TAKE PICTURE

The Take Picture element is a button-link element that captures a series of photos of the room when clicked.

It must be accompanied by a Picture Strip element, which will display these photos.

This element can be used to make "photo booth" rooms where users drag props around the room to compose photos. Search for photo booths in the Room Gallery (see: IMPORTING ROOMS) for examples of photo booths with the Take Picture and Picture Strip elements.


Properties

  • Cooldown Secs: The amount of time (in seconds) the button remains inactive after capturing a photo.

  • Countdown Secs: The amount of time (in seconds) that is displayed as a countdown before capturing the picture.

  • Hide Countdown: Hides the countdown timer before taking a photo

  • Image URL The image to use for the button. Accepts asset URLs.


Props

It can often be fun to have draggable props (eg masks, hats, glasses) that users can position in the photo:

To do this, find create some IMAGE elements using transparent PNGs of your props. Then find the INTERACTION category in the properties panel and mark them as Draggable, Rotatable, and/or Resizable as needed:

Actions

  • Take Picture starts the picture taking process. The same as clicking on the button.

Hiding Elements from the Picture

Select the element to pull up its settings in the right-hand panel. Check the box next to Hide in Recordings under the Advanced category to hide the element from your picture.
