You can add contactless entry to an existing Breeze Booth event, or start from scratch. You will need to
Your ready screen(s) must have touchscreen actions defined for switchToStillsAndStart and switchToGifAndStart
Tell Breeze Booth to read QR codes, and check the touch screen settings for each Ready screen you are using
(1) Go to the General Photo booth Settings tab
(2) Check the boxes QR code string scanning and Scan QR code command scanning*.
(3) Go to the touch screen settings to check you have the correct actions on your screens
* Advanced users: Do this for each profile where you want to use QR codes.
If your ready screen does not already have the correct action, you need to add it.
Right click on the screen and select Add action..
Either add the new action to an unused part of the screen or delete the old stillsStart action and replace it with switchToStillsAndStart
If you prefer you can delete the Photo Start action and drag the new switchToStillsAndStart action to replace it.
When you are done right click and remember to save your changes as you leave.
Setting up the actions for burst GIFs is very similar to handling still photos. For contactless capture of a burst GIF the screen needs the action switchToGifAndStart
Where possible keep it simple:
The following screens are suggestions to improve the flow for a touchfree experience.
Many of you will want to personalize the forms guests use to generate their QR code. Go ahead, add your own branding and title to the Breeze QR page and make it your own.
The online form designer also generates a QR code guests can scan to access your online form. If you prefer, send them a link with the url of the page.
When the photos,GIFs/MP4 has been taken they are automatically texted or emailed to the guest who started the session.
Often several guests want to share the same images. There’s no need for each guest to type their details into the sharing screen. Instead, guests show the camera/webcam their own QR code. (Guests who don’t want to use QR codes can use the touchscreen keyboard as usual.)
You can add an overlay to your ready screens to prompt guests to show their QR code to the booth. Call this ready_overlay.png
