Editors' Review

by   / November 06, 2014

WebcamMax adds thousands of high-quality effects to your webcam feeds. It can record and edit video, too.

Pros

Default cam: During setup, we could associate WebcamMax with a dozen different apps and authorize it to handle other, unspecified webcam applications. You can modify settings in Advanced Options.

Virtual webcam: WebcamMax handles multiple webcams but works without one, too. It can display videos, still images, and other feeds in your apps and chat sessions.

Multiple feeds and PiP: You can display multiple feeds using Picture-in-Picture (PiP). For instance, you can chat and monitor another feed in the PiP window or show a video to a friend while chatting in PiP.

Effects: WebcamMax's Effects menu includes backgrounds, scenes, frames, filters, distortions, animations, and much more. We could doodle on feeds; add Flash, pictures, and text; and configure multiple effects.

Cons

Freeware competition: WebcamMax isn't expensive, but freeware with similar capabilities (though perhaps fewer effects) gives it stiff competition.

Bottom Line

If your webcam is active every day, WebcamMax is a better value, but occasional users might prefer a free app -- even a less capable one.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of WebcamMax 7.8.7.6.
