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 tab

On the right-hand side of the interface, you’ll find the Presenter tab. 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. 

 

Mask

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 square mask to limit what’s visible and let it focus only on your head. 

 

Colorize

Use these color selections to add a color overlay to your camera to create some separation from your slide content. The colorization adds faint horizontal lines to soften your face (in case you “forgot” to shave or want to mask the sleep lines on your face if you’ve just rolled out of bed.) Pick one of the four basic colors, or select the color wheel to choose your own. 

 

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. 

 

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 again turns it off.
