Running Breeze Booth for iPad for the first time
Start the App
Tap the Breeze icon to start the App, then Events
Download the list of events from a server
The first time you run Breeze Booth for iPad the event list will be empty. You need to download events from a server to get started. We have set up a server with four demonstration events for you to download and try out.
Tap on “Update” in the top right corner to download a list of events from Breeze Systems server.
After downloading the event list tap on < Events to return to the events screen. You should see a list of events:
Download all the settings for a single event
Swipe right to left on an event and select Sync to download the files from the server to your iPad. (Sync is also used to ensure that you have the latest version of files for an event.)
Be patient, and wait until you see Sync. completed successfully.
Tap < Events to return to the events screen after syncing the files.
Run the event
Now swipe right to left on the event and tap “Run” to run the event.
In this example you will see the ready screen for an event called Simple ‘photos only’ photo booth
Take your first photos and explore the other events we have set up for you to try. (You will need to Exit the event, return to the Events screen, choose a new event and Sync to download the settings fron the server before you can run it.)
You can shoot and share photos and boomerang GIFs by email, play with virtual props and see semi-transparent overlays.
You will be able to install Breeze Booth for iPad when you receive an email invitation to the email address for your Apple ID.
Breeze Booth for iPad events are defined in a powerful Windows based program called Breeze Booth Event Editorv. This post uses a set of predefined ‘events’ that we have set up for you.
We have seen how to sync your iPad with a server containing sample events. First you download a list of events from the server, then all the detailed information you need to run an event.
View and share the folders stored on the iPad
The iOS 11 Files app can be used to view the files used by Breeze Booth for iPad. You can share events and their associated photos by copying them to an iCloud or DropBox folder.
Tap Browse in the Files app, then On my iPad . You should see a folder named Breeze Booth.
Tap on the folder to open it and there will be two folders: assets which is where the event configuration is stored and photos where photos, animated GIFs and MP4 movies captured by Breeze Booth are stored.
