Relative to Position option captures the mouse clicks or movements based on the last position of the mouse cursor. Relative to position is usually used when you want to move the mouse down a line and click on something and you would like to repeat this process 10 times. By moving the mouse relative to the last position, you would accomplish the goal of going down each line. If you moved the mouse relative to the window, it would go to the exact same spot 10 times in a row.
