2. Adjusting your appearance with the presenter panel

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.

This document is meant to be a user manual of sorts, so read it in its entirety or use the table of contents to jump around. Don’t see the answer to your question? If you’re having technical difficulties or want to suggest a topic for this guide, drop us a line at help@mmhmm.app.

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. 



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. You can use the Full Frame to use your actual background to present your slides rather than using one of our virtual backgrounds.



Use these Effects to 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. Your options are limitless!  


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!

Laser pointer

Click the “Pointer” button to use your mouse to draw attention to certain areas of your slides. Click the arrow to the right of that button to choose the color of your laser. Clicking the “Pointer” button, or P again turns it off.
