The buttons in the bottom right let you choose to Save your video to a folder on your computer or Share it online.

Share

If you choose to share your video on YouTube, you’ll need to enter your login credentials and video settings on the screen which pops up. It may take a few minutes for the video to finish uploading.

YT Upload

Note: Your saved videos will play back in standard video applications such as Windows Media Player and QuickTime. You don’t have to open HUE Intuition again to watch them. As of HUE Intuition 1.7.2.0, the Windows version of HUE Intuition exports in WMV format while the Mac version can save in MP4/MOV/AVI formats.

The Scan function allows you to save still images in different formats. It’s suitable for scanning a large number of documents quickly using your HUE camera.

Scan

You can rotate your images vertically or horizontally.

Scan preview

Tip: If you want to review each scanned image before saving it, uncheck the Auto Save Capture box in the bottom right.

The Document Camera feature lets you add annotations to the live video stream, turning your HUE into a document camera or visualiser. The edited images can then be saved to your computer for future use.

To choose a tool, click the icon and move your cursor. The tool will turn orange, indicating that it has been selected.

Delete:
Use the eraser to delete anything you have added to the image. If you want to clear all of your annotations at once, use the button in the bottom right of the toolbox.

Snapshot: Use the camera button to take a picture at any time.

Rotate: Flip or mirror the live video vertically or horizontally, without having to move the camera.

Colour swatches: Use the colour picker to choose your colour for annotations and filling/outlining shapes.

Document Camera 1

You can add Text using the T button. Change the font or size by using the slider and list adjacent to the button. The pointer tool (arrow) can be used to select an existing text box if you want to make changes.

Document Camera 2

Add shapes and change the fill and border colours using the colour swatches. If you want to create a shape which is already filled with a solid colour, check the Filled box.

Document Camera 3

Use Image Capture mode to save still images from your camera’s video stream. There are three different capture methods you can choose from:

On Keypress: Choose when you want to take each picture by pressing a designated key on your keyboard.

On Timer: Set a timer to take pictures automatically. The Interval is the gap between each picture, while the Duration is the period over which you want to take pictures. For example, if you wanted to show a flower opening up in the sunlight, you could set the timer to take a picture at an Interval of every minute for a Duration of 12 hours. Or if you want to record the activity in your classroom, you could set the camera to record an image every 30 seconds (Interval) for an hour (Duration).

On Movement: This mode captures an image each time the camera detects movement – a bit like a security camera.

Select your capture method and click the Capture button to start. You can stop recording at any time by pressing the same button again (its icon will change to a square once capture has begun).

Image Capture mode

Note: Advanced users can configure the software to upload the captured images to an FTP server automatically if it’s necessary to monitor the camera online.

The Settings tab allows you to determine where your picture and videos will be saved and select the format you want for your pictures.

HUE Intuition Settings

The default settings should be suitable for most users.

Clicking the Skype™ button in HUE Intuition will automatically disconnect your HUE’s video stream and launch Skype™. The camera’s stream will only work in one application at a time.

To make video calls on Skype™, open the Tools menu and pick Options, then go to the Video settings. The HUE camera should be selected and showing a preview of your video as below.

Skype

The Audio settings tab lets you check that HUE’s USB microphone is selected.

Skype Audio Settings

On a Mac, the settings are in Preferences then the Audio/Video tab.

Skype for Macs

Note: If Skype™ isn’t installed on your computer, you’ll be taken to the Skype™ website in order to download and install the software. Using Skype™ for computer-to-computer video calls requires setting up a free Skype™ account.

You will have received either an activation code or a license key with your purchase of the HUE Intuition software.

Activation codes

An activation code is used only once, to register your software on our website and to generate your license key used for all future activations. Activation codes are printed on the back of the HUE HD Pro user guide as shown here.

HUE Intuition activation codes always start with ‘INT’, like this: INT1234567890

Activation codes do not use the letter ‘o’, so any ‘o’s in your code should be entered as zeroes (‘0’).

License keys

Customers who placed software-only or bulk license orders might receive a license key instead of going through the extra registration stage above. If so, your software will have been registered automatically on our website and your license keys will be displayed here.

HUE Intuition license keys are longer, and look like this: 123456-123456-1234-1234567890

You will have been sent a confirmation email with your activation details and account password during the original registration. This can sometimes be found in a Spam or Junk Mail folder.


Registering your software through the HUE website

Note: For schools, we recommend using a central email address rather than a specific teacher’s account to make sure that the license details remain easily accessible in future.

For a step-by-step walkthrough, please also see our Activation Tutorial.

1. Download

It is best to always download the latest version from the website rather than installing the version that you may have on a CD, as Windows/Mac system updates are released on a regular basis.

2. Install

Double click on the downloaded file to launch the software installer and install HUE Intuition on your computer.

3. Activate

…with an Activation Code.

Choose the Activate with an activation code option for first time activations. An account will be automatically created on our website, registering your activation code to the email address that you choose during activation. You will receive a confirmation email with your license key, which you will need to use for any further activations.

…with a License Key.

Choose the Activate with a license key option if you have already registered your activation code, or if you have purchased a software-only license online.

…with an Offline Key.

If the computer you’re using has no Internet access, you may need to register your activation code through our website to obtain your license key. A full step-by-step tutorial can be found here.


If you have registered your activation code before but you don’t know your license key or how to download the latest version of the software, please note that all of your software updates and license details are always stored on your online HUE account. If you have forgotten your login details, you can request a password reset or lost license reminder.

If you’re having any other trouble accessing your software, please contact us with all of the relevant details (order number, activation details, error message etc.) and we’ll be able to help.

Note: Your saved videos will play back in standard video applications such as Windows Media Player and QuickTime. You don’t have to open HUE Intuition again to watch them. As of HUE Intuition 1.7.2.0, the Windows version of HUE Intuition exports in WMV format while the Mac version can save in MP4/MOV/AVI formats.

The Scan function allows you to save still images in different formats. It’s suitable for scanning a large number of documents quickly using your HUE camera.

Scan

You can rotate your images vertically or horizontally.

Scan preview

Tip: If you want to review each scanned image before saving it, uncheck the Auto Save Capture box in the bottom right.

The Document Camera feature lets you add annotations to the live video stream, turning your HUE into a document camera or visualiser. The edited images can then be saved to your computer for future use.

To choose a tool, click the icon and move your cursor. The tool will turn orange, indicating that it has been selected.

Delete:
Use the eraser to delete anything you have added to the image. If you want to clear all of your annotations at once, use the button in the bottom right of the toolbox.

Snapshot: Use the camera button to take a picture at any time.

Rotate: Flip or mirror the live video vertically or horizontally, without having to move the camera.

Colour swatches: Use the colour picker to choose your colour for annotations and filling/outlining shapes.

Document Camera 1

You can add Text using the T button. Change the font or size by using the slider and list adjacent to the button. The pointer tool (arrow) can be used to select an existing text box if you want to make changes.

Document Camera 2

Add shapes and change the fill and border colours using the colour swatches. If you want to create a shape which is already filled with a solid colour, check the Filled box.

Document Camera 3

Use Image Capture mode to save still images from your camera’s video stream. There are three different capture methods you can choose from:

On Keypress: Choose when you want to take each picture by pressing a designated key on your keyboard.

On Timer: Set a timer to take pictures automatically. The Interval is the gap between each picture, while the Duration is the period over which you want to take pictures. For example, if you wanted to show a flower opening up in the sunlight, you could set the timer to take a picture at an Interval of every minute for a Duration of 12 hours. Or if you want to record the activity in your classroom, you could set the camera to record an image every 30 seconds (Interval) for an hour (Duration).

On Movement: This mode captures an image each time the camera detects movement – a bit like a security camera.

Select your capture method and click the Capture button to start. You can stop recording at any time by pressing the same button again (its icon will change to a square once capture has begun).

Image Capture mode

Note: Advanced users can configure the software to upload the captured images to an FTP server automatically if it’s necessary to monitor the camera online.

The Settings tab allows you to determine where your picture and videos will be saved and select the format you want for your pictures.

HUE Intuition Settings

The default settings should be suitable for most users.

Clicking the Skype™ button in HUE Intuition will automatically disconnect your HUE’s video stream and launch Skype™. The camera’s stream will only work in one application at a time.

To make video calls on Skype™, open the Tools menu and pick Options, then go to the Video settings. The HUE camera should be selected and showing a preview of your video as below.

Skype

The Audio settings tab lets you check that HUE’s USB microphone is selected.

Skype Audio Settings

On a Mac, the settings are in Preferences then the Audio/Video tab.

Skype for Macs

Note: If Skype™ isn’t installed on your computer, you’ll be taken to the Skype™ website in order to download and install the software. Using Skype™ for computer-to-computer video calls requires setting up a free Skype™ account.

You will have received either an activation code or a license key with your purchase of the HUE Intuition software.

Activation codes

An activation code is used only once, to register your software on our website and to generate your license key used for all future activations. Activation codes are printed on the back of the HUE HD Pro user guide as shown here.

HUE Intuition activation codes always start with ‘INT’, like this: INT1234567890

Activation codes do not use the letter ‘o’, so any ‘o’s in your code should be entered as zeroes (‘0’).

License keys

Customers who placed software-only or bulk license orders might receive a license key instead of going through the extra registration stage above. If so, your software will have been registered automatically on our website and your license keys will be displayed here.

HUE Intuition license keys are longer, and look like this: 123456-123456-1234-1234567890

You will have been sent a confirmation email with your activation details and account password during the original registration. This can sometimes be found in a Spam or Junk Mail folder.


Registering your software through the HUE website

Note: For schools, we recommend using a central email address rather than a specific teacher’s account to make sure that the license details remain easily accessible in future.

For a step-by-step walkthrough, please also see our Activation Tutorial.

1. Download

It is best to always download the latest version from the website rather than installing the version that you may have on a CD, as Windows/Mac system updates are released on a regular basis.

2. Install

Double click on the downloaded file to launch the software installer and install HUE Intuition on your computer.

3. Activate

…with an Activation Code.

Choose the Activate with an activation code option for first time activations. An account will be automatically created on our website, registering your activation code to the email address that you choose during activation. You will receive a confirmation email with your license key, which you will need to use for any further activations.

…with a License Key.

Choose the Activate with a license key option if you have already registered your activation code, or if you have purchased a software-only license online.

…with an Offline Key.

If the computer you’re using has no Internet access, you may need to register your activation code through our website to obtain your license key. A full step-by-step tutorial can be found here.


If you have registered your activation code before but you don’t know your license key or how to download the latest version of the software, please note that all of your software updates and license details are always stored on your online HUE account. If you have forgotten your login details, you can request a password reset or lost license reminder.

If you’re having any other trouble accessing your software, please contact us with all of the relevant details (order number, activation details, error message etc.) and we’ll be able to help.
