It’s your show.

Hi there! If you’re like us, you’re spending a lot more time on video than ever before. With mmhmm, we’re trying to make that a bit more fun and engaging. Clear, compelling video communication should be easy for everyone.

Adjusting your appearance with the Presenter panel

On the right-hand side of the interface, you’ll find the Presenter panel. This is where you can adjust how you appear to your audience.

Presenter opacity

This slider determines how translucent you appear on the Stage. Whenever you find yourself blocking your slide content, consider going partially translucent to allow your audience to “see through” you. Alternatively, you can go completely translucent to disappear from the scene completely so that full attention is on your slides. 

 

Presenter size

This slider determines how big or small you appear on the Stage. Use this slider with the anchor buttons to determine which corner you shrink to or expand from when adjusting presenter size. 

 

Frame

You have three options for the Frame:

No frame - This cuts out your silhouette wherever you are in the camera’s field. This can hide your background with or without a green screen.

Full frame - This is the rectangular frame option. The sides, top, and bottom can be adjusted for the perfect crop. This is also the frame to use if you would prefer to use your actual background instead of one of our virtual backgrounds.

Circle frame - This is a tight circular frame.

These effects are applied to your camera so that only a portion of your head and body is visible on the stage. By default, everything visible in the foreground of your camera will be visible to your audience, but you can select a Circle or Full Frame to limit what’s visible and let it focus only on your head. 

By default, the Full and Circle frames follow you as you move around. If you would like for the camera to stay still, uncheck “Track me.” 

 

Effects

Effects add an overlay to yourself or your presentation for added fun. Use the Glitch to bow out of a meeting because of your allegedly poor Wifi connection, or add Rain when you're just having one of those days. 

To adjust the settings on the Effects, click the gear icon next to the name of the filter. Use the slider to make the setting more intense or less intense.

 

Away button

If you need to take a moment for yourself during the call, hit the “Away” button to let other attendees know you’ll be right back but don't forget to mute your microphone!
