CamTwist for Mac

Download.com Staff Aug 7, 2013

CamTwist for Mac allows users to add filters and make changes to their video chat systems. Its extensive features and easy-to-use interface work well, despite its lack of support for iChat.

After installing easily, the program introduces a main menu that is relatively easy to interpret for all but the most inexperienced Mac users. The menu contains five windows with distinct information. The left sidebar allows the user to select the video source and automatically shows applications and the Webcam, itself. Next to this is a menu of effects that can be applied. This list is extensive and contains options like black and white, inverting colors, and halos, among many others. A button at the bottom of the window allows these effects to be added into a settings window, where they can be saved for future use. Once the user creates the setup they want, CamTwist for Mac applies them to the selected program. Some of these features are available in the applications, themselves, such as with the Webcam, but the program conveniently places them in one location.

As a program meant to create effects in video chats and when using Webcams, CamTwist for Mac works adequately and includes a large number of available features. It is suitable for users who frequently video chat and wish to enhance their experience.
