Recording a Multi-Camera Video

Recording a Multi-Camera* video requires an iOS device with the Swivl app and up to four additional devices (iOS, Android, or Chromebook) with the Swivl+ app. 

 This feature is available for Pro Plus subscribers only. Activate your Pro Plus trial today or learn more about upgrading here. If you're a Standard or Pro user, you can set up a dual-camera session following the same instructions below (for dual-camera, you will be limited to only one additional device).

Preparing the Multi-Camera session on the Swivl app:

  • Open the Swivl app on the teacher’s device, which must be an iOS device (iPad, iPhone, or iPod)
  • Sign in to the app using your Swivl account credentials.
  • Tap Capture in the Swivl app interface.
  • Tap the camera icon on the capture screen
  • The app will display the code that you will input on the other recording devices using the Swivl+ app, to join the session.

The additional devices will appear as "C1, C2..." up to a maximum number of four additional cameras.

    • Tap the circular record button on the right side of the screen to initiate recording. If you are using a Swivl robot, you can also tap on the red button on the side of the Primary Marker.
    • A countdown will begin on all recording devices. Once recording begins, all devices will capture both audio and video.
    • When you are finished, tap the record button again and a timer will count down to the end of the recording.
    • In order to access your Multi-Camera project, you will need to upload all videos and log into your Swivl account in a browser. Watch a Multi-Camera video example here.
