Guncam Sig Maker Help
The Sig Maker is currently in beta, so if it you find any bugs, make sure to
email Growler Software.
There are three steps to creating a sig image:
Open the background image
Place video on image and set its size
Export the video
Open Background Image - This option enables the user to open a jpeg file
(.jpg), or a bitmap file (.bmp) for use in the sig image. This background image
forms the base of the sig image.
Click here for example.
Place and size video - Once a background image is opened, the user will
be able to place the video on the image. When this option is selected, the
video will automatically be placed over the background. The user can move the
video to any location on the background by placing the mouse cursor over the
video, clicking on the mouse button, and then dragging the video to the desired
The user can also resize the video by placing the mouse cursor over the right
edge or bottom edge of the video, pressing down on the button, and then
dragging to the desired size.
Export Sig - Once the video is properly placed and sized over the
background image, you are ready to create a sig file. When this option is
selected, Guncam will create an animated GIF for you to preview. If you like
it, you can choose to save it. If the file is too big, you can reduce its size
by reducing the image quality, or by reducing the 'frames per second' option.
Quality - This option changes the quality of the image. A higher quality
will produce better images, but larger files. A lower quality will produce
smaller files, but the image won't look as nice
Frames per second - This option sets how many frames per second the image
displays. A higher number will produce smoother video, but it will also cause
the file size to be larger.
Adding effects - Use Guncam's 'Add
Effects' option before entering Sig Maker (it is located in Guncam's
Video Editor). The effects added with the 'Add
Effects' option will show on the video in the sig image.
