Face mesh provides a 3D mesh that mimics the user's facial movements. You can add 3D masks using the face mesh which makes your lenses more interesting. In this article, we will create a mask using the material provided in the asset library. Then, we’ll attach objects to the mesh so that they can move with the user's face movements.
Let's get started!
Open Lens Studio and create a new project. On the left upper side, there is an object panel. Click on the + button and select face mesh. This adds a head binding and face mesh.
Sometimes you might want to change part of your lenses and replace them with an image or object or even an effect. Segmentation allows you to do that while using segmentation textures. For instance, you can change the background by adding the texture you want or changing the user’s hair by adding color or a texture to it.
Types of segmentation textures include portrait background, portrait hair, portrait shoulder, portrait face, portrait head, sky, and body. We will look at what they do later on in this article.
Let's first look at how you can create a different background and…
Visual scripting is one of the ways that you can add interactivity to your lenses. It is node-based, enabling you to see the logic as you are creating. You also don't need to write code.
In this article, you will see how responses can be executed when certain events are enabled using node-based visual scripting.
The events that will be used are the smile started and smile finished events. The responses will be an appearance of text when the user smiles and a second, different text when the user stops smiling. Let's see how to do that with Visual Scripting.
Tween Manager is used in making custom animations within Lens Studio. This helps you make your lenses more engaging and captivating. You also don't need to write any code. In this article, you will learn how the different types of tweens works.
To get started, you will need to open Lens Studio and create a new project.
Once you have a new project, go to the Objects panel and search for Helper scripts. Then hover on Helper scripts and click on Tween Manager.
Pandas is a powerful open-source library that is used in the analysis and manipulation of data. A Pandas DataFrame is a tabular representation of data.
A Pandas DataFrame is similar to an excel spreadsheet.
Now that we have a basic understanding of what Pandas is we will look at how you can start using Pandas DataFrame methods.
The first thing you need to do is to install Pandas. After you have had Pandas installed, we will look at Data Frames.
To begin with go to the Jupyter Lab and then we will use this data for this article.
Particles in Lens Studio make your lenses look cool and are fun to create. Lens Studio has a template that comes with a number of particle presets which give you an idea of what particle effects are. These presets can be exported from Lens Studio and used in your project. Let's get started with creating particles and learning how they can be manipulated.
The first thing you need to do is open Lens Studio and click on New Project to open a new project. After opening, head over to the Objects panel and select particles.
The material editor in Lens Studio enables you to customize materials that improve the quality of your lenses. Lens Studio has materials that you can modify and use in your lenses. It can be frightening to use the material editor at first but trust me, if you give it time it becomes easier.
In this article, you will learn more about the material editor and how you can make materials without needing to writing code. Let's dive into it!
To begin with, materials are objects that influence how an object looks and even moves. Materials are made of shaders (computer…
Lens Studio allows you to import and add audio to your lenses. Adding audio to your lenses enhances the nature of the lenses by enabling the viewer more interaction. It can be added in behavior scripts as a response and even in animations. Behavior scripts in lens studio enable you to make interactions in your lenses by defining a trigger type and a response for that trigger.
In this article, you will learn how to add audio as a response to the behavior script. Later on, you will learn how to add audio effects and preview them on your Snapchat…
Lens Studio allows us to add interactivity to Lenses with no code. Furthermore, you can get started by using one of the many templates provided by Lens Studio.
For instance, you can perform a certain operation using a face trigger or a touch trigger, just to mention a couple possibilities. Some of the face events that you can track include mouth opened/mouth closed, brows raised/ closed.
And some of the touch triggers include tap, touch start, touch end. …
Face Effects allow you to make alterations to faces in Lens Studio. Face effects can be used to make subtle changes on the face, exaggerated changes such as bulging of the face, and you can even add art and art objects to the face. These face effects include eye color, face stretch, face liquify, and more. Let’s look at these face effects in more depth.
As the name suggests, this effect allows you to prolong parts of a user’s face. Face stretch enables you to create funny face effects on users’ faces.
