Now you can use Webcam images as Backgrounds

26 February 2021

This week I have added a feature nobody was asking for, but I thought would be fun. Webcam background images.

The idea is that you can take photos with your webcam and then animate on top of them. This means you could draw little cartoons of people dancing on your face, of paint your emotions, or take photos of ‘things’ you own and animate on them.

The possibilities are endless, and now I’ve added this it opens the possibilities for other new features in the future.

To use the webcam backgrounds you should go to the background settings menu (the little image icon next to the play button), and select Use your Webcam option. You will then need to give Brush Ninja access to use your webcam. Then strije a pose, and snap away.

I hope you enjoy this new feature as much as I do!
