What is a Webcam Avatar?
In simple terms, a WebCam Avatar is an avatar that resembles you, and you can create videos using it. The difference between Custom Avatars and Webcam Avatars is that you can create a Webcam Avatar through your own Webcam or laptop camera, eliminating the need to film in Synthesia.
Currently, your Webcam avatar will not have your voice, but you can choose from our broad selection of synthetic voices.
Please note that in order to create a Webcam avatar, you must be at least 18 years of age.
Here is an example of what a WebCam Avatar looks like.

We recommend ensuring that the camera is stable, and that you remain relaxed while recording. Additionally, make sure you have a strong internet connection and are using the best computer and WebCam available to you, as this will impact the quality of your avatar.
It's a good idea to loosely memorise the script before recording. This allows you to focus on speaking clearly and looking into the camera, rather than reading from the script. Doing so will make your performance and avatar appear more natural.
