CamTwist 2.5 became available in November 2013, but MacUpdate hasn't been updated.

You can find it at the developers site: http://camtwiststudio.com/download/

I love the flexibility that CamTwist gives users who might not have the largest video production budgets, but still care highly about production quality. I use CamTwist with LiveStream and BoinxTV and it fills roles for these quite well. I used to use it with Skype, but I am sad to say that- with the newest version of Skype- it does not work anymore.

Overall, CamTwist is a neat program, though a bit rough around the edges- the "Studio" interface could be improved- the buttons can be difficult to move around; and the video mixing environment could be better (but hey, that's what I have BoinxTV for). I would be willing to pay for a more polished version, but for a free version, it does rather well (I just wish it still worked with Skype).

Version 2.4 is available at the developer's website. Very cool, but also buggy. The automation is a disaster. For example, the Select Setup step sees only an apparently random and incomplete selection of the saved setups. Lots of problems setting up with multiple cameras too. It would be nice if the effects listing was alphabetical or otherwise sorted somehow. If using one camera, the desktop and prerecorded material, one can make some slick productions. High on features, but low on ease of use because many of the cool features don't work well or not at all. Still a good value for the working features as it is free.

Not sure how to get this to work on photo booth app. The webcam light comes on and this app shows a window of preferences is loaded, so the app must've loaded alright, but I don't see any of the effects anywhere, nor do I find a help menu or "read me" file which will explain what I might be doing wrong. I do appreciate that this app is free and apparently feature-rich. I'd just like to see it work. Hoping someone here knows the trick(s) and or steps.

If it's not compatible with iChat, what's the point? Apple's built in filters are all in iChat! This would be nicer to have built as an add-on to what's already existing in iChat. Instead, this has to be used with Yahoo? Skype? I like Skype, but in many cases iChat is best for "fun" chat. I think if Skype wants such effects they will integrate them themselves. As for Yahoo... this messenger hasn't been updated on Mac in eons. It shouldn't even be considered compatible with modern OS's. I mean... Yahoo video: No sound. Seriously? What's the point of video chat without sound? So you can type, "Hey, Bob, I can see you. Make faces!"? Good lord.

It seems YOU are missing the point. First off this it works with all major video chat apps, including google plus, facebook, chat roulette, etc. It's obvious you've never poked your tiny little head out of that iHole you live in. Not everyone uses iChat or ever will, and the developer of this application is NOT charging money for it, so why would you blast away on something you don't even know about; get life loser, and don't worry — I'll add another negative to your rating.

Do NOT download. Its messed up my SKYPE and messenger. Also concerned that when un installing it asks for your password. So dont bother as it will cause more hassle than its worth!
