Why does snapchat show an impossible example?

  • Hi Miguel,

    I’m excited to see your experience! Thanks for pointing this out, it’s good to always check the RAM usage of Lenses.

    The size of this lens is large because we provided high resolution textures for Mark and the City (for example the texture of the poster to print). We can reduce the RAM size without changing the functionality of the Lens by resizing the textures in the Lens. We agree that this is confusing and will update the template for our next release!

    If you delete all the Mark animation / content by deleting the “MyScene [REPLACE_ME]” in the Objects panel, you should free up some RAM for your content.


    If you still need more RAM, you can reduce the amount of crosses in the CrossController. To do this:

    Open CrossController.js and replace the initializeMesh function with the following to allow you to set a custom number of crosses:

    function initializeMesh() {
    var numCross = script.textures.length - 1;
    var w = script.markerComponent.marker.height * script.markerComponent.marker.getAspectRatio() * 1.01;
    var h = script.markerComponent.marker.height * 1.01;
    var r = script.fromCenter ? numCross/2 : numCross;
    var options = {
    radius: r,
    meshHalfSize: w / 50,
    dx: w / numCross,
    dy: h / numCross,
    animationFinishedCallback: onCrossAnimationFinished,
    crossController = new CrossGenerator(options);

    Then, select CrossController in the Objects panel, tick the box next to “Advanced” and press the trash can icon next to a couple of the Textures:

    Let me know if you need any clarification!
