  • 'Randomizer': A selfie effect that builds on the evergreen randomizer effect by offering a much bigger, and highly customizable, payoff.
  • 'Fantasy Face': A selfie effect that lets you change your appearance and atmosphere in the blink of an eye, introducing you to many ins and outs of aesthetic adjustments.
  • 'Emitter': An effect that brings in particle emitters -- or the idea of such -- and introduces you to deeper complexity with using timing to control your effect experience.
  • 🎭 3 different experiences to choose from (with more on the way), both for Meta and TikTok, so a total of 6 effects. Each experience is designed to be a fun and engaging way to learn the basics of AR development.

Who this is for:

...if you are interested in learning how to create AR effects for Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok, but aren't interested in dealing with programming.

  • These templates and tutorials are especially good for beginners, as they build on basic effects to show how to expand on your own ideas.
  • If you're a developer, you'll find these templates useful as a quick-start for real-world client use cases.
  • If you're a designer, you'll be off to the races in no time; if you're otherwise happy with the effects as they are you can simply replace assets with your own.

What this isn't:

  • A design course -- though the templates provided all have their own assets you are free to use, the ultimate idea is that they are placeholders for your designs and ideas.
  • A deep dive -- this is AR Quickstart, with an emphasis on quick. Within a few hours you can go from no prior knowledge of these environments to knowing how to completely modify, add to, and publish your own effects. Basic interaction with the software involved is covered, but it is not exhaustive.
