With Nimagna, you are freed to move, gesture and speak naturally to connect to your audience without distraction.

If you just want to get started, check out the guide below.

If you need help with something specific, take a look at the FAQs or get in touch.

Get the app

If you haven't already, download and install Nimagna for Windows to get started. You can download the app from our downloads page.

 

Setup your camera(s)

For the best possible output use an external USB camera that you place for example on top of your monitor. If you only have an integrated webcam at hand put your laptop on a stand so that the camera is at or above eye level.

You should place your secondary camera at a small angle of between 30° and 45° to the main camera, either left or right of your first camera. Use a tripod or a clip to put it at or above eye level. If you want to use your mobile device as a secondary camera, have a look at this FAQ entry.

 

Launch the app

When launching the Nimagna app for the first time you will have to register. The onboarding process will automatically guide you through the main steps to setup the Nimagna app.

 

Configure your camera(s)

First, you configure your cameras. Select the camera(s) to be used and set their framing and location. The live video preview shows you a silhouette. Make sure that you are fully within that silhouette for appropriate framing during your show.

You might have to reposition and slightly tilt your cameras to fit into the silhouettes. Have a look at this FAQ entry to learn more about positioning your cameras, especially with full-body framing.

Start your show

Now you're doing your first show in Nimagna. Switch to Presenter View by clicking the button on the top right in the Nimagna app.

 

Join an online meeting with your favorite video meeting or streaming application. Make sure that you didn’t apply any background effects in the meeting or streaming app, such as blurring the background.

 

During the show...

To advance the slide, just hit the Page-down or Right-arrow key on your keyboard or use a presentation remote. Shot switching, reframing and camera focus will be done automatically by the Nimagna app.

To pause the automatic director you can click Shot selection Automatic at the bottom of the screen. This comes in handy when you're answering questions for example. To restart simply press Shot selection Paused. The numeric key 0 toggles between the two modes.

To focus on a particular view, click Focus on Content/Presenter/Both. The numeric keys 1, 2 and 3 are shortcuts for the respective focus shots.
