Webcam Panel

Posted on 02. Aug, 2011 by in Blog

In the LIVE! sessions I started to do some time ago I used to put a live feed from my camera onto the screen along with my desktop. I always thought that doing so would also increase the “friendly” factor of my tutorials, but I never got around to do it. Until now.

Since more and more people were asking me how I was putting my face onto my desktop and broadcast that I thought it would be really cool, if I had a webcam panel for my After Effects. I used a different technique for my LIVE broadcasts, however I finally got around to do a proper panel, so now I can even do regular tutorials with my lovely face in them.
I provide the Webcam Panel as a free download for all you tutorial guys out there. If you want to use it please remember to shut down all other webcam applications that might be “linked” to your default camera. Also – you will need to go into the Flash Player Settings (accessible by right clicking on any flash content and choosing “Settings”) and set the Global Settings for the “local” website to “always allow”. Once that is done simply extract the contents of the ZIP file into the “Scripts/ScriptUI Panels” directory. Enjoy.

    Hi.

    It has been a long time you were here.
    Glad you are back.

    That script would be great, but on my mac it does not work. Only a white rectangle. And I cannot go into the flash-settings.
    To bad. That would be very funny…

    Thanks Jerzy, hope to see some tuts soon. I’m sure that by this stage you’ve probably written an expression that composites an entire cg/live action movie on one layer!
