PBPI delegates last month enthused about a pre-release version of the program. One even exclaimed “I’ve fallen in love with Breeze again”. I am delighted to announce the release of DSLR Remote Pro 3.9 on Valentine’s Day.
Improvements to the Photobooth Setup Wizard
Animated GIFs with soundtrack
Extra branding/ logo overlay for animated GIFs
Faster, higher quality green screen processing
Fix for issue with complex HTML emails
DSLR Remote Pro 3.9 supports most Canon DSLR cameras and runs on Windows 10, 8 and 7. This release is a free upgrade for all registered users who purchased a license on or after 15th February 2017. Customers with an older DSLR Remote Pro license (and any NKRemote license holder) can buy an upgrade license to use this release.
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)
New dropdown list to adjust live view
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 bothfaster and produce higher quality results. Greenscreen photobooth

PBPI starts one month today in Dallas. Have you booked your place yet?
The Academy focuses on business and technical education for Photo Booth Industry professionals. It is also a lot of fun!
Chris will give presentations on both photo booth shooting and multi-camera rigs; there will be plenty of opportunities to learn more about Breeze software and to talk in more detail than is practical at a trade show.
This release adds support for the Canon EOS 6D Mark II and includes a number of enhancements to the Multi-Camera Animator:
Save the current calibration settings with each set of downloaded photos. This makes it much easier to regenerate GIF or MP4 files after an event using the calibration settings that were used when the photos were taken.
Integrate multi-camera array shooting into a workflow e.g. post processing photos using Adobe After Effects or copying files to a viewing or sharing station. An optional command can be run on the calibration settings file that is saved after each set of photos has been processed.
Shoot in portrait orientation. The auto alignment tool now supports cameras in portrait or landscape orientation.
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.
This release is a free upgrade for all registered users who purchased DSLR Remote Pro Multi-Camera after 11th December 2016. Customers with older licenses need to buy an upgrade license to use this release.
This maintenance release fixes a problem with using droplets in photo booth mode that affected v3.8. The HideWindowsTaskbar utility, which helps to hide Photoshop windows when running droplets, has been updated to work with the latest version of Photoshop.
This release is a free upgrade for all registered users who purchased DSLR Remote Pro after 11th December 2016. Customers with older licenses need to buy an upgrade license to use this release.
Choose whether to run buttons across the screen or to the side using the Photobooth Setup Wizard.
