dslrBooth for Windows v6.38

Synchronize Events Across Booths

Access your events from multiple devices with dslrBooth’s sync feature. When creating an event, the event along with settings and any assets such as templates, backgrounds, and overlays will upload to the cloud when connected to the internet. Events can be synched across multiple machines while using the same fotoShare account, including accounts with multiple serial numbers.

sync status 100

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Including event settings, the following will be synched:

  • Templates
  • Green screen backgrounds and overlays
  • GIF overlays
  • Virtual attendant mp3s/mp4s
  • Start screen images
  • Say cheese images
  • Effects
  • Video Overlays
  • Digital Props
  • Watermarks

When upgrading to version 38 of dslrBooth it can take a few minutes for the syncing to occur. This will only happen when first updating to version 38.

Note: It is very important that you do not change files in AppData\Roaming\dslrBooth folders. Doing so will have severe consequences to the way the application works.

Asset Manager

The asset manager will show you any assets that you have uploaded, allowing you to choose from previous uploaded assets or upload new assets. Assets are the different files you upload from your device, including:

  • JPG/PNG files for green screen backgrounds and overlays, GIF/Boomerang overlays, start screen and say cheese images, digital props and watermarks
  • MP3/MP4 files for virtual attendant animations and audio files, video pre and post roll and video soundtrack
  • LUTs/cube files for filters

Assets will stay in the asset manager unless deleted and are global across events across all devices, allowing the user to access assets from other devices that were previously uploaded.

When a guest arrives, dslrBooth displays a QR Code. The guest can scan the QR code using their camera’s phone app. The camera will read the QR Code and display the start screen on the phone. The guest can choose their session type such as photo, GIF, boomerang or video. They can also choose their green screen backgrounds, templates and effects from the phone. The guest will also be able to accept the disclaimer and fill out the survey on the phone. At the end of the session, the sharing options will appear on the phone. The guest can choose from email, sms, or print options. Once complete, dslrBooth will display a new QR code for the next guest to begin their session.
