Breeze profiles – Building Multi-Choice Menus and Unexpected Twists

Breeze profiles are unique and powerful building blocks you can use to  create simple multi choice menus through to complex choice based scenarios.

Use profiles to create multi-language booths, choose between different print layouts or add an element of surprise.

Profiles add random animations and effects to mirrors and conventional booths.

The Breeze website has three new tutorials explaining how to use profiles. They are written for Booth (DSLR +Windows) aka DSLR Remote Pro, and can be adapted for use with Booth (Webcam+Windows) aka Webcam Photobooth.

  • Part 1 introduces profiles and shows how to use them to build a simple menu. The worked example creates a menu offering a choice of two print layouts.
  • Part 2 shows how to spice up a booth by randomly mixing different designs.
  • Part 3 covers both troubleshooting and combining a menu with a random ‘surprise me’ option.

Get started – offering a choice of print layouts

Guests can choose between print layouts

Getting started takes you step by step through using profiles to build a menu from which guests choose a print layout.

Use the same approach to offer a choice of green screen experience or background removal.

Random profiles can be used to add excitment and interest to a booth or mirror. Vary the animations and audible comments in magic mirrors, surprise guests by placing them in different environments (AI background removal or green screen), and build wheel of fortune booths.

Note: You need to use random profiles to randomly change your screens and create menus. There is a simpler way to offer random print and GIF designs, which you can find here
