To a Screen Recording, is there a native option or shortcut to zoom a specific area on the screen

(Sorry if that's not the right thread, but maybe it is... I don't know precisely :sweaty:)

Let's say I'm recording my screen for a tutorial. I want to know if there's a native solution or a shortcut (that's not the magnifier, because that doesn't work very well, is very limited and keeps showing that magnifier on the screen) to zoom in and out in specific areas of the screen only when pressed or anything.

Heard that the mac has this built-in, but I'm not sure. But anyway. If there is not anything besides the default magnifier, which software would you recommend? I want something that doesn't leave traces or messages or anything on the screen. just the zoom itself.
