Using Webcam Backgrounds and Filters

Jigsaw has made it easy to apply a background, overlay, or effect to your webcam using one of several free (or inexpensive) options.  Here are a few we have tested and know work with webcams within a Jigsaw session.  Click the name of the software to go to the website for that application.

ChromaCam

This application is available free or as an inexpensive "lifetime" version.  It is simple to use.

1. Once installed, open the application and select the background/filter of your choice.

2. In the Jigsaw session (or on the Landing Page before entering the session), simply select "Chromacam" as your camera.

3. When you apply that camera, you will see it in your Jigsaw session.

4. You can keep the ChromaCam window open and switch backgrounds without making any further changes in Jigsaw.

 

ManyCam

ManyCam also has free and lifetime versions available.  There is a bit more work involved to use ManyCam, but it does have a lot of flexibility. 

1. Start the app and choose the borders, backgrounds, objects, etc. you wish you use.  You can choose many at the same time, layer them, and create more complex camera moods or environments, if you are the creative type.

2. In the Jigsaw session (or on the Landing Page before entering), simply select "ManyCam" as your camera.

3. When you apply that camera, you will now see it in your Jigsaw session.

Snap Camera

Do you want to have some fun??  Snap Camera is more appropriate for relaxed environments and has more facial effects than full backgrounds.  But, its head/face tracking and camera technology is one of the best!  You can install it for free and use it when everyone needs some comic relief.  It is also very simple to use!

 

1. Start the App and choose the “Lens” of your choice.

2. In my Jigsaw session (or on the Landing Page before entering), simply select "Snap Camera" as your camera.

3. Apply that Camera choice, and you are now Grogu/Baby Yoda (or the character/lens filter of your choice)!

Other Options

Essentially, any of these apps, set themselves up as a virtual camera. Simply select the one of your choice as your camera in Jigsaw, and you are set!
