Welcome AR Creators! 👋
Are you ready for another Lenslist x Snap Call for Content?
As a way to celebrate the Snap’s Partners Summit 2021, we come to you with another dare! And since the newest Lens Studio 4.0 update comes with some amazing new possibilities:
- Multi-person 3D Body Mesh
- Cloth Simulation
- Gesture-enabled controls & Voice-enabled commands for UI
We want you to put them into work right away! 💪
So this time, to catch the eyes of the whole AR Community, we ask you to…
Join our virtual catwalk and show us FASHION through your Lens! 👔👠👛✨🤩
Step into fashion designer’s slickest sneakers and come up with an in vogue Lens that shows off your creative style best. Apart from the newest Lens Studio additions, we encourage you to utilize features like 👇
👉 3D Full Body Tracking
👉 2D Full Body Tracking
Set a new trend with your fashion Lens and start designing your brand-focused portfolio!
As AR connoisseurs, we notice how important your preview videos are, in terms of engaging the audience and gaining recognition as an AR Creator. That’s why another thing we ask of you is to turn your preview video into a full-on fashion video! 🎬 So even if your Lens won’t utilize any of the mentioned features, make it fashionable – even if it’s as simple as a classic white t-shirt!
Just like our previous activation, this is not a competition, but an open Call for Content with a potential opportunity to be featured on Lenslist and, with some help from our friends at Snap, a potential opportunity to be featured on Snapchat and Snap Camera!
Explore the Lens Studio features we encourage you to use in this FASHION-focused Call for Content 👇✨
✨ New 3D Body Mesh and Cloth Simulation
Allows you to experiment with full apparel outfits, create a whole AR look and make the whole experience as real as it can be!
✨ New Gesture-enabled Controls
They let you add the smoothest UI to your Lenses, which allows Snapchatters to physically signal Lenses to take an action, like switching between different items by moving your hand.
✨ New Voice-enabled Commands
Allow users to verbally control AR Lenses — over 40 commands like ‘next’ or ‘take a Snap’ let you go hands-free, even from across the room!
As well as, introduced last year:
👉 3D Full Body Tracking
The 3D Body Template allows you to track the position and rotation of joints on the body in 3D. You can track one or more bodies at the same time, as well as partial bodies. With this feature you can literally play dress up by putting your favorite clothing on any Snapchatter and turning the Snapchat Camera into a virtual changing room!
👉 2D Full Body Tracking
With 2D Full Body Tracking you can now create Lenses that move with your entire body. In technical terms, this means you’ll have the ability to track 18 joints and trigger effects based on those body movements – legs included! This feature would be perfect for adding some special effects to your fashion video! Learn how to implement it with: The Full Body Trigger Template & The Full Body Attachment Template.

Full Body Attachments: Attach graphics and effects to your dance videos!
SnapML allows you to add your own machine learning models to your Lenses, which means that you can extend the capabilities of Lens Studio to do more than what it comes with! Trying on shoes, identifying types of clothing or a super stylish Style Transfer – the possibilities are endless! Go to SnapML Overview to learn how to implement this feature.
