Do Not Process: Checking this stops Photo Booth Upload from processing your video at all. This means you can't use is in conjunction with Green Screen, or with Titles, Music, aspect ratio etc. It will simply copy your video straight to your output folder as is. This is useful for speeding up the process for yourself or your guests to be able to see their video within the kiosk and share it without any processing time.
Audio Track: Upload a music file / audio track to use during the video. Select Open File to find the file from your PC. Select Reset to remove any loaded music. Use a third party application if you need to cut/edit the audio file to your specific needs. A site such as mp3cut.net will work.
Audio Offset (ms): This will allow you to delay or advance your music track in milliseconds (ms). This is useful to better align your guests to the music after processing, particularly when lip syncing.
Audio Track Volume: Adjust the volume of the audio track that is loaded

Video Loops: Allows you to create multiple loops of your recording in the finished video.
Reverse Video: Select if you would like your video to play forward then reverse with a "boomerang" effect.
Add Video Overlay: Add an overlay image (must be .png), or overlay image sequence to your video. When selected, a new window will appear. Options in this window will change slightly based on the type of overlay you would like to add. Check out the options below:
Video overlays will allow you to choose from these options:
Stretch Mode: Choose between Stretch, Crop, or Center for the image file.
Overlay Image: Select Open File to add an overlay Image.
Image Sequence overlay will allow you to choose from these options:
Adjust to video duration: Will automatically adjust the overlay to play for the duration of the video.
Set Duration: Set the duration of how long the overlay will appear in seconds.
Set Framerate: Set a number of frames per second the images will play.
Note: We recommend you do not use a Video file as your video overlay. An image sequence is much easier to make and will process much faster.
