One of the key features of the immensely popular messaging app, Snapchat, is the ability to add filters and effects on live media using augmented reality, with 70 million users a day interacting with AR lens within the app. At the end of 2017, Snap Inc. released Lens Studio, their free design tool for creating custom AR effects compatible with Snapchat, opening up their powerful internal interface to developers on Windows and Mac desktops.
In this workshop, we’ll show you how to design, code and deploy your own AR objects using LensStudio. Working with templates for 2D and 3D designs, you’ll be able to add animations, movements and effects perfectly superimposed on the media you upload to the app. Learn how to create your own magical AR experiences for Snapchat!
