Use Mobile Device as Second Camera Angle (Multicam Mode)

Include an extra camera angle when you record by joining in Multicam mode from your iOS device. The additional angle provides more flexibility: for example, you can use it to capture a close-up or switch between two views of yourself when you edit the final video. Follow the steps below to join a Studio as a Host while using your iOS device in Multicam mode.

NOTE: Device Requirements
This is a beta feature that is available starting with version 2.1.2 of the Riverside iOS app and runs on iOS 15 or above. Stay tuned for further enhancements!

Step by step:

  1. Download the Riverside iOS app.
  2. Log in to your account on a computer.
  3. Join a Riverside Studio as a Host from the computer.
  4. Log in to your account on a mobile device.
  5. On the mobile device, navigate to the Studios list.
  6. Next to the same Studio joined in step 3, tap the three dots menu […].
  7. Select Join with second camera.
  8. After the device connects to the Studio, tap Join with second camera again.
    On the computer, the device is added to the Studio sidebar as Multicam.
    NOTE:
    The Studio does not display an additional video frame of the second camera angle. Download the video as a separate track on the recording's page afterward.
