Implement mouse cursor (and mouse clicks) annotation in video recording

As described in the feature request about implementing Video Recording in TestComplete,

I would additionally want to report a feature request on implementing mouse cursor annotation, in these video recordings, as illustrated in the attached video.


The reason for that is as follows:

Currently, I use a freeware tool for this, which I would like to mention because it does it's job well but integrating this in TestComplete would potential create beneficial value for QA/ Test engineers.


The tool I am currently using is CamStudio:
