Adding sound to burst and slideshow GIFs (MP4 copies of GIFs only)

How to add sound tracks to burst and slideshow GIFs shared by Breeze Booth (iPad + iPhone)

30 September 2019

Introduction

Adding an soundtrack to MP4 copies of both slideshow and burst GIFs shared by the App is very simple. First add your chosen MP3 audio file to the event screens folder, then update the event manifest so that the audio is included when the design is transferred to your iPads/iPhone.

Start the Event Editor and choose which event to edit

Open the event you want to edit (Breeze Booth Event Editor 1.3.1)

 

For simple events you are taken to this screen. Click on the Edit event settings button

Events with more than one profile

If the event has several profiles, you need to choose which profile to edit.

For events with more than one profile you are first taken to this screen, where you choose the profile you want to edit

Open the screens folder for the event (or individual profile)

Opening the screens folder from within the Event Editor

 

Paste your MP3 soundtrack into the screen folder

The audio file must be named correctly to be included with your MP4 video:

  • for Burst GIFs use gif_soundtrack.mp3
  • for Slideshow GIFs use slideshow_gif_soundtrack.mp3

Close the screens window and save your changes before leaving the Event Editor

When is the soundtrack played?

Audio soundtracks are included in MP4 copies of GIFs when they are shared from the device. The soundtrack does not play in the preview shown within the App itself.

You can only add sound tracks to MP4 copies of your GIFs, because the .GIF format does not support audio.

Finally transfer the new or updated event to your devices
