Apple has introduced new video reactions as a feature in MacOS Sonoma, which can be activated with specific hand gestures. These reactions can be used across any program on your Mac with a video component, including FastCapture.
This feature is on by default but is easily turned off. To disable reactions, follow these steps:
- When using FastCapture, click the Video icon: This icon appears in the menu bar when a program is using video.
- If you’re using multiple programs simultaneously that use video, you can adjust this setting for each program that you’re using by selecting them at the top of the dropdown window. (Note: This choice will not appear if only one program is using video)
- If the icon next to Reactions is blue, it is active. A gray icon means it is disabled. You can click the icon to toggle the Reactions feature on or off. You can also activate or deactivate the “Portrait” and “Studio Light” camera filters from this menu as well.
