Presenter opacity

Presenter opacity 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.

Click on the Style tab on the top left-hand side of mmhmm. Then, use your mouse to click and drag the Fade slider to adjust your opacity.

Presenter size

Presenter size 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

Selecting a frame will apply a crop 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 Rectangle to limit what’s visible and let it focus only on your head. 

Silhouette - This cuts out your silhouette wherever you are in the camera’s field. This can hide your background with or without a green screen.

Retangle - This is the frame to use if you would prefer to use your actual background instead of one of our virtual backgrounds. On mmhmm Studio, the sides, top, and bottom can be adjusted for the perfect crop.

Circle - This is a tight circular frame.

  • On mmhmm Studio, you can select the color of your pointer by clicking the down arrow next to the Pointer button and selecting your preferred color.
  • Click and hold down the mouse button to draw with your laser on the mmhmm stage. The trail you make with your cursor won't disappear until you let go.
