how to make an animation??

  • Hey Maxime,

    There are a ton of different ways to make animations:

    • Traditional  (2D, Hand Drawn)
    • 2D (Vector-Based)
    • 3D (CGI, Computer Animation)
    • Motion Graphics (Typography, Animated Logos)
    • Stop Motion (Claymation, Cut-Outs)
    • and more!

    To learn how to create these you can watch youtube videos or attend an online/in-person class. But once you do make the animation you can incorporate them into your Lens following:

    • this guide for 2D animations
    • and this guide for 3D animations

    Alternatively, you can download animated 3d objects from 3rd party sites like Mixamo or Turbosquid and import them into your project following this guide.

    Remember though, you do not need animation to make an amazing Lens. You can always utilize the 2D Picture Frame, Cutout, and/or Static Object template guides to learn how to craft a fun Lens experience without animation.
