OmniDazzle is a set of fun and useful enhancements that help you highlight certain areas of your screen, create visual effects, and track the location of your mouse pointer.

6 Reasons You Should Try OmniDazzle:

  • You've got a presentation this week, and you want to hear both "oohs" AND "ahhs" from the audience.
  • Your documentation could use some really great screen shots.
  • You want to point out something on your screen, without actually pointing.
  • You need to focus on specific tasks, like that one window over there, without looking at everything else on your display.
  • You'd like more...

doesn't work anymore with this configuration: MacBook Pro (15-Inch, late 2012), OSX 10.9.4 – "unrecoverable error" on launch. Doesn't seem to be continued. Therefore half

Wonderful for teachers. Works great when creating on-line lectures to highlight portions of an image or to draw/write.

From the OmniDazzle website: "Some graphics hardware is rejected by OmniDazzle even if it would probably work." This problem appears not to be related to hardware after all. I'm using 10.8.1 now and OmniDazzle no longer quits on launch. I don't know whether the remedy for the unexpected quit was related to updating to 10.8.1 or not.

There's no reason for this application to be limited to run on old hardware. I ran this just fine with my Early 2009 MacBook Pro 17" with 4G memory. But OmniDazzle refuses to run on my Mid-2011 MacBook Pro 17" with 8G memory.

as i was on a search for nice mouse effects i found this one and tried it out. i liked the effects very much especially the comic ones and the pixie dust one but it's not as intuitive to get them to work at least it wasn't for me. for instance i very much liked the idea of outlining certain points on a screen but the way to get this to work with every time different keystrokes while it would be easier to do this with two times clicking or sth like that so i hope this will be improved in a next update

I installed it a few days ago. It works well in Snow Leopard 10.6.3. It has a few nice optional mouse pointer effects for presentations or your own use. It's great to find a "lost" mouse pointer (especially on multiple monitors), or to zoom on a detail. And on top of it, it's free!

I only wish I could hide/remove it from a crowded dock, as it is already available in the main menu bar.

It is however a very useful little utility. I added it to my login items. Five stars from me.

I tried this a while bak on tiger OS . Was buggy then and is still so. Tried the zoom feature and computer froze up. Couldn't even force quit. Had to restart mac manually. I'll pass on this. Be fore warned!!!

When i replaced my ATI x1900 cards (they kept over-heating and no longer under warranty) I got nvidia 7800 gt cards (not great gaming cards but they don't over-heat) I was able to use OmniDazzle. The kid in me loves this and I would rank this as 5 just because it is fun ... Oh, i paid when it first came out and still feel it was worth it. Unfortunately i've changed something on my G5 and when i have Safari and iTunes and Entourage running (i have other apps running too), my G5 will slow to a crawl with the beachball spinning. The G5 looks like it is frozen, but at about every 2 mins the clock will change and sometimes a mouse click works and it will switch to the app that got clicked. I did not spend a lot of time in diagnostic after figuring out generally what the issue is. It was fun, but since Omni is not spending any real development on this product going forward i just removed it. It was alot of fun for awhile so i don't have any regrets retiring it.
