I’ve searched the forum and also the documentation, but I couldn’t find an explanation. Is it possible to capture the computer screen with gaze information? Basically, I want to record a screencast with the information where the user is looking at. Is this possible?
Sebastian17/07/2014 at 10:14 #1386AndersParticipant
it’s certainly possible. There are tools for recording screencasts, and the EyeX SDK provides you with the gaze data. But there is no ready-made function that works out of the box with EyeX. Tobii offers a product for that called Tobii Studio, but it cannot be used with the EyeX Controller unfortunately.18/07/2014 at 13:31 #1395Sebastian MüllerParticipant
Thanks for the answer. I found a product called Gaze Viewer (http://www.tobii.com/en/assistive-technology/global/products/software/tobii-gaze-viewer/). Would this tool do the job and can it be used with EyeX?

The Gaze Viewer is a Tobii Assistive Technology product that only works with designated Tobii Assistive Technology eye trackers. It does not work with the Tobii EyeX Controller.30/06/2017 at 11:22 #7105jeffcardParticipant
I used a free web-based application called Acethinker Screen Recorder to capture my computer screen with gaze information, works perfect, you may check it out.30/06/2017 at 17:08 #7110Alex [Tobii]Participant
Please check this tool:30/07/2018 at 04:37 #8659ivylambParticipant
You can definitely complete recording screen with gaze when your recording tool is VideoSolo Screen Recorder. It is a friendly program that enables you to record screen without watermark.30/07/2018 at 13:23 #8661
Hi @ivylamb, that’s great! Thanks so much for the useful information.. hopefully of use to some other users 🙂21/11/2018 at 07:53 #9038huayingParticipant
FoneLab Screen Recorder does what you want including the recording screen with gaze. It works on both Windows and Mac.21/11/2018 at 12:56 #9039
thanks for the tip @huaying, too bad it’s paid software, but perhaps useful for those who don’t wish to use similar packages.19/02/2019 at 12:28 #9391WilliamParticipant
I’m using Joyoshare Screen Recorder to record computer screen, works well so far. You can have a try to see whether it meets your needs or not.

Hi @temavrn, sorry to hear about your issues. It looks like you are using the Tobii Screen Recorder as comes with the Tobii Pro Lab Software.
This forum is intended for support with the Tobii Tech Consumer level eye trackers (4C, Eyex, etc) and their associated SDK’s.
Please get in touch with Tobii Pro Support team directly @ http://www.tobiipro.com/contact/contact-support/ for an answer to your query.
That being said, if you are able to get the X2-60 to work with Tobii Ghost https://gaming.tobii.com/software/ghost/ this should allow you to use this software (designed for the consumer level of eye trackers) to create a smooth video showcasing your blender project.
Please do try it out and let us know how you get on. Best wishes.
