I’m often asked how I save my narrating Memoji for use in my videos, and I’m going to show you very quickly now. Bear in mind, this only works on a device with a Face ID camera, so I’m using my iPhone for this, rather than my iPad. In the Messages app, you want to start a new conversation in the top corner, and you want to start that conversation with yourself. So, type in your name, tap on it, and then you’ll have a blank conversation ready to go. From here, tap onto the Memoji button in the apps toolbar, and then you can start talking. When you press the red record button, you’ve then got 30 seconds to record your animated Memoji. You can talk about whatever you like; it will mirror your face movements and gestures, and when you’re done, you press the red stop button. You can then use the arrow to send it, and it will send that video clip to yourself. To save this video into your Photos app, you need to tap and long press on the Memoji, then choose ‘Save’. It will save with a transparent background, and that means you can then use it in other programs or applications to put your animated head wherever you want it to go.

All of my content is completely free to watch. However, to create these videos I require a steady stream of caffeine!
