Introduction Guide for CameraFi Live


Hi, this is the CameraFi Live team.


In the latest update, the design of CameraFi Live has changed.


Let’s find out what each icon means and how you can use CameraFi Live features in this new update!






HOME SCREEN



On the home screen, you can choose a Camera / Screen mode, and which platform to broadcast.



1. Choose between a Camera or Screen mode.

  • Camera: live streaming with a smartphone camera or external camera equipment. Ex) Vlog

  • Screen: Screen streaming of games, apps, etc. Ex) Mobile game streaming.

2. Select platform to broadcast. Ex) YouTube, Facebook, Twitch


3. Click the START button.



Then, you will move to the main screen.








MAIN SCREEN



After selecting the camera mode, the platform, and clicking on START, you will go to the main screen.


From now on, I would like to share icons you can find on the main screen.





Firstly, let’s start with the icons on the top:


  • Profile Image: the profile image of the channel you will broadcast

  • Change Camera: switch between front/back camera, wide-angle camera, etc.

  • Mic: adjust the volume of the microphone or monitor the audio, and adjust the zoom function using the volume key.



Then, what are the icons on the bottom?


  • Widgets: add streaming widgets like animated effects and web-based source

- Effects: apply animated graphic effects such as the scoreboard, etc.

      - Web: add streaming widgets from platforms such as Streamlabs.

  • Filter: use various camera filters such as mosaic, black & white, etc.

  • Multiple shots: create multiple scenes like you use several cameras only with a smartphone camera



So far, we've looked at the icons that you can see on the main screen and their functions.


Now, let’s see where to find and how to use the modified features and the various video editing tools.





SWIPE MENU




You are curious to see how the signature display menu (swipe menu) of CameraFi Live was changed. Right?

If you swipe slightly to left, you can set features on the menu.





  • Video: You can add the internal camera of your smartphone, USB external camera, video, and image files. You can use the PIP(Picture-in-Picture) as well.


  • Audio: Select the audio sources to be used in your live stream. This allows you to add audio and voice/recording files from your smartphone microphone (or a wired microphone or a Bluetooth microphone connected to the smartphone). Or, you can add audio and voice/recording files from USB camera devices.


  • IMAGE: You can add a logo image of your live stream or an image file that you want to add to your broadcast screen.


  • TEXT: You can use subtitles, notices, or text-based memos for your broadcast.


  • EFFECT: It is the smiling-emoji icon at the bottom left corner of the main screen, where you can add many different creative effects.


  • WEB: it is the globe-shaped icon at the bottom left corner of the main screen that allows you to add web-based sources to your live stream.


  • CHAT: Chat history (comments) of the broadcast can be displayed in the video.


  • PRESET: You can add and save various overlays as a preset so that you can bring them back to the screen in the next streaming for faster broadcasting preparation.


*You can check the manuals that explain how to use each feature by clicking on each feature name.
