Multi segmentation in one lens

  • I have the same question. For example, hair and background segmentation at the same time. 

    Wonder if it's possible.

  • Same question here, been looking for a way to do this for the past week but no luck yet.

    Is it a Lens Studio limitation ?

  • Hey all,

    Yes this is definitely possible. I'd recommend in this case actually not using the Segmentation template. The reason why is it's fairly complicated to make the building process for most users very easy. Segmentation itself is actually fairly easy. You create a segmentation texture in the Resources panel. Then, apply that segmentation texture to a camera's Mask Texture field. The camera's output will then be masked by the segmentation texture. 

    I created an example project here:

    This project has two perspective cameras for 3D objects and two orthographic camera's for billboards. In each camera set, there is one for portrait background segmentation and one for portrait hair segmentation. If you're adding new objects to this project. Make sure to add it underneath the correct camera type and then set its Layer (with object selected, top of the Inspector panel) to either "segmentationPortrait" or "segmentationHair". 

    Hope that helps!

  • Thanks Travis!

    I used your example (an previous advice) to create a segmentation who change when we tap, until then everything works.

    Now i want add objects and change them when I tape with the diffrent segmentations. i know the process but my object are not visible.

    Do you have an advice please?

  • Hey Takinours, it sounds like your objects are behind your segmentation. Can you take a look at this section "Adding Additional Objects" in this guide:

  • Hey,

    I've tried using your example file but instead of hair I used body segmentation and it works on my laptop in previews but it doesn't work on any mobile devices. The background segmentation disappears and the entire background becomes the texture I applied for the body. Do you know any way to fix this? Could it be a issue with the file being made in an older version of lens studio
