  • Effects – Color overlays and filters that you can add to jazz up your stage presence.

In mmhmm, you can select from several Frame options, which can be useful to isolate your face from the rest of your body and background as well as showcase your actual background while presenting slides
  • Opacity   In mmhmm, you can be transparent (the background shows through your image) or opaque (normal, like the solid you really are) or anything in between. Make it easier for people to focus on your slides by fading your image into the background.

  • Shared videos – A special type of recording in mmhmm that provides a higher degree of interactivity to the audience viewing it. This type of recording is not saved locally on your machine, instead, it is uploaded to mmhmm TV so that the recording URL can be shared easily with your audience. Learn more about shared videos on mmhmm TV.
  • Slide – Information that is displayed during a presentation, usually to enhance understanding of the topic at hand. This supporting media can take many forms in mmhmm: images, videos, screen shares, and even audio. Learn more about slides.
  • Stage – Your selected room, slides, and your presenter image combined. This is the picture in mmhmm that your audience sees. 
  • Threshold – This setting controls the edge-detection between you and your green screen.

  • Virtual camera A software camera. We combine your webcam image with mmhmm’s visual effects to create a new, “virtual” output. The mmhmm virtual camera can be selected, like any other camera, in your video conference application. See how you can set up your camera with Zoom and other web-based apps.
  • Watermark An identifying logo, signature, or design added to a work that names the owner or tool used to author it. The mmhmm logo watermark is shown on presentations but can be turned off if desired.
