using iPhone as video camera

  It's easy for me to set things up so SF10 records what's on my iPhone. I'm looking for something a bit different. I have an older iMac and the video camera on it is quite poor: especially where my desk is located. However, my iPhone takes great video in the same room. I tried recording video of me via the iPhone. It records ... but .. I see everything in the camera app: it literally records the screen. So I'm getting a lot more than me.

Is there some way to capture the video from the iPhone that's just video (i.e. not all the settings one also sees in the Camera app)? I'm probably missing something very simple. Or perhaps there's another app that will let me do this. I'd rather avoid trying to sync up iPhone video with SF timeline after recording.

Many thanks in advance.

    Reubcubate Camo Studio should work. The Pro version is about $40/yr though. Free version is still usable if you don't mind the limitations.

  • CraigS  and others: I just did a quick test with Camo. I've set it up. I select Camo as one of my recording devices within SF10. But the end result does not include the Camo camera. Strangely if I select both Camo and iPhone then the iPhone option comes across, but not Camo. Does anyone know how to set up with SF10? 

    On the other hand, Camo works fine with Zoom. I must be missing "something" in all of this. Hopefully there are some other Camo users out there.

  • Okay, it must just have been some sort of startup glitch. I went back a version to SF9 and it worked fine. Then I swapped to SF10 and now all works fine also. Must have been user error on my part.
