Having a mouse pointer captured as part of a desktop being streamed, is quite easy. But I wanted to have various images and videos superimposed over that desktop view in OBS Studio, and the mouse pointer then disappears behind those images or videos. I've noticed this happening with some videos I've done, and although I'm seeing the mouse pointer on the screen I'm capturing, it is hidden from viewers by the superimposed images I added via OBS Studio. Searching for solutions kept bringing back to how to capture the mouse pointer with a basic desktop streaming capture.
So I thought of this really simple solution by just creating a new source from a suitable image, and manipulating it on the OBS Studio monitor screen. The effect is seamless for viewers, who then see the "pointer" moving and pointing to whatever I'm discussing. It hardly warranted having this video done, but may save some others a few minutes of head scratching.
