1. What is a custom avatar?

Simply put, a custom avatar is your avatar. It will look the same as our stock avatars, but with your likeness, and you will be able to create videos using it.


Your custom avatar will not have your voice, but you can choose from our broad selection of synthetic voices.


2. How to create a custom avatar?

A custom avatar is created based on 15 minutes of footage of you speaking on camera, preferably in a professional studio. The requirements for the footage can be found below.

Please read the instructions carefully and remember that the quality of your footage will determine the quality of your custom avatar.

4. What framings are available for my custom avatar?

We currently offer the choice of a close-up framing or a wider framing for custom avatars. When you upload your footage into Synthesia Studio, you will be able to pick either framing. Please note that in cases where the technical requirements are not met, we will only be able to provide the close-up framing


5. How long does it take to produce the avatar?

From the day you provide the footage, it will take approximately 10 business days to create your custom avatar, providing a successful payment has been made. It will be delivered directly to your Synthesia STUDIO account.

Your custom avatar will only be available to you and will not form part of our stock avatars which available to all customers.


6. Security

Your custom avatar is only available in your account, unless you specify otherwise.

We require the explicit consent of the person creating the avatar, which means that it is impossible to impersonate a celebrity or politician.


7. Cartoon characters

It is not possible to take footage of cartoon characters and turn them into custom avatars.


8. How to purchase a Custom Avatar
