Allow Live Events Producers to change their background
Buenas tardes, tengo problemas con el fondo de teams, se me activa cuando estoy ya en una reunión pero de repente se desactiva y lo logro tenerlo activarlo. Para mí es indispensable pues soy docente y requiero de fondos que ustedes ofrecen. Igualmente la galería grande se activa durante una actividad cuando quiere. Por favor solicito ayuda ante esto. Muchas gracias.
producer should be like presenter to be allowed to set virtual background
Workaround for those that want a background:
Join a meeting as a Presenter and select the desired background. Exit that meeting.
Now join your live event as a producer: E`voila, the background from the previous meeting is still applied!
(But you cannot switch it off when in "presenter mode"... be warned)
A presenter can change a background, but a producer cannot?
THIS IS CLEARLY A BUG! PLEASE FIX IT!

It gets very awkward at times in producer role when suddenly you need to switch the video on and u can't change the background during the event as producer i hope Microsoft role the feature for changing the background during the live event for producers
This is now possible since Teams persists your background effect settings between meetings...
If you set a background image in another meeting it will then appear when you join as a Presenter in a Live Event :)
I'm surprised that this doesn't have more votes than the 50. I think it's because not a lot of people know about Teams Live (as they schedule in Outllook)
Our organization produces events internally (company wide) every single month and uses Teams Live so you don't see a gallery view of people who aren't speaking and we can put the focus on the speaker.
We also have a bunch of people to produce our live event (because if you want to do this and make it look professional, you need more than one person). It's a pain today without background images as a producer because I produce and present a little each time.
Because of this, production of Teams Live events requires more people because all video presenters need to be in as a presenter in which now you have to solicit more people to be a producer of content.
Why do we do this? Because we don't want people presenting with their bedroom in the background

Yes, I agree producer should be able to change background....much needed feature
As a Presenter you can change the background but as a Producer you can't. Please Microsoft can you update and fix this. Thank you
I would like to be able to change the background as a producer.
This is something Microsoft Should enable.
How can I change the Live Event Background ?

Ive noticed as an attendee to other live calls that this in fact possible. However, when I'm hosting my own event I cannot find the option.
