Frequently asked questions

What is a custom avatar?
Synthesia custom avatar is a digital, but photo-realistic representation of a human. These custom avatars can be used to create business videos with Synthesia. You can create a custom avatar of yourself or a team member for example (with explicit consent of the person).

Once your custom avatar is created, it will appear among our built-in avatars in Synthesia STUDIO. Then you can use it in your videos. You simply define the video script you want the person to speak, set the rest of the video, and generate the video.

You can see an example case study here.
How long does it take to make a custom avatar?
It currently takes about 10-15 minutes of video recording in front of a green screen. After you’ve submitted the footage to our team and paid for the custom avatar, you’ll receive your custom avatar on your Synthesia account within 10 days.
Can we use existing videos or images to create a custom avatar?
No. To create a custom avatar, you need to make a special video recording and use the Synthesia custom avatar script. The process takes about 10-15 minutes.
Isn’t this technology dangerous? Can I make an avatar of everyone?
No, you can't create a custom avatar of someone. Creating a new custom avatar requires explicit consent from the person to be made the avatar and our team manually checks and processes all custom avatar video footage. Moreover, existing images or video footage can't be used for creating custom avatars - our custom avatar creation requires about 10-15 minutes of dedicated video recording (as described above).

This means that it is impossible to impersonate a celebrity or a politician. You can read more about our ethics policy here.

Even more curious about the implications of this technology? Watch a webinar discussion with Nina Schick, international speaker and deepfake expert, and our CEO Victor Riparbelli here.
Do you have some examples of custom avatars?
Most custom avatars are used for internal purposes by our business customers, but you can see a case study with a company that uses their custom avatar for training videos here.
Will the custom avatar have my voice?
No, our custom avatars are purely visual and can be used with our broad selection of synthetic voices.

That said, we have an integration with Descript Overdub which enables you to produce your own voice as well and connect it with Synthesia STUDIO (available on our corporate plans only). Read how to set up the integration here.
