Introduction

It's surprising that the vast majority of webcams are sold without any software to actually publish it's output to the web!

at32 Comedy Webcam is free and does just this by one of three methods:
  • Making your computer act like a webserver, so other people can see your webcam in their webbrowser
  • Uploading to an FTP site
  • Saving to hard disk for publishing either by your own FTP server, http server, archiving or other roles
  • In all cases, the software has minimal impact on your system with low CPU and memory overhead.

    However, we realised most people aquired their webcam for a bit of fun - so we decided to have a little fun of our own, and after a lengthy development period created this software which includes over 50 amusing effects!

    Special Effects Extravaganza

    The addition of post-processing effects is centered around the Effects Master. This breaks the effects up into different groups, allows you to combine and put them into processing order to achieve unlimited combinations of different results, and finally allows you to adjust the amplitude of each effect.

    The effects are broken up as follows:
  • Superimposed Effect - Known as the "blue screen", you can replace part of the background of your webcam's output with another image - e.g. this is how many weather reports superimpose the presenter on a computer generated weather map.
  • Overlays - Overlay bitmaps on top of the image, choose transparency color keys and choose an optional alpha blend. A possible use for this is to add a logo to the webcam image.
  • Captions - You can add captions and annotations to the output image.
  • Transformations - Includes various rotational, zoom, wave, and pixelation effects.
  • Split Matrix - A powerful tool that you can essentially "program" yourself to achieve a variety of other post-processing effects.
  • Filters - Includes regular brightness and contrast functions, as well as colorize, negative, hue, saturation, etc.
  • General Effects - 30 effects provided covering all sorts of roles such as blur, sharpen, TV display emulation, emboss and the bizarre scatter effects.

  • Basic Image Features

    Aside from a full list of each effect, the regular summarised feature list is as follows:
  • Post-processing image resize from source, allows you to create huge wallpaper scenes or tiny thumbnails if you need to!
  • Choose output JPEG image quality
  • Automatically schedule software to update either a set number of seconds, or on demand
  • Option to archive all output images
  • Zoom in on a limited area or simply publish small segments
  • Publish and process results from not just webcams, but TV cards, DV cameras and other sources

  • Other Processing Functions

    These are in addition to the regular post-processing effects list and cover many extra miscellaneous roles.
  • Attractive date/time stamp which can have a user-defined format, size, font, blended color and alpha blend
  • Solid border, bevel border and plain framing.
  • Blend Frames - useful for creating lengthy timed exposures or simply more dramatic motion blurs. Supports several boolean operators.
  • Flips and perpendicular rotates
  • Various preview functions

  • Publishing Options

  • The program can become a HTTP server of it's own, allowing users to view your webcam via a browser!
  • Alternativly you can upload using the traditional method to an FTP server
  • The third option allows the program to write to hard disk, where the resultant image can be used by your own HTTP or FTP server or for post processing of your own.
  • Archiving is also supported.

  • HTTP Features

  • Supports unlimited connections, bandwidth permitting
  • Either display the image directly, or provide a HTTP webpage that will automatically refresh the webcam output
  • Ability to edit the HTTP webpage so you can customize it's display, or integrate it into a website (this is also supported with the FTP alternative).

  • FTP Features

  • FTP routine will connect, upload then disconnect as required
  • Automatic creation and uploading of a simple webpage containing your image - this can be edited at a later date
  • Option to FTP automatically every few seconds, automatically when program starts, or simply on demand
  • Multiple threaded sessions possible
  • Upload frequency capped - if you specify a high upload frequency but network performance drops, the software will not open an excess number of uploading threads
  • Option to upload to a temporary file first then rename, or upload directly
  • Passive mode supported
  • Full socks support
