Can I remove the background with 'Instant Avatar'?
Our 'Instant Avatar' does not have a background removal feature. If you need to remove the background, you would need to upgrade to Instant Avatar Finetune, which utilizes the AI matting feature to remove the background. However, please be aware that the quality of background removal depends on the quality of your footage. Factors such as obstructions in the background or uneven lighting can affect the effectiveness of AI background removal. Alternatively, you can also consider purchasing the 'Studio Avatar' version which offers professional-level manual background removal.
