Social Booth 1.2 - Green Screen Removal, Triggers & Timeouts

Last Updated: July 24, 2013

One of the most requested features for Social Booth has been Green Screen removal, and it’s now here!  If you shoot on green screen, just drop a handful of backgrounds into a folder and the user will automatically have the option to choose which background they want to use for their photo.  You can even let them choose a different background for each shot.  These green scree shots are also filterable and usable with the Animated Gif Mode!

Two other popular requests have been filled: Triggers and Timeouts.  The addition of triggers opens the door for Social Booth to be used in a variety of commercial situations.  You can now disable the touch to start screen and have Social Booth wait for a key press.  This key can be sent from a physical button, coin acceptor, bill validator, or credit card swipe.  You can also have it wait for a credits.txt file if your hardware supports that.

The timeout feature can be used to limit the amount of time the user has to spend on the upload screen.  This way if they start to linger, or even walk away without hitting the done button, the software will reset.

Some professional audio prompts have also been added replacing my lovely voice overs.
