Trent from Australia
ManyCam

Trent is a video teacher and he wants to do live Chroma Key with green screen with his kids. How can he do that more affordably? Leo says that lighting is everything. He'll want to be sure the lighting is smooth and even, and doesn't cast a shadow on his green screen. Then he can use software like ManyCam. It works great, according to the chatroom. Wirecast is another option, and it is 30% off for Black Friday.

Chris from Ohio
Switcher Studio

Chris needs an app to create a live stream on a budget. Leo just saw a great tool on both Android and iOS that uses camera phones and Wi-Fi to connect and then uses one device to act as a switcher. He should check out Switcher Studio. It does just that, but it's currently iOS only. Cinemaker is another one. It also is just for iOS, but the Android version is coming soon. Chris could also look into Manycam.
