Download and Install

Get the app

If you haven't already, download and install Nimagna to get started. 

You can download the app from our download page.

Launch the app

When launching the Nimagna app for the first time you have to register yourself as a user. The onboarding process will automatically guide you through the necessary steps to start using the Nimagna app.

On Mac, the Nimagna app asks for some permissions. Review the requirements and watch a short video in this FAQ entry.

Get Started

How to use the Nimagna app

Watch this 2 minute video to see how easy it is to use the Nimagna app.

Add content to the storyboard

Add your content, such as Powerpoint presentations, PDFs, images, videos, screen shares, or cameras by using the buttons on the left.

All content appears in the storyboard on the bottom and can be rearranged using drag and drop, duplicated, hidden, etc.

Go on Air

Use Nimagna with Teams, Zoom, etc.

Nimagna is compatible with many video meeting and streaming apps, such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, Google Hangouts, Hopin, ... During the onboarding process, we show you how to setup the video output of the Nimagna app in your video meeting or streaming tool.

Simply select "Nimagna Camera" as the camera device settings of your video tool such as Teams, Zoom, etc. There is no need to change anything on the audio setup.

After a final dialog in the onboarding process that shows you the most important features of the app, a new show will automatically be opened.

Start your show

Once your story is ready, switch to Presenter View using the green button labeled Present on the top right.

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. Or use your gestures to control the show by enabling gesture control in the Content menu.

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. With an appropriate presentation remote you can assign those shortcuts to button long-presses.


Become an Expert

Tune your Show

Use the Show configuration to instruct Nimagna's AI-driven Director how your show should look like. Select a preset, e.g. the traditional "Townhall meeting" or the fast-paced "TikTok video" or create your own style.

You can also select your preferred stage to present on.

Set up 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.

Best results are achieved with camera(s) approximately on eye level.

You should place your secondary camera at an 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. On Mac and with an iPhone this is very easy using Continuity Camera.

Ensure you are well captured by your camera(s)

Make sure that you are occupying most of the frame in the live video preview to be appropriately scaled within Nimagna and that neither feet nor your head gets cut off. During the show, you can of course move your head, upper body or move around in your room.

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