Hi, I´m building a MAGIC MIRROR instead of a booth..
My GUESTS will see themselves through the mirror, so I wish they did not appear on the PREVIEW screen of the webcam, is this possible?
I buyed a premium licence.

    I must not understand your question.... ???

    I am thinking you have the Boxes on the left that hold the photos taken and that is what you want to be turned off... That is done in the Screen Settings Ctrl+2 check the Preview Only and they will be gone.
    If Not... Can you send a screen shot of what you are talking about and tell me what you want not to be seen.

    You can use the screen overlay feature to create an image that covers the
    video window. But the video window frame will still show.

    Hi John

    Remember me? Well, your tip about screen overlay doesn´t worked so well...
    I made a DARK picture to cover the video window and worked fine, but when I
    printed the photo.. guess what... the photo cames DARK too, obviuosly :)

    Look at my project and you will understand a little bit more:

    My project is a mirror... instead of a booth, the webcamera is hidden
    behind a mirror, and the people don´t must to see the video from the
    webcam, just the image from the mirror reflection, understand?

    This could be perfectly resolved for me if the Spark software has one more
    option like this:

    This option will marked on in standard... When I checked out this option,
    the video window will not appear when the photo session begin...

    Can you discuss my request with the developer team, please, to see if its

    Thanks for your kindly attencion and sorry my bad english :)

    You do not want the overlay to "Apply to photo", see attached screenshot.
    If you "Apply to photo", it will composite the overlay image to the photo.

    True, I had not seen this option, thank you!

    But even so, the frame of the video still appears, and this will confuse my
    guests even more ... if there was a way she would not show up, it would be

    ​Can you help in this feature?​

    Can you try

    There is a "None" theme in that version that you can select in the Start
    Screen settings (press ctrl-2). Also that version works better for Portrait
    monitors, go to Settings (press ctrl-1) > Premium > General > Photo Sizes >
    select "Portrait".

    There is a Mirror Booth mode coming in a future update, but those settings
    should help for what you are trying to do for now.
