dslrBooth for Windows v6.42 – Live Template Preview
Live Template Preview
A highly sought after feature, Live Template Preview allows guests to see a video preview of themselves directly in the template. Guests can position themselves within the frame and opens the door to designing more creative templates and a more interactive experience.
Improved GoPro Performance and Reliability
We’ve made some improvements for better connection of GoPro cameras and better messaging with instructions when there are issues.
Support for 50hz
dslrBooth now supports recording and processing in 50Hz frame rate for GoPro, mirrorless and DSLR cameras. This is for use in countries that do not use 60hz to avoid flickering. To use this feature, disconnect your camera from dslrBooth, go in your camera settings and set it to 50Hz (GoPro) or PAL mode (Canon/Nikon). Connect the camera back to the computer and dslrBooth will use your setting for recording and processing.
Realtime Export Folder
- Each event’s videos and images are exported to a separate folder with the event name.
- Only one copy is now exported.
- Fix for cancelled sessions appearing in real-time export folder.
LumaShare was also updated to support iPhones and vertical slideshows. This version will only work with LumaShare v3.5 and later.
Bug Fixes & Tweaks
