Create Amazing CGI Special Effects!
Using the CGI tools that are featured in ManyCam, you can also add impressive special effects to Skype webcam chats.
Particularly impressive are the Backgrounds, where dynamic, animated backgrounds and static backdrops can be added to your video feed. These work by instructing ManyCam to capture the actual background of your room with you temporarily removed from the scene; for the best results, use an equally-lit room with a solid background.
You can then add the backgrounds, such as an animated view of rolling clouds, or static views that make it appear that you are in the tropics!
Similarly, the Effects options allow you to add some impressive video effects, from changing the quality and color of the captured video to adding dynamic effects, like snowfall (pictured). You can also add some interesting lens-based effects, such as mirrors and warps, and many effects from different categories can be combined to give you lots of interesting end results.
As you can see, ManyCam offers a wide selection of visual options to enhance your Skype chats or for use creating vlogs or streams for services, such as Ustream. The software is free and easy to use, and will turn a plain webcam video into a more polished production.
