You can add breaks in your script by clicking on the stopwatch icon on the bottom of the text box. Each break is 0.5 seconds long.

How do I make sure I get the right result when I generate a face?

Image prompting is a mix of art and science. Our image-generating software is optimized to produce faces that can be animated in the studio, but there is a lot of room for creativity. To get started, we suggest you select one of the pre-created prompts and try out variations of those. Alternatively, try searching for prompts and inspiration on Lexica or numerous prompt-building platforms available online.

Watermark

Why do all your videos have a watermark?

It is important for us, as a company that enables users to create AI-based content, that there is transparency about the synthetic nature of the videos we generate. This is also reflected in our ethical manifesto, available at http://d-id.com/ethics.

 

What does the watermark look like?

Depends on your plan: 

Image, text and audio moderation

Why was my image rejected?

There are two possible reasons:

A. The image you are trying to use failed to pass our built-in moderation process. Moderation is carried out by a 3rd party tool and bypassing it is only allowed for enterprise customers, provided they use their own moderation solution.

If you are an Advanced plan user, you have the option to request a manual review

B. Your image doesn’t follow our image guidelines:
– Facing camera, medium shot
– Neutral expression, closed mouth
– Minimum head size 200×200 pixels
– Good and consistent lighting
– Up to 4.5MB
– No face occlusions (sunglasses, masks, visors, large earrings)

 

Why was my audio/text rejected?

This probably happened because our built-in moderation detected a violation and has therefore blocked the video from being generated. To overcome this, please remove the problematic content and try again.

 

Payment and Credits

What are credits? 

Each credit is worth up to 15 seconds of video. When generating longer videos, credits add up according to the length of the generated video. For example, a 40-second video consumes 3 credits.

 

I have a subscription but I used up all my credits, how can I get more?

For Pro and Advanced users – when generating a new video, the system validates your credit balance. If your balance is insufficient, the system automatically prompts you to purchase additional credits.

 

Do unused credits carry over to the next month?

Credits do not accumulate, they are renewed every month and unused credits become void.

Billing

How do I change my credit card details?

  1. Click the menu on the bottom left and click “Billing”
  2. Click the pen icon and change the details.

 

How do I switch between the different plans?

If you wish to upgrade or downgrade your plan, you can do that via the “Pricing” page.

 

I think I need the Enterprise plan, where can I get more information?

For details regarding the Enterprise plan please contact our support team at support@d-id.com.

 

How do I cancel my subscription?

What happens to my data if I cancel my subscription?
