Are Synthesia avatars based on real people?
Synthesia’s AI avatars are trained on real actors with their explicit consent, and actors are paid per video that’s generated with their image. The base video footage is then taken through the AI system which creates new videos from text.

Are these actors compensated in any way?
Yes. All the actors have given explicit consent and gone through our custom video shooting. Actors are compensated for AI videos produced based on their appearance.
Can I make these actors say anything?
Synthesia is used for business purposes with strict content moderation. That's why we ask all our users to keep scripts professional and business related.
Political, sexual, personal, criminal and discriminatory content is not tolerated or approved.
Can I make a custom avatar of myself or team member?
Yes, of course. You can learn more about custom avatars here.
How about voices?
We have a big selection of synthetic voices ready to be used with all the avatars. You can see some language demos here.
