Camo 1.2.0.127 released

macOS iOS · 1 feature 1 improvement 4 fixes

We're thrilled to be shipping Camo Studio 1.2 today. It introduces a big new feature: high quality audio support. Camo Studio now lets you choose between the different microphones your iOS devices have, and to use them in stereo where supported by your device. We've seen this compare very favourably to some of the external mics we've been testing with.

For this feature to appear in Camo Studio, an iOS app update is required. Apple have approved it for release, and it should appear for you in the App Store over the next few hours.

If you run into any problems, please reach out to us at support@reincubate.com. We'd love to help and hear from you.

Camo 1.1.0.110 released

macOS iOS · 3 features 8 improvements 4 fixes

We're thrilled to be releasing Camo Studio 1.1. This update paves the way for a number of features which will be enabled with a subsequent update of the Camo iOS app.

Once you've installed this update, you'll need to restart any apps using Camo's video on your Mac. If you run into any problems, please reach out to us at support@reincubate.com. We'd love to help and hear from you.

We've pushed audio support to 1.2, and we're expecting to ship that hot on the heels of this release. It looks — and sounds — great. Camo Studio for Windows is now in its 8th beta. If you're interested in trying it out, you can get on the list here.

  • Feature Portrait mode preview. Look out for an update coming soon in the App Store to enable this.
  • Feature Camo's status menu now shows a list of apps consuming video from Camo.
  • Feature We've added new -install and -uninstall options for command-line users. Usage of these is documented in our FAQ.
  • Improvement We've reworked the focus UI to make it easier to use, and clearer as to what it's doing. Some lenses don't support manual focus, and the Studio UI now reflects this.
  • Improvement We've rearranged how we group controls in order make Camo Studio's layout clearer. Collapsed sections stay collapsed.
  • Improvement Camo for iOS now indicates camera feature availability, which Camo Studio uses to selectively enable controls.
  • Improvement Separate British vs American English translations. We get the "z"s right. This is paving the way for full translation, coming soon.
  • Improvement Scrolling the preview is now smoother for trackpad users.
  • Improvement Camo Studio will now detect when the password prompt can be skipped and do so (ie. if you're running with sudo).
  • Improvement Default settings are now more sensible for some adjustments.
  • Improvement Pan control now uses actual frame aspect ratio (as opposed to the user's selected resolution, which ignored rotation).
  • Fix Users of Big Sur are no longer prompted each time for an installation password when running Camo Studio.
  • Fix We've resolved a number of issues with auto-focus.
  • Fix We no longer reset the focus when users click on the grey area outside of the preview, or on the sidebar.
  • Fix Stock presets now reset exposure settings.

Camo 1.0.8.83 released

macOS iOS · 1 feature 1 improvement 5 fixes

We're really excited to be shipping Camo 1.0.8 today. This includes a number of optimisations, fixes, and a big new feature: presets. Camo Studio includes a set of stock presets for all users to try out and experiment with.

This version of Camo Studio requires the latest version of Camo from the App Store to work: don't update this until you've updated your iOS device. If you run into any problems, please reach out to us at support@reincubate.com. We'd love to help and hear from you.

In the meantime, our work towards 1.1 continues, and things are looking good. Camo Studio for Windows is currently in its third beta, and it looks — and works — great. If you're interested in trying it out, you can get on the list here.

  • Fix We've resolved a problem whereby some macOS 10.14 users would run into disconnect problems or experience memory leaks.

Camo 1.0.6.63 released

macOS iOS · 4 improvements 4 fixes

We've been hard at work on Camo over the last few weeks, getting closer our major 1.1 update. In the meantime, we've prepared this update to make Camo Studio more intuitive, and to resolve a small number of issues. We've not forgotten about presets, either — we want to make sure we get them just right, and they're not. Yet.

If you run into any problems, please reach out to us at support@reincubate.com. We'd love to help and hear from you.

  • Improvement We've added compatibility notes for another 8 apps: CloudApp, Pearl, Pexip, Hand Mirror, Wirecast, RingCentral, YouTube and Panopto. We support 7 of those 8: if you know anyone at Panopto, please drop them a note on our behalf. Compatibility notes have been updated for Camtasia, and for QuickTime on Big Sur.
  • Improvement Camo Studio's "Help" button is now called "Help & Integrations". It looks a bit less flash, but it's easier to find!
  • Improvement We note that some USB hubs can cause connection issues in Camo Studio's main screen. More here.
  • Improvement It was only 6 versions ago we wrote that a competitor copied the ID we use for Camo Studio, preventing it from working whilst both were installed. It's happened again. The price of being popular, eh? We've updated our ID again.
  • Fix We've resolved a problem where older devices running iOS 12 (particularly the iPhone 5s, iPad Mini 2, and iPad Air 1) could encounter half of the image being chopped off. This version of Camo Studio includes a fix for that, but you'll need an updated version of Camo on your iOS device. That version (1.0.6) will be made available to our beta testers today, and should go live to all users later this week assuming that beta goes well.
  • Fix The "Help" link in the Camo Studio installation dialog didn't go to the right place. Sorry. We've fixed that.
  • Fix We've resolved a bug in Camo Studio that could crash it in unusual cases.
  • Fix We've fixed an even less common bug which could cause strange image corruption. We didn't have a single user report of this, so possibly we only managed to trigger it in the lab. 🤷‍♂️

Camo 1.0.5.60 released

macOS iOS · 2 improvements 1 fix

Another day, another Camo Studio update. This update is preparing us for an update to the iOS app that's coming soon. It also updates compatibility information for 10 apps.

If you run into any problems, please reach out to us at support@reincubate.com. We'd love to help and hear from you.

  • Improvement Camo Studio is now much clearer about what to do if you connect an iOS device running a version of Camo that's too old or too new.
  • Improvement We've added compatibility information for Camtasia, Flipgrid, Stream.club, Tuple, Zoho Meeting, Jio Meet, Meet Butter, and Macro. We support most of these — if you use one we don't support, please reach out to them!
  • Fix We've noted QuickTime in Big Sur's latest beta doesn't support Camo Studio. We're working on this. We've also dropped compatibility with Skype for Business. We can't make it work consistently for enough users yet.

Camo 1.0.1.53 released

macOS iOS · 1 fix

Camo's gone live, hurray! Thanks to an army of beta testers.
