PostStream sends a real video signal directly from Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere and After Effects, or Davinici Resolve into any video conferencing app that supports third party webcams*. No distracting UI elements, no stray cursors, and video colorspace support.
PostStream works by installing a number of components on your mac to mimic hardware input and output devices. To the NLEs, PostStream appears as a hardware output device. To the video conferencing apps, PostStream looks like a video camera. By connecting these various components together seamlessly, PostStream is able to send uncompressed video and audio samples directly from one app to the other, bypassing hardware interconnects or cludgy screen scraping.
We plan to continue to hone the app over the coming weeks. At the moment there are a number of known/ remaining issues to be addressed:
* Due to recent security changes, Zoom no longer natively supports third party device drivers such as PostStream as of version 4.6.8. For similar reasons, third party devices do not natively work with Slack or Apple FaceTime. Workarounds can be found for some of these applications online.
