There are a few interesting options for webcam effects.
Sometimes you need to mount your webcam to a ceiling or a wall. The 'Horizontally Flipped', 'Vertically Flipped', and 'Rotation' options will help you.
The 'Image Effect > Alpha Blend' feature is a simplified version of the Watermark
feature. To enable this feature:
1. Image Effect -> on
2. Image Effect > Alpha Blend -> on
3. Image Effect > Alpha Blend > Amount -> 100
4. Image Effect > Alpha Blend > Bitmap -> image path (bmp, jpg)
5. Image Effect > Alpha Blend > Transparent -> on
The image size must be equal to the preview size. The upper left corner pixel is taken as a transparent color.
The Stacking feature is useful for recording scenes with bad lighting or for astronomy buffs. The 'Add / Divisor' blending mode allows you to get better lighting in your images. You can catch a comet or stars moving with the 'Select brightest pixel' mode.
A set of different effects that can be applied to the image.
Enable image effects.
The image will take on a bas-relief look.
Flip image along its Y axis.
Flip image along its X axis.
This property controls the rotation of the image.
The amount of rotation (in degrees).
Determine the X coordinate about which the rotation occurs.
Determine the Y coordinate about which the rotation occurs.
A set of properties that allow alpha-blending.
A number specifying how much of the image is blended with the bitmap.
The bitmap to blend the image with.
Determines whether or not to use the upper-left hand corner pixel as a transparent color.
Heavily skew towards a roughly equivalent shade of the specified color.
Paint with a bias towards that color.
Cause pixels to appear darker and lighter relative to each other.
The amount of contrast.
Convert the image to a grayscale image.
Invert every pixel to its opposite.
Positive values lighten the image, whereas negative values darken the image.
The amount of lightness.
Color intensity in the image.
The amount of saturation.
Sharpens the image.
The amount of sharpening.
Cause a somewhat artistic effect to be applied to the image.
The amount of sponge.
Softens/blurs the image.
The amount of gaussian blur.
Allows sophisticated warping effects to be applied to the image.
The amount of the overall warping.
Contain the pixels on the opposite side of the image as though the image were tiled.
The level at which the image is distorted along the X axis.
The level at which the image is distorted along the Y axis.
To increase the brightness of a webcam image the program adds several input images with a period equal to the exposition value then it divides the sum by divisor. If the divisor is 1, the result will be a standard Stacking effect. You can get an averaged image by increasing the divisor.
To get a trace of a moving object on a dark background (for example, a comet on the dark sky) use the 'Select brightest pixel' blending mode.
Quantity of all the input images.
Period between the input images.
Blending mode used to combine the images.
Specify a divisor between 1 and the number of input images.
Specify a gamma correction to avoid undesired color/brightness changes.
Set pixels in the input images to pure white or black depending on their intensity.
All pixels in the input images with an intensity of less than this value will have their intensity set to 0 (i.e. pure black) before blending.
All pixels in the input images with an intensity of more than this value will have their intensity set to 255 (i.e. pure white) before blending.
