Personalize your teleprompter! Feel comfortable while reading from the teleprompter by adjusting the various settings. Adjust the text size, speed, and add an external microphone.

Basic Teleprompter Settings

You can find the basic teleprompter settings icons along the bottom of the screen.

  • Resize

    Resize lets you widen or narrow down the text window so that you can position the text under the camera according to the size of your screen. Position the text near the camera lens and resize the text window as narrow as possible.

    This allows you to look directly at the camera- so no one will know you are reading a script!

  • Font Size

    Increase and decrease the font size so you can read easily, without squinting or narrowing your eyes.

  • Speed

    Use the speed slider to adjust the scrolling speed and pace yourself as you read the text. You will be able to change the scrolling speed even while recording.

  • Start point

    Use the Start Point button to choose where the text will start scrolling. This is handy if you made a mistake on your previous take. You can start reading the script just before your mistake and record a new take; there is no need to start from the beginning.

    Edit the takes and merge the best cuts into a sequence for the final video.

  • Exposure

    Exposure controls how bright or dark the light in your recording will be If the light changes randomly in your video, or it becomes too dark, try locking exposure so the camera doesn’t change it automatically when starting a new recording. Make sure that there is enough light on your face—you are your video’s main focus!

  • [Camera Quality]

    Define the quality video resolution you want for your Front Facing Camera and Rear Camera Facing while recording. Depending on what your device supports, BIGVU provides 4K resolution for Pro💎 subscribers.

  • [Automatic Teleprompter Stop]

    This setting automatically stops the recording at the end of the script text. No need to press stop when your script finishes scrolling.

  • [Pause on Silence]

    Do you need to take a breather while reading your script? The pause on silence feature pauses the scrolling when no audio is detected by the microphone of your device. This allows you to keep the camera recording while you’re not reading, and restart as soon as you start speaking.

  • In this settings screen, you will also find 2 other parameters: [Teleprompter Speed] if you want to adjust the speed for each line according to the number of words, and also [Words Per Minute] which is the same as the Speed parameter in the Teleprompter screen.
