How To Fix OBS Cursor Flicker
by Clayton Lambert
I’ve recently been having some issues with my cursor flickering or even disappearing while I am trying to record my desktop. Today, while toying with some of the settings, I have finally found the culprit. I discovered that some settings in OBS just aren’t meant to be changed. Cursor flicker can be avoided by simply not checking the “Capture Layered Windows” check box in your monitor capture properties.
How To Fix The Cursor Flicker
[Step 1] Open up OBS and locate your monitor capture source.
[Step 2] Open the monitor capture source properties and locate the dreaded “Capture Layered Windows” check box.
[Step 3] Simply un-check “Capture Layered Windows” and hit “Ok”. Your cursor should no longer flicker or disappear while recording! Enjoy!
