How to switch between webcam and screen capture with fade-in fade-out effects using ScreenCamera.Net

Due to ScreenCamera.Net’s layer-by-layer technology objects get stacked up one on top of the other so you must have one FXS of type monitor on the video output and one FXS of type webcam on the video output and in order to switch from one to the other all you have to do is make one invisible and the other gets shown and vice-versa. That is the basics without animation of fade-in and fade-out.

To create the effect of fade-in fade-out you must create a second key-frame on your monitor FXS and your webcam FXS, let’s say on frame #50 and a third key-frame say on frame #100, so for both effects you will have transparency level 0 (zero) at frame #1 and on frame #50 you set the transparency to 100% and on frame #100 you set the transparency back to 0. This way when you want the webcam to fade-out you simply play the FXS from key-frame #50 to #100 and stop, the same goes to the desktop monitor and besides being simple it looks really professional and state-of-the-art for those participating on the video conference. It can definitely gain you points regarding presentation skills.

Learn how it is done step-by-step on the tutorial video bellow.
