Snap Lenses & Geofilters
Using Maximo and Lens Studio, the following was the first Snap Lens I made using the Animated Template on Lens Studio. The character skin, rig and animation were downloaded from Mixamo and imported into Lens Studio to create this AR Lens. This camera lens has had almost 17,000 views and over 6,000 plays in less than one month!
In two weeks, I learned how to animate on Blender by rigging a mesh and playing around with different movements and rotations. I learned how to apply a UV Map and textures to the body and face and learned how to keyframe the different movements to create animations. The interactive animations were exported into Lens Studio where the different animations I made on Blender were applied to the three different ghosts on the Lens. When the ghosts are tapped, each ghost performs a different action.
Before I designed geo-filters, I spent the day at Santa Monica Pier to get to know the culture and vibes of the location. Santa Monica Pier is fun and light-hearted. There are lots of tourists that visit the Pier and the Pier is the end of Route 66.
