Step 2: Navigate to the Desired Product

Now, up at the top left under “Platform,” when I hover over it, you’ll see a whole bunch of different products here. The one we want is “Realistic Avatar,” but I want to note that their face swap and translation features are really, really good.

Step 3: Select “Realistic Avatar”

But we’re going to stick to this one here for this video, so I’m going to click on “Realistic Avatar.”

Step 4: Get Started

Once I do that, you’ll see some options, but literally, it’s one click. Just click on “Get started,” and we’re off.

Navigating the AKOOL Timeline and Deleting Pre-built Elements

Once you’re inside the platform, you’ll see a pre-built timeline designed for an eCommerce project.

Since we’re creating a singing avatar, we need to start from scratch.

Delete Pre-Built Elements:

Click on each element in the timeline and hit the trash icon to delete them. This will give you a blank timeline to work with.

Switching to Portrait Mode for TikTok and YouTube Shorts

For creating a TikTok or YouTube Short style video, you might want to switch the aspect ratio to portrait mode.

Change Aspect Ratio: Click on the monitor icon and select “Portrait”. This setup is perfect for social media platforms like TikTok and YouTube Shorts.

Uploading Your Custom Avatar Image

Next, we’ll upload a custom avatar image that will sing your song.

  1. Go to Avatars: On the left side, click on “Avatar”.
  2. Upload Your Own Avatar:
    • Click on the plus icon next to “My Avatar”.
    • Choose to upload an image. For example, I uploaded an image of Marcus Aurelius to make the Roman Emperor sing.
