Logitech has had software for its webcams for a while now which let you adjust settings to your liking but it wasn’t being used to its fullest extent until now. With Logitech Capture, the company aims to simplify video production by incorporating professional controls in an easy-to-use app. With the new app, you’ll be able to customize and create content within the application itself.
While this software is in beta, there are also only specific webcams that are currently supported: the Logitech C920, C922 (which we previously reviewed), and BRIO 4K Pro webcams. Logitech Capture is supported by Windows 7 and above.
Logitech Capture has some nice features such as:
- Multi-source recording: Capture webcam video and your desktop screen, or two webcams simultaneously for creating picture-in-picture content. Then use Capture to arrange your picture-in-picture frames.
- Vertical video capture: Record in 9:16 format for a portrait viewing experience optimized for mobile phones and social media posts.
- Stream to Youtube: Capture acts as a virtual camera so you can stream directly from the app to YouTube without having to use a complex encoder. You’ll keep access to all the editing and customization options in Capture during your stream.
- Studio controls: Enable ChromaKey recording, apply filters, adjust transition effects, and change the size and color of borders. Capture also allows you to take still images and adjust mic input volume without leaving the app.
- Camera customization: Select your field of view, aspect ratio, and recording resolution. Advanced users can also adjust white-balance, auto-focus, and frames-per-second settings.
Remember that with this still in beta, there will be bugs. Logitech is well aware of them and is doing what they can to squash them. If you’re interested in trying out the beta, you can download it here.
