Countdown Timer & Event Capture Settings
When you open an event on the iOS app (on your iPad or iPhone), capture settings is the middle tab.
Capture Types (not shown in photo - above what is shown)
- Photos. Turn this on to allow guests to take photos. The number of photos taken and the way they appear is determined by the template of the event.
- Slow-mo. Turn this on to allow guests to make slow-motion videos of themselves. These are MP4 videos encoded with H.264, without audio.
- Boomerang. Turn this on to allow guests to make a short boomerang MP4 video of themselves.
- GIF. Turn this on to allow guests to take a rapid series of photos that is created as an MP4 video.
- Video + sound. Turn this on to allow guests to record videos with sound.
- Countdown Timer. This timer determines how long guests have before the video, slow-mo, boomerang, or the first photo is taken.
- App Sounds. If you don't want the app to play sound, turn this off
- Portrait Mode. Adds a portrait-like effect to video & photos. While portrait mode is on you cannot make slow-mos. Requires iOS 15 or newer and an iPad/iPhone with Face ID. Warning: this can make your device very hot, so make sure your device is well ventilated. If your phone/iPad overheats, turn this feature off.
- Convert photos to Black & White. Choose from three black and white presets.
- Make a MP4/GIF from photos. When taking more than 2 photos, the app will also create an MP4 of the photos put together like a GIF.
- GIF - Number of photos. When making a GIF, controls how many photos are taken.
- GIF - playback speed. Changes how fast the GIF playback speed is.
- GIF - apply boomerang effect. Adds a boomerang effect during GIF creation.
- Slow-mo: Record time. Controls how long the slow-mo is recorded for. The duration of the actual MP4 will be much longer.
- Slow-mo: apply boomerang effect. When turned on the slow-mo video will have a boomerang effect applied to it
- Video: Max recording time. This controls how long guests are allowed to record videos with sound. If your guests take too long, make it shorter.
- Attract screen delay. How long until the app shows the attract screen when no touches on the screen are detected and no faces are seen by the device camera.
- Idle timeout (no touch & no face). If a guest starts taking photos and then leaves meaning that the app is left halfway through a session, how long until the app aborts this session and goes back to the home screen. Note that a touch on the screen or a face seen by the device camera resets this timer.
