WebcamMax adds thousands of fun effects and gags to your webcam stream in real-time. Similar to some of the free software which comes pre-installed with your webcam, WebcamMax is an extension of that type of application which literally adds many new effects where your free version left off.
The difference between what we tried with ArcSoft Webcam Companion and WebcamMax is that the latter contains many more effects and also provides additional tools such as streaming without your webcam turned on by providing you with a virtual webcam, allowing you to share your funky webcam stream on YouTube and while doing so, providing access to a painting tool similar to MS Paint.
WebcamMax works with virtually any program or instant messenger which uses your Webcam and new effects are easily downloaded from the developer's web site.
Installation note: The installer of this program may offer to install third-party adware and change or modify browser settings such as homepage and default search engine.
Webcam Max is licensed as Shareware for the Windows operating system / platform from webcam tools and can be used as a free trial until the trial period ends (after an unspecified number of days). The Webcam Max 188.8.131.52 demo is available to all software users as a free download (Shareware) with potential restrictions and is not necessarily the download of the full version.
Compatibility with this software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from CoolwareMax.
