After you have downloaded the Portrait Mode images onto your desktop, or whatever folder you choose, open HoloPlay Studio.
To bring in your new capture, select
Add Hologram >
iPhone Portrait Photo>
Import File and navigate to the downloaded iPhone Portrait Mode photos you just sent to yourself.
You can only import one file at a time (for now!)
The photo you've imported will add to your playlist (on the left) while live previewing the new hologram in your Looking Glass Portrait display. Wasn't that ridiculously easy?
Your playlist is your collection of holograms you've brought into HoloPlay Studio. Let's briefly go over the options in the Playlist panel.
Right click the photo you just imported into your Playlist, to
Rename your hologram.
You can also find these options by going to
Edit in the HoloPlay Studio's window bar.
Most of these options are self explanatory, but I want to take the time to go over
Edit Length allows you to edit the time that a hologram plays in your playlist, both in Desktop Mode and Standalone Mode. If the hologram is a video, however, you won't be able adjust its length of play.
If I have a specific order I want my holograms to play in, how do I do that? I'm glad you asked.
When you hover over your playlist selection, you'll see a small grid appear to the left of the hologram's title.
By dragging that, you can reorder your playlist any way you'd like.
Now, select your newly imported iPhone hologram in your playlist and take a look at the right Properties panel that has opened up for you.
Selecting an iPhone hologram from your playlist not only automatically displays it in the Looking Glass Portrait, but it also allows you to make live changes to the following properties:
You can also frame and crop your hologram with the following controls:
Once you're done making your properties and framing adjustments, those changes will stay until you decide to edit it again.
