Magic Camera is a free tool that allows users to enhance their webcam chatting experience with the aid of different options and tweaks that are available. There is a paid version of the application but the free one is almost as good as the premium one. The standard version of the tool applies a watermark on the video stream and it also constantly features a nag screen that can be closed by the user if he feels bothered by it. The installation process of the application is simple and the customization options appear only in the actual software app.
The interface of the application has not been designed to be too catchy, but users that want something useful might not complain about the design of the tool itself. There are some renders that can be added on the camera and they are various, but they could benefit from a better texture quality. However, they are still interesting to use and people might find them more than funny. The application is able to make use of different webcams connected to the computer and the user can choose any of them in order to launch the video stream using it.
There are twelve different types of effects available, some of them being masks, backgrounds, filters and distortions applied to the image that is provided by the webcam. Overall, they are interesting, even if not all of them will be actually used while chatting, they are still some fun additions. There are also some useful tools though, and one of them offers the possibility of importing a video stream into the signal of the web camera. This can be useful in order to show someone else a presentation or something similar, and the quality of the video is pretty good, allowing high resolutions.
