Download an existing filter

  • Hi Adrienne,

    Do you still have access to that project file? If so, all you have to do is:

    1. Open the Project Folder in Lens Studio
    2. Log out of the other account while in My Lenses
    3. Log into the desired snap account
    4. Submit as a new Lens

    If you don't have access to the project file then we unfortunately cannot retrieve it for you and you will have to remake the Lens.

  • Hi Diego,

    The only way to modify a Lens is with the original project file. If you don't have the file, you could try reaching out to the original creator or try recreating it using the Lens Studio templates as a jumping off point.
