I'm not sure if this is even possible. But, could Sparkbooth (someday) have the ability to allow us to tweak the exposure, brighness, iso etc from within Sparkbooth? Especially for webcam or onboard cameras?

It would be nice to be able to tweak the c920 settings without having to minimize it and go into the Logitech software.

    Harry,

    This can be done using the Logitech Camera Controller
    NOW as I too use the c920 and I can show you...

    First you need to download the c920 Controller software
    from the Logitech web site - NOT THE CAPTURE software

    Then when you open Sparkbooth with the Controller software
    installed, the Controller window will open and you can make
    Advanced adjustments.
    see video attached

    Thank you Joe. I use the Logitech software all the time. I was hoping these tweaking of settings could be down from within sparkbooth without having to go into the Logitech software.

    Yes, I read your complete message
    It would be nice to be able to tweak the c920 settings without having to minimize it and go into the Logitech software.

    and I am showing you how easy it is to make the changes
    using the Logitech Controller software - even though
    you need to Minimize the SB window (that only takes a ESC key press)
    and the controller software can be left in the back top left corner
    of your screen for easy access for any quick changes.

    My video example only took me 1 minute and 8 seconds
    so I would say that is quick enough without causing
    any major delay during an event...

    Thank you Joe.

    Maybe I should have made my post or clarify. I guess what I’m getting at is the new surface pro six and seven has outstanding onboard cameras. But there is no way to tweak any of the settings because there’s no software to go with them. If there was a way to do that within spark booth it would be fantastic. That’s the direction I think the industry is going. More on board cameras.

    I doubt I will be able to add those settings into Sparkbooth. Every webcam
    is different and there is no common interface for that across all webcams

    That would require that Sparkbooth has permission to alter the in camera software in order to be able to make adjustments in the camera settings... it would be almost impossible for John to get permission from all the Mfg's ... but doesn't hurt to ask here.

    Is there any menu settings within the computer to make these adjustments?
    Maybe there could be a way for you to do the same as I do with the Logitech software...?
