Online Chat Visual Effects Visual effects make your online chat experience fun and entertaining. The program launches automatically as an unobtrusive panel whenever you open a video chat or webcam application. Then you can choose from a variety of frames, effects, and themes to apply to your video stream. Use digital pan, tilt, and zoom effects to focus your video, then let automatic face tracking and video enhancement help you look your best. You can also download effects or content as plug-ins from the ArcSoft website. Lots of Effects to Choose From Enhance your online chat experience and create extra laughs with the fun visual effects including: Filter, Mirror, Distort, Fun Frames, Animation Frames, and imaginative new themes such as Dancer, Singer, Snow, Corsair, and many others. Video Plug-in Technology Makes Everything Easier The program's Video Plug-in technology means that Magic-i Visual Effects launches automatically whenever you start a video chat or open one of your favorite webcam applications. There's nothing to it! Pan, Tilt, and Zoom Digital pan, tilt, and zoom of your webcam video means you can zoom in for close-ups or zoom out to show the full frame. Custom Avatar Further personalize your video chat experience with an avatar that acts as your "virtual self," tracking your facial expressions while you chat. Use one of the built-in avatars or create your own from any photo on your hard drive. Webcam Settings Provides easy to use interface to adjust webcam property settings. Loads personal profiles for your favorite color and video/image quality.
Noise Reduction Remove most types of noise from any webcam with this new tool and preserve the details of the video. Pixel Stabilization helps to calm video flickering. Dynamic Lighting This new technology brings better visibility by dynamically increasing the lighting on a dark area and restraining the lighting on a bright area. More Privacy Use the private button to substitute video streaming with any pictures, and also mute the MIC to place the listener on hold. Face Tracking Even though there are no moving parts to adjust the camera, face tracking expands the camera's perspective from roughly 10 degrees to about 50 degrees. What does that mean? It means the camera is able to recognize and track a human face as it moves around. Essentially, you and your visual effects won't accidentally drift off-screen as you move around in your chair - face tracking keeps you in the picture!
