Sendspark supports virtual backgrounds, background blur, and other camera effects to ensure you look polished and professional — no matter where you're recording from!
Supported Camera Effects in Sendspark
Sendspark supports the following video effects:
How to Use Virtual Backgrounds
To use Camera Effects, first, launch the Sendspark Chrome extension. If you do not have the Chrome extension yet, please install it here.
Then, make sure Camera Effects is enabled on your account. To enable Camera Effects, please...
Launch the Sendspark Chrome Extension
Click on the "Settings" icon
Toggle "Camera Effects" to "on." Here, you can decide if you would like to use Camera Effects when recording with "both" your camera and screen, or just your "camera only."
To use Camera Effects going forward, select the sparkle icon on the top right of your camera bubble to launch the Cam Effects modal.
From the camera effects modal, you have several options...
I. Blur Background
Select the first option to blur your background.
You will see a faint purple outline around the selected camera effect, and you can preview how this will look in the camera bubble in the middle of the screen.
Simply close the Cam Effects modal to see your new effect while recording.
II. Use a Virtual Background
We provide several virtual backgrounds for you to choose from. Do you want an office background, clean space, or bright color? Take your pick!
How to Enhance Your Appearance
Click into the "Appearance" tab on your Cam Effects modal to see other available camera effects.
I. Touch Up Appearance
You can subtly enhance your appearance with the "touch up appearance" slider. Move this to 0 to have no appearance, and all of way to 100 to have the maximum enhancement.
II. Mirror Camera
To flip your camera, simply click on the "mirror my appearance" toggle. This will let you see the reverse of yourself (which most people prefer to look at for themselves).
How to Remove Camera Effects
If you no longer wish to use your camera effect, you can simply click on the "Remove Background" icon in the top left of the Cam Effects modal.
This will remove the virtual background from your camera view. Simply close the modal to save your changes.
