This morning I watched CNBC and saw– on one screen– six talking heads, one large onscreen headline, a breaking news headline below, scrolling stock feeds and prices, and a strip of something scrolling by that I didn’t even recognize. It’s all part of communicating, 21st century style.
Here’s how to add something similar to your webcam videos.
Boring Webcams Begone!
Webcam chatting, Skype, FaceTime and other video enabled social apps are all the rage these days, but who wants to look at a boring face on the screen when you can get creative with clutter?
That’s what the CamMask app does. It brings thousands of video effects– distortions, filters, borders, backgrounds, graphic images, doodling and more to a webcam– for free.
CamMask is akin to a digital effects studio for your Mac’s built-in iSight camera (or any attached webcam camera).
If you’ve ever wanted to clutter up your webcam screen, this is the app that can do it best.
Change a face using special effects, mixing it in with a photo from a celebrity or family member. Change the background to any image you want.
CamMask supports HD video in 720p and 1080p, but also handles picture-in-picture, multiple video sources, and you can switch between different video viewports.
See what you can do with just a few of the downloadable filters and effects?
Got multiple video cameras attached to your Mac? Preview and add video effects to each video feed.
Why put CamMask on your Mac? It’s fun. It’s like having your own personal CNBC screen on a Mac (runs on Windows, too).
That’s video communication 21st century style.
