Cam Video Cropping

Some cameras capture a pretty wide field of view and can see background objects that you might not want in the frame. It would be nice to be able to crop out the edges of the capture by ctrl/alt dragging the borders to constrain the capture to a smaller area.

Here’s an example of what I’m referring to. My camera is capturing outside the edges of my green screen and I want to crop the video to keep it constrained within those edges.The only way I can find to do this with ManyCam is by zooming in, but that has negative affects on the video quality.

Hi @MagellanTX,

Welcome to the ManyCam community. Sounds great, we’ll look into this and get back to you if we have any questions. Thank you for posting the idea.

Great idea! I’d find cropping very useful too :+1::slightly_smiling_face:

This would be useful to me.

I would love that feature as well. For me, it would make the program almost perfect. Also, it needs to be able to crop in a non-ratio constrained way. For example, If I want a portrait crop of the middle 3rd of the window, that’s what I would want.

I’ve found I am unable to repace the whole background with an image. In your case you look like you
are just placing yourself over the top of a gaming screen.

The other thing that would be good is to enable masks so that when using the chroma key you will be able to fill the whole 16:9 background with an image. Currently the selected image is only filling the chroma key area and not the whole screen area, because my green screen is not wide enough also.

In your example, two rectangular masks, one on each side that extend the green screen to the boundary. Or one simple crop area and anything outside that crop area is also considered green screen.

I would be much happier with Manycam 7 if it had this support.

This is the feature I need and will pay for life time today

It would be great. I need it too
