ChatFX was the first program to add realtime special effects to iChat before Apple added it to Leopard.
IMPORTANT: NO LONGER SUPPORTED AS OF 2007 - ChatFX was broken by Mac OS 10.4.10 and Leopard.
Please try our other productivity apps instead:
yType, CopyPaste, iClock, iWatermark, iKey, TinyAlarm, TinyCal, or PixelStick a try. Essential utilities for every Mac user.
ChatFX was great fun for us. Apple built this feature into Leopard (and did a better job because of their access to the OS) one year after we introduced it including many of the exact same effects. Our role was never acknowledged but we are proud to have been there first. Thanks to all the creators of the included Quartz compositions! And many thanks to the great users!
ChatFX brought a great idea and outstanding visual effects to iChat for the first time. Practical but also incredibly fun. Kids love seeing the bluescreen and other fun effects. Adults find it makes video-conferencing more entertaining and a lot less intimidating.

Spice up your chats with special effects like those seen only seen in movies and PhotoShop.
Effects like bluescreen (which is capable of showing any movie, tv, video, or animation in the background of a video chat), twirl, comic book, alien, interrogation, pencil, vortex, dent, bump, bodyart, facepaint, fisheye, waking life, bubbles, mercury, on fire, ogre, sepia, sobel, xray, and many more, are included and any kind of special video effect can be created. Anything is now possible in iChat.
