iOS App Store: To download the Reals Mobile app, simply search for it in the App Store or click here and click 'Get' to install.
Google Play: Currently, the app is not available for Android devices. We will update this guide as soon as the Android version is introduced!
You can also be directed to the iOS App Store via the Reals editor. When going to the Presenter tab on the right menu bar, then selecting 'My Presenter' tab, and clicking on the ‘Your Character’ button. A pop-up will appear with a QR code that can be scanned which will lead you straight to the Reals mobile app.
We provide four different options for logging in to the Reals Mobile app. It is recommended to use the same login method used on the Reals platform. Choose from the following:
- Sign in with Apple
- Sign in with Google
- Sign in with LinkedIn
- Sign in with email and password
If you don't have an account yet, don't worry! You can create one directly within the app.
Setting up for recording is crucial to achieving the best results. Here are some recommendations:
- Ensure good front lighting, and if possible, use a tripod to stabilize your phone.
- You do not need a greenscreen, but make sure to have a clear background.
- Plain white or solid-color walls work best.
- Position your phone at shoulder height using a tripod or by leaning it vertically against a tall object.
- Stand approximately 2-3 steps away from the phone until your face is aligned with the head silhouette.
Now, let's get started! Tap the Record button to begin a 3-second countdown. During this time:
- Stay still!
- Keep your head centered within the head silhouette and avoid tilting it.
- Focus your gaze on the small orange button located at the top of the screen for 6 seconds.
After 6 seconds, the app will notify you that the capture is complete. You can review the result and decide whether to use this take or try again.
Important: Please keep the app open until the video is approved and successfully uploaded.
After your take receives approval, you'll gain the ability to choose a voice from our extensive catalog. The selected voice will automatically become the default for your virtual human. Should you decide to switch to a different voice, you can easily do so using the Reals editor right within the platform. If you've created a Voice Clone, you'll also have the option to utilize your own voice.
To ensure a safe and appropriate environment, we strictly prohibit any form of inappropriate content, including nudity, exploitation of minors, illegal activities, and more. Any submission containing such content will be immediately blocked. For more information on content moderation for the mobile app, click here.
Once your footage is uploaded to the Hour One servers for processing, you will see a countdown indicating the estimated time for the completion of your virtual human. You can select 'Notify When Done' to receive a notification when your virtual human is ready. At this point, you can close the app!
After signing in to Reals, you can find your new virtual human in the editor by selecting the 'Presenter' tab in the right menu bar, and then choosing 'My Presenter'! Now, let your virtual you take center stage!
