1. Enable Green Screen
Social Booth has built in green screen removal. If you shoot your photos on a green background, you will be able to let users select their own backgrounds that replace the green.
2. Enable GS Overlays
Green Screen Overlays are transparent png files that are placed on top of the photo after the green screen effect has been applied, creating a bit of depth in the shot. The included examples are just a brick wall that gets placed on top of the final photo. But you can use different overlays for each background. The overlays are defined by having "-overlay" at the end of the file name. For example, the overlay for background_01.jpg is background_01-overlay.png. Be sure to follow this naming convention if using green screen overlays.
3. Use Custom Color
If you are shooting on a different color besides green, you can define the RGB values here.
4. GS Background Folder
The default green screen folder is C:\Program Files (x86)\Photo Booth Solutions\Social Booth\Assets\GreenScreen but you can define your own folder with your own backgrounds. If you only have 1, the user won't choose the background, and every photo will automatically use the same background
5. Choose BG/Each Shot
Enabling this will allow the user to select a different background for each shot in the session. Otherwise, the same background will be used for each shot.
6. Auto Cycle BGs
Enabling this will have the software go through each background in the folder. The first background in the folder will be used for picture one, the next background for the next photo and so on.
7. Minimum/Maximum Tolerance
These are a few parameters to tweak if you are having problems getting a good green screen image. With proper lighting, the default settings should be fine in most cases. Min. tolerance = .1 and Max tolerance = .3
8. Blur Edges
This option will give you a little blur around the edge of the green screen removal.
9. Disable Live View GS Removal in DSLR Mode
This will remove the live green screen removal when using a DSLR camera. This is a good option if your computer is lagging.
10. Use webcam for live view
In DSLR mode, use the webcam for a live background of the green screen. This will help guests with placement.
11. Scale and Place Green Screen
This will take the photo and scale it down and put in a specific area. See the example video below. As of 4/1/19, scale and place only works in landscape orientation, not portrait.
12. GS Interactive Shot
This option uses the first shot as the background for the second shot.
