Find the right setup

To get the best possible avatar, start with a calm and well-lit environment. Ensure that the camera angle is right, and that your face is not hidden behind hair or accessories.

Submit and get it.

The footage will be processed by our advanced algorithms for 5-10 business days. It will then be delivered directly to your Synthesia account.
