DSLR Remote Pro 3.9 – can you resist?

I’ve fallen in love with Breeze again

  • Animated GIFs with soundtrack
  • Extra branding/ logo overlay for animated GIFs

Easier setup – improvements to Photobooth Setup Wizard for everyone

We recommend everyone from Breeze Newbies to Ninjas uses the Photobooth Setup Wizard as a start point for setting up a booth. This is a simple, speedy and safe way to generate a working system which you can customize to your heart’s content (or spend the time you saved doing something even nicer).

Photobooth Setup Wizard – a piece of cake with Breeze DSLR Remote Pro 3.9

Chris has improved the flow of the Wizard, making it a piece of cake to build a system offering guests choices (such as Photos or GIF), and run the booth with square or full screen live view as an alternative to normal landscape images.

New dropdown list to give guests choices (Photos/Boomerang GIF, Photos only, Boomerang GIFs only, Photo or video, Video only)

Use the setup wizard to customize the live view. Changing the live view in the Wizard will automatically adjust the animated GIFs and prints created by DSLR Remote Pro 3.9.

New improved ready screen to choose from Photos or Animated GIFs

Choose Photos or Boomerang GIFs and check Single ready screen so that guests start the booth and choose between still photos and boomerang GIFs from a single screen as here:

Shoot and share without printing

Running a ‘shoot and share’ booth with animated GIFs and no printing is increasingly popular. The DSLR Remote Pro 3.9 Wizard no longer asks you to select a printer when you  offer only Boomerang GIFs or Video.

New animated GIFs with audio

You can now add an optional soundtrack to the MP4 copy of your animated GIFs. Learn more

Enhanced animated GIF branding with additional overlay

New: add a second overlay to animated GIFs with branding & logo. The additional overlay is an easy way to brand animated GIFs you have created yourself or sourced from third parties. Learn more

Greenscreen processing – higher quality and faster

Print higher quality green screened images more quickly.  DSLR Remote Pro 3.9 green screen algorithms have been rewritten to be both faster and produce higher quality results. Greenscreen photobooth

  3. Shoot in portrait orientation. The auto alignment tool now supports cameras in portrait or landscape orientation.
  4. Raw+JPEG support for the Multi-Camera Animator. JPEG images are used to create animated GIFs/MP4s. The raw files can be used for high quality post-processing after an event.
