Hosts and Producers can adjust a camera's color temperature and light exposure for participants who are recording with the Riverside iOS or Android app. These camera controls allow for better-looking video, regardless of a participant's location and light conditions.

Hosts and Producers can only make camera control adjustments before recording or while the recording is stopped.
