Here are steps to enable the AI Background Removal feature and use it at your next event!
Please note: this is only available from app version 1.18, so make sure you update your app. Also, ensure that you have BG removal credits and a strong/reliable internet connection.
Enable Green Screen
First, enable "Green screen" under your event's "Features" tab.
Adjust your Green Screen Settings
Under the "Green screen" section, you will now be able to choose between "Chromakey" or "AI (Requires an active internet connection)"
Chromakey: You will need a physical green screen backdrop.
AI (Requires an active internet connection.): This will allow you to use the AI BG removal, which does not require a physical backdrop.
For purposes of this article, you can now select "AI (Requires an active internet connection) from the dropdown next to "BG Removal Type"
Once you select AI, then you will see another three settings pop-up.
Allow Retry on Failure: Enabling this setting will allow your guests to have the option to retry their BG removal if it does fail (BG removal could fail if there are connection issues).
Allow Skipping Process on Failure: Enabling this setting will allow your guests to have the option to skip the BG removal process if it fails.
AI Upload Requires Approval: Enabling this setting will allow the guest the option to approve their image before proceeding.
Once you are happy with your settings, you can upload your green screen background images/animations and click "Save changes"
Limiting which templates use AI
If you do not want to use BG removal credits on some templates, you can do this by going to the specific template and clicking on the "GS" button, and then ticking "Disable AI Removal" (Burst Templates are disabled by default)
Top Up BG Removal Credits
Now that you have set up the green screen section, you can proceed to the "Accounts" tab and purchase "BG Removal Credits"
Now you are ready to start testing the background removal on your virtual booth event!
Please note that each background removal costs 1 credit, so if you have a 1 photo template, it will cost 1 BG removal credit, and if you have a 3 photo GIF, it will cost 3 BG removal credits.
