Limited Functionality


No option to simply rotate or flip horizontal/vertical.
Not even under “Advanced” settings.
This should be a basic setting.
This feature would make it 5 stars for me.

No zoom for iMac FaceTime camera


I just purchased this application for my new iMac. Unfortunately, I didn’t read the fine print. There is no zoom function for a fixed camera - not even a digital zoom (which is what I thought I was buying). Very dissappointing application.



I installed this on an older MacBook running OS 10.6. It worked well with a Creative C920 webcam and QuickTIme player.
