YouCam note Using Avatars

Note: you can create your own custom avatars in the Avatar Creator. See Using the Avatar Creator for more information. * this feature is not available in some versions of CyberLink YouCam.

  1. Position your face in the center of the webcam preview window.
  2. Select the YouCam avatar23 Using Avatars tab.
  3. Select the desired avatar to turn it on.

Helpful tips:

  • there should be adequate distance between your face and the webcam (30 – 45 cm).
  • once the avatar is turned on, hold your head still for about 5 seconds so the software can properly calibrate and recognize your facial features.
  • a well-lit environment is required for the avatar effect to work properly.
  • for best results when using avatars, ensure the video size is between 320×240 and 640×480. See Capture resolution in Capture Settings for more information.
