Manycam is a virtual webcam, you can provide it with videos, images, audio and has many other features like flipping or mirroring footage, adding effects and so on.

open to using multiple pieces of software to accomplish this task. I'm glad you allow this. For me, this combination of software does the job really well: Open Broadcaster Software plus OBS Virtual Cam plus VB Cable.

I'd strongly recommend Open Camera – which is available at F-Droid and meets all your must-have requirements. Your nice-to-haves are covered partly: there is a video mode, and you can adjust a lot of parameters. It has image stabilzation, face detection, timer, and more – but AFAIK no QR integration (at least I didn't see that). The app is easy to use and ...

Whenever it comes to automation, the first thing I consider is checking Tasker – which is the automation app for Android. And allright, it supports this.

Before there even was Office Lens, the de-facto app for this sort of thing on Android and iOS systems has been CamScanner for some time. It does exactly the sorts of things you're talking about here.

If you're looking for something completely free, try FastStone Image ...

Although I haven't tried any of the software myself, I have found a couple that might be of interest (none of them is open source, however).

Also, their non-commercial AnimatorHD Home edition is definitely under your $100 budget (it's ...
