Seeing exact conversation alignment gain on the side or something?

Often have come across YouTube video cut-scenes where instead of just saying "approves" it shows the charecter's face and the number you gain right under it. Can't find it under "conversations" in settings and although it's likely a dumb question I hope to finally find out how.
I can try to find YouTube video examples of what I mean if it helps..

That's because those are old videos, with the old UI in them, pre patch 4.0. And those points are "affection" points. If you look carefully, you'll notice that when the companion dislikes a response the number shown is negative.

The new UI reflects the change to "Influence". Basically, if your companon approves, you get +200 points (+260 if you have fully maxxed out the Legacy unlocks to boost companion Influence gain from conversations). If they don't like your response you get +50 (or +65). IOW, it doesn't matter if they approve or disapprove of your response, you still gain points. You just don't gain as many points when they disapprove.

And regardless of old or new UI, you don't actually gain those points until you finish whatever mission (or mission chain) and get the popup with your mission rewards, and accept it.

The full list is:
* Greatly Approves = +400 (boostable to +520)
* Approves = +200 (=> +260)
* Nothing = nothing
* Disapproves = +50 (=> +65)
* Greatly disapproves = +0

Items that talk about "appreciates" or "is amused"? No idea.

There aren't many "greatly disapproves" items, and the one that springs to mind immediately is Elara Dorne's reaction to one particular choice in the A-77 mission in the Trooper story. By comparison, that used to give about -350 affection before 4.0.
