I notice that when I try to use the photobooth with the moving backdrops (like the fish, etc) it has 'holes' in the picture. It's not distinguishing me from the wall very well and the picture is patchy. anyone figure out a fix to this or having this issue also? :confused: Thank you :D

PPC or Intel

Having the same issues here and I have not figured out a fix.
All of these features require an Intel Mac and do not work correctly on PPC, so unless you have a new Intel Mac, you are out of luck with the new ichat and photo booth features.

For me the 'holes' are my eyebrows, hair, and goatee :)

I can't figure out why as there is nothing the color of my hair in the background.

make sure your background is different from your skin, hair and clothes color, and make sure you don't cast a shadow on your background
it's complicated to do, this shot took me half an hour to set up

You know your not going to get perfect results unless you have a perfect background. There is a reason the weatherman uses a green screen - that even has issues with the high end equipment they use - ever seen a weatherman wear a green tie?

Heres a suggestion, stop messing with photobooth effects that are there for fun and buy a camera, a green sheet and a piece of video editing software. Problem solved :D
