Projected to the main monitor, desktop capture powerpoint using Windows Graphics Captue, which captures to the mouse cursor, other options are not available.

Projected to monitor 2 monitor, the desktop captures the powerpoint, and when the briefing is operated, the full-screen picture output by VMIX is obscured, forming the powerpoint in the first layer and VMIX in the second layer.

Is there a way to keep VMIX on top and the mouse metrics don't appear in the screen?

At the moment, I use the reading mode of the powerpoint as the capture material, but the downside is the loss of pixels, and the animations and transitions in the sometimes will fail.


In addition, capturing PDF (Adobe Acrobat), using Windows Graphics Captue, does not capture mouse metrics.

What? I find I can't quite understand what you are asking and what exactly is the problem.

Why are you capturing Powerpoint? Capturing the mouse movements?

What are you feeding the captured Powerpoint to? vMix?

Why are you feeding the captured Powerpoint output to a window that is also used by vMix? Or is it contained within vMix as it should but it's not filling the window as has other stuff leaking through from behind?

The "mouse metrics" is their presence a problem or the lack of them a problem.

Essentially, I just need to know what you are actually trying to do, so I or someone else can advise you on how to fix it (if possible and if we can provide a usable answer).

FWIW, I used NDI Screen Capture (from the free NDI Tools package) to create an NDI stream from the laptop running Powerpoint that was fed to vMix until we changed to using ProPresenter 7 which provides an NDI stream itself but I didn't need the mouse cursor or any mouse metrics so that may not be a solution for you. But if just getting the Powerpoint output from a computer running Powerpoint into vMix then that is a very workable solution.
