Failed to create shader

  • Hey Mourt,

    Lens Studio is a simple but powerful Mac and Windows desktop app that's open for the community to design and build their own Snapchat Lenses - it's not a 3D modeling software. It does support the FBX export format (and OBJ) which can be generated by many of those 3D tools you're thinking about, but only if it's exported properly.

    When exporting the FBX format we have to make sure that we are using the correct settings so we can successfully import that FBX into Lens Studio. In order to get your FBX ready for importation into Lens Studio do read the 3D Object Export Guide. Then you can follow up with the 3D Object Import guide when you're ready to import that freshly made FBX into Lens Studio.

    If you run into any difficulties following those guides let us know and we can troubleshoot from there.
