When you chat with your family or friends via webcam, things might get a little dull, so if you want to bring the fun back into your conversations, you can use E-Cam. The application is especially created for ASUS notebooks and netbooks, so if you own such a device, you probably already have it installed by default.
The software solution can basically help you make the most out of your integrated webcam, as it can enhance the stream with illustrations or animated effects.
In other words, you can start chatting with your friends, then select one of the available animations, such as meteors, flying crows, tears, drops or fish. Additionally, you can also apply a fancy frame, depending on your preferences: childhood, spring, forest, TV, beach, autumn, love and so on (you can even choose a frame depicting your zodiac sign).
Furthermore, you can rely on E-Cam to overlay various types of effects, such as distortion ones (whirl, pinch or radiate), mirror-like one (flip, rotate, symmetrical mirror) or filters, like emboss, negative, red, contrast, bubble or noise.
Before choosing a certain animation or effect, it is best to test them all, and only afterwards should you apply the one you enjoyed best.
Additionally, E-Cam can be used to capture snapshots of the webcam stream, as well as record videos that you can send via e-mail to your friends. You can also print the images without even leaving the main window of E-Cam.
All in all, the application can help you add fun and entertaining elements to your webcam chats, as long as you use an ASUS netbook or notebook. Those who own other types of devices will need to look for a utility compatible with their hardware.
